Well it has been a very eventful week! We simply cannot wait to see all our friends tomorrow!!Yippee!!!
Here a little blog post on what we did with our time off, we would just like to take a moment to promote the amazingly wonderful Dugs N Pubs folks, whose fantastic website helped us plan our amazing camping trip! If you haven’t visited it already, get yourselves over there to ogle all the amazing trips and places you can visit with you four-legged best friends!
First stop for us was Belhaven Bay. It was an amazing weekend weather wise with the first day being one of the hottest! The sun shone until the very last-minute, it was stunning and we had a blast rolling about in the sand and enjoying the epic blue skies. All this and only 40mins drive from Edinburgh!!!
Yes don’t mind me guys, just have a wrestle right next to my face…ta!
My BEAUTIFUL girl. Words simply cannot describe how much I love my fuzzy teddy-bear.
The big-man posing for me. He knows how to work the camera!
Sun setting over Belhaven Bay.
After breaking camp the next destination was Tyninghame Beach! It was not a sunny but believe me it was hot!! I so wish I had brought my swimming costume! The water was crystal clear and so inviting.
You could be forgiven for forgetting you were in Scotland here, this stunning stretch of coast looked more like New Zealand!
Fluffy teddy paws in water 😀
Molly-moo swimming in the sea…with just a little encouragement 😉
Gus as you can tell is not up for it haha! Though he did have a little paddle with Mums help and support. He is not the most confident in the water, though it is the fastest way to cool a hot doggie.
Thanks to a lovely local lady we met out on the beach walk we were directed to this fantastic wild camp ground just over the ridge from the beach. Gorgeous….
Molly the next morning refusing to get up! After two days of extensive beach walks my two munchkins were very sleepy and more than happy to laze about in their sleeping bags whilst I read my book 🙂
After our super lazy morning we then broke camp and carried on along the coast to visit Tantallon Castle! I have to boast just a little bit now, the lovely man at the front desk said that although the dogs were perfectly welcome (on-lead) into the castle it has steep steps, and so we would probably not be able to see it all as the dogs may struggle. Did they heck!! My doggies got loads of attention from other tourists, taking photos of them as we climbed all over this amazing relic. My darlings were beyond well-behaved, wowing the men who were there to supervise visitors with their calm and obedient behaviour. Proving once again that your dogs are at their happiest when they are with you and will overcome any obstacle as long as you are there to guide and support them. They relished the challenging terrain, Gus especially was loving bouncing all over the castle and insisted that I lift him up to look out over the surrounding coast when the walls were too high. He even asked to be lifted to look down the staggering 36foot deep well!! (And no need to worry folks I had a firm hand on him each time so he was in absolutely no danger) They took the whole thing completely in their stride. I couldn’t be prouder, I could have burst with pride!
‘None shall pass!’
At the top, ‘Yup check us out Mum, climbed the castle, like a boss!!’
A stunning boxer we met outside Tantallon Castle, ‘Please come and play with me!’
Next stop, North Berwick!
Exploring the man-made swimming pool on North Berwick beach. What a lovely sea-side town, could happily live there! Such a beautiful part of the world in general, everyone should head here at some point for a fantastic doggie day out! We even had lunch and a pint at the dog friendly pub ‘The Ship Inn’ situated in the town centre about ten mins walk from the beach. All in all we had an amazing camping trip and I will be returning to this area for sure! Perhaps with some of clients doggies at the weekend when we have time, after all its only about a half hour drive away from Edinburgh! Look out North Berwick we will be back! xxx
