Saturday Steps A Dingle, Puffin and lots of other things!!!

We found a Dingle (a steep wooded valley)
on the island of Anglesey,
Nant y Pandy also called Nant y Dilyw
 in Welsh means
Valley of the Deluge
its right by the town of

 25 acres of wooded valley with boarded footpaths and walkways.

The river Cefni runs though the middle of it

Don't think they have had much rain,
 because it looked more like a stream when we visited

Great place to visit on a hot day, plenly of shade
Time to leave, and get mom on a boat to see a puffin!!!

We saw this camper van,
mom doesn't have a thing about photographing them
 but look at the name on it

Moms name is Janet Bell,
so if you see this van its not my moms lol!!!
LINK to her web site

Nice art work Janet ;)

OK mom get on the boat.
Shes sailing away to Puffin island

"Bye mom see you later" 
see we didn't even stay to watch her go
"come on dad, I think its a pint in the pub" 

"Good grief mom is that it, a puffin!!! can you zoom in on it" 

"OK its a puffin"
"George, we have always come to visit at the wrong time of year!! over the last two weeks they have been leaving, but at least I have seen one, even if it was so far away!" 

"As long as you are happy that's what counts, I'm very happy me and dad have spent the two hours you where gone in the pub, I call that a result"

Sorry no photos, well you wouldn't want to see me tipsy now would you, I've  just got to sleep it off.

Before I go there some things I must tell you about.

Last Saturday mom dad and me went on a pub crawl/walk around Ironbridge with Boomer, 

and his furiends, we had a great time.

Boomer  now has his own web page and blog

I also made friends with Rolo the greyhound,
 He has just started blogging.

I'm sure they would love you to welcome them to the world of Blogland

Boomer and Rolo are also on twitter,
  they both said I should join, I have, its been a blast.
Mom being mom, wanted to follow the local news!!! how boring.
Until they asked for, what do you love about where you live, mom sent off a photo and a tweet that said

"The Countryside of Shropshire, Grinshill and Corbet Woods gets the 4 paws up from me"

You remember back in June I gave them the 4 paws up award.

Well blow me down, they used the photo on the evening news
Look out for me, on the link

If that doesn't work here's a photo

I got mail in the week, I entered

Thanks to you all that voted for me,
 I came second, look what they sent

A beautiful home make picture and their favourite treats

Thanks Dex and Lou, its going up on the wall.

I'm nearly done, I know I'm rabbiting on,
Wyatt in the week put up a blog post
 about the B day presents I had sent him,
 no need but thanks Wyatt, he showed you the stamps I had sent.

You would have seen that I have had my very own stamp done,

They are proper stamps
that can be used on a first class letter in the U.K.


Ok I'm done for this post, I have had a great week, but I have been busy, so I am behind on my blog reading.
So miss you all when I don't have time.

 Its a Bank Holiday weekend over here, so I will be out and about, will catch up with you all soon,

Have a great weekend and week, what ever you get up to.
See Yea Soon George xxx

Well, we got to go get the rest of our pictures for the hunt. We still need a Mountain, which is funny cuz we can see Mt. Hood everyday, but the lighting is always wrong :(

Hi George, what a lovely set of photo's, as usual - our Momster is quite envious that your Mom went off on the boat trip, we think you got the best deal with your Dad at the pub :-) The stamps are just brilliant, we're going to check those out, fancy being on the TV too - wow you'll be asked for paw prints before long George with all this fame! So glad you liked the picture, we instructed HER on what to do of course! Have a great bank holiday weekend, Dex and Lou xxx

Hi George, wow, you always find the best places to walk. Great idea to stay at the pub with your dad. You don't want to tire yourself out and dad probably needed a little refreshment too. We will visit your new friends on their blog. Take care. No worries, and love, Stella

Loved the walk on the dingle. You can't imagine how much I missvthe scent of underwood...
And a puffin?! WOW! Never saw one. Werethe other beats seals? You had a very interesting week!
I'm on my way to visit your friends's blog.
Have a nice week.

Bouncing Bertie said...

Hi George
Gail says a big "well done" to your Mum for getting that photo of the puffin. I am far more impressed by the fact that you have your very own stamps. They truly are First Class (although I am not sure that they would go down too well with certain ignorant folk in Scotland....)
Toodle pip!

Hoke said...

Amazing and you are famous!!!!!

♥I am Holly♥ said...

Your photos are always so beautiful! You go to the nicest and most fun places!!! Thanks for sharing!! Lots of love, Debbie & Holly

My Mind's Eye said...

Hugs Madi and Mom

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Congrats on your photo runner up George!
You were on TV too, wow!
And what were you staring at George, the big thing with 3 legs up in the air? A big rock or a big piece of wood?
Looks like a belly up elephant!
We're so sorry that we didn't visit you a long while, we miss you so much.
We're back, will follow you around!

Sage said...

That was a magical trip you took us on, George. With Puffins, no less! I hooked up with Bommerang on Twitter, but now I need to check out his blog. We're almost cousins, you know. Oh, yes, you told me that.....

julee said...

George, you have had quite the week! Traveling, drinking, partying, walking, singing, whee!

Congrats on your win!

Unknown said...

You sure got a lot of stuff done. Congrats on coming out on TV! Seeing yourself on the screen, how cool is that?

Looks like you have a very beautiful spot of the earth over there:)

Homer said...

Oh my dog... George! Why do I begin? First, you got pissed in the pub with your dad. Then you appear on National telly and now your face is on the stamps!?! Wow! I also want to get pissed too! That's it, I'm going to the pub.


Stewey said...

Beautiful post!! I never saw a puffin before, so thanks for showing the puffin photo!

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...


Oh son, thank you for coming to visit mum's place; she is back at school and is gone all day now. AND I AM NOT AMUSED! If you have time, go to NOWHERE and see a rendition she did of how I feel about her leaving me to miself!!!!

AND....she is thinking of having a mailing stamp of either MOI or Tea Rat.....HMMMMPH! I think I should be the one sending the mail!!!


J_on_tour said...

Wow, what a post and what a star you are George on TV. You're going to have to start charging for people to visit your blog ;-) You certainly give value for money with the amount of material here !
I have a few memories and recollections of this time last year when I went with two friends to The Farne Islands to see the seals and puffins. We were also told that the birds had already flown.
I know it might not be & it's no-where near where you were staying but that camper van looks awfully like it's parked on the front at Beaumaris. I wanted to photograph that building but there were too many cars on the grass and had to make do with a door & a window.

Road Dog Tales said...

This post is jam-packed with fun and exciting stuff! It may take more than one reading. We have to say we are most excited about your star turn on the news! And having your very own stamp! WOW! We love seeing pics of wildlife and these were really cool. Not every day you see a puffin, eh? Or a bunch of, um, are they seals?, lying about. How cool is that?! What a great post!

Pup Fan said...
