Saturday Steps+ A Weekend at the Sea

We had a weekend away on Anglesey North Wales, in Auntie's tin box,

First stop was the beach at Trearddur Bay

I thought I was going to be the only dog there!! then Scrabble turned up

She was great fun, best of all she showed he how to bunny hop

I got real good at it.

Then I found out if you ....hop....skip.....

You can fly!!!

I also had ago at paddling

But felt a little trapped at times!!!

After all that running around it was time for an afternoon nap

Only to be poked by dad telling me it was time for a walk to the pub!!!
But it wasn't the kind of walk to the pub I'm used to!!!!!!

Mom wanted to go off by herself to take photos, and said she would meet us at the pub in the car, while me and dad walked along the coastline to get there!!!

This is the Coastguard Station. It's unmanned at the moment but they are asking for volunteers.

I think I should put up
  for the job!
"Hey Dad, not bad for mobile phone photos".

We where going to
at Rhoscolyn

A very dog friendly pub

Dad asked if there was a waterbowl for me. So the barmaid got a big bowl and put ice cubes in it.

It was so nice to have iced water at the end of a long walk.

I was also allowed a dog biscuit out of the dog jar.

Just to top it off my favorite Guinness froth.

Then it hit me out of the blue, we have awards in blogland so why not when we are out and about.
So when we got home dad helped me design an award.

If I have good service as a dog, and great walk or just think someone deserves an award I will give

George The Lads Four Paws Up Award

So my first ever award goes to

 Rhoscolyn Anglesey, North Wales 

The award will be posted off to them today.

I've just remembered I got a certificate for going into space
I think you will have to click on it to read.

I'm gutted it only took me up 220miles!!! I thought I was going to the moon.
But I did go at 17,400 miles per hour that's enough to put your hair on end!!!

Thanks for joining me on my weekend away

Have a good week whatever you are up to.
Till next time

See Yea George xxx

Oh my gosh, George, you have quite the life, fur sure! I loved every single picture but the one I loved the most was the bunny hop photo! That is so darned adorable that you learned how to bunny hop!
I love that you have such a gorgeous beach to go to and I love that you are allowed to spend time there w/o restrictions. I went to Wales nearly 10 yrs ago and it was in June and boy was it cold at that beach so I wonder if the water was too cold for you too?
Loved that you gave an award to your favorite pub! I cannot believe you get to go IN there too! And I am so impressed that there are dog bowls and treats inside! I've got to visit Wales again fur sure!

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

George, that last photo with the big happy smile tells us it was a great trip to the North Wales shore. Such fun you had with Scrabbles - looks like a lot of fun hopping, skipping, and paddling.

Great award you made there and we are sure the pub will be quite honored to receive it.

I just KNEW that fine set of steps would be leading us on a fangtastic journey. Holy Gwalk A Moley.... That girrrrl taught you to do the Bunny Hop??? And you MASTERED it so quickly!! AMAZING!! AND THEN ... the dawg furendly pub... What a Place that is!!! I can certainly see why you and your dad made the super duper AWARD... fur them. I have a feeling it is going to be very much difficult to fine any other pub that can hold a Milkbone to THAT PLACE.

rottrover said...

What a wonderful trip you had with your family, George. We think we should make some FLAT rotties for you to take with you next time!!

WFT Nobby said...

Hi George
Anglesey looks like a wonderful place. Gail says she went there on summer holidays when she was a very little girl, so about a zillion years ago then! Looks like you had a wonderful time on the beach with Scrabble. After all that bunny hopping I assume you are going to enter Jazzi's Easter Bunny competition!

That was one fine trip to the beach, George! You sure can fly, so I think that trip into space will be a snap.

J_on_tour said...

It looks like you had a fun time George, with plenty of action on the beach and a great welcome in the pub unlike the coastguard station where unfortunately no-one wants to go. I might be following in your footsteps here next month... haven't decided on the weather dependant itinerary yet.
