Last week my hoomans were off work for the whole week and what an exciting week it was, I have so much to tell you about, they took me here, there and EVERYWHERE!
The first place I want to share with you is Loggerheads Country Park in North Wales, I visited with my hoomum mid-morning on Friday and it was so lovely and quiet.
We arrived at the carpark (£2 for four hours) at about 10:30, Hoomum was happy because she had spotted a cafe and she was looking forward to a cup of tea when we had completed the trail. I was looking forward to having my lunch there.
When we got to the trail I was so excited, there were so many new sights, sounds and smells I couldn’t decide what to do first. After overhearing a conversation in the carpark, I decided that I would try my hand (or paw) at foraging, and puppy did I strike gold…
I stumbled upon a MASSIVE mushroom called ‘Chicken of the Woods’, I know, I couldn’t believe the name either but my hoomum looked it up and it’s legit, see. It wasn’t long before I was bored of foraging and a bit further down the trail I thought I would take a risk and try my paw at bouldering…
I know it’s not much, but I am still a baby. I can’t wait until I’m old enough to go climbing and hiking properly.
We kept walking, the trail follows the River Alyn and then joins the Leete Path which finishes in a small Welsh village called Pantymwyn not far from the Cilcain mountain. We turned around not far after Devil’s Gorge as hoomum was worried about my little paws aching.
We were about half way back to the cafe and carpark area when I decided that I was getting rather warm and there was only one thing for it, I had to take a dip to cool off..
I didn’t go too deep and because of the recent warm weather the river was quite shallow anyway.
We finished the trail and headed over to the cafe for a rest, hoomum had her cup of tea (£1.95 for a HUGE takeaway cup) and I had my yummy lunch, I was STARVING after all that fun.
Loggerheads Country Park is heaven for a young adventurous pup like me, it really catered for my every need. I hope this post inspires other pups to visit.
