Meet Explorer Beastie

Explorer Beastie 1

I think it’s about time Explorer Beastie made a special guest appearance on my BeastieBlog.  I actually made him before Christmas – work commenced in quiet moments behind my market stall table in November – and he has been providing me with stuff to talk about on my Beasties Facebook page ever since.  I have equipped him for adventure, by filling his backpack with everything he’ll need on his travels…

Sandwich and Compass

… So now I have an excuse to photograph him getting up to all sorts of mischief.

Beastie in Curragh

(The conveniently Beastie-sized boat is a minature Boyne Curragh – a traditional Irish river boat made from hazel wood and cow hide.  You can find out more about them here)

I have also taken him out and about with me on my wanderings around Dublin.  Unfortunately, since we are currently in the depths of winter, his expeditions have been mostly limited to cafes…
Brother Hubbard Cafe (Brother Hubbard, Capel Street)

… And bars.

Against the Grain (Against the Grain, Wexford Street)

But I’m optimistic that when spring comes around, he’ll get to go further afield.

I’m also working on some new friends for him, who should be ready soon!
Have a great weekend!
