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…
(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…

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