Last week, we left adventurous Irish Beasties Paddy and Plunkett in something of a sticky situation… captured by an irate security guard who objected strenuously to Paddy’s attempts to take HMS Warrior for a test drive!
However, this week I’ve received another round of photos in which the pair of them appear to have eluded their captor… How can this be?
“A good escape artist never reveals his secrets,” says Plunkett. “And anyway, we had to go and have a look around the Alliance submarine.”
Although it seems like Plunkett was really only interested in hanging out in the bar…
Apparently when Alliance was in use, food was stored just about anywhere they could find space. So yes, those beers are indeed being stashed in a torpedo tube! Fortunately, it’s a long time since any torpedoes were launched from this submarine – Alliance has been a museum since 1981, so Plunkett can enjoy his tinnies in peace.
Suitably refreshed, the two lads set off for the Figurehead Museum…
…Where they met some pretty unusual ladies!
Yikes! Imagine if you saw those faces leering at you from the front of a battleship! But look what was waiting for the boys around the corner…
…A whole knitted underwater scene! Look closely and you’ll see turtles, starfish and mermaids as well as hundreds of multicoloured fish! Paddy and Plunkett could have stayed here for hours, but then they saw this…
“Is that the Giant’s Causeway? We really have been away for quite a while… maybe it’s time to head home. Hope you’ve enjoyed following us around Portsmouth, see you soon for more monster adventures!”

Heehee! Was that for the knitted ocean? So cool!
Oh,it was for it and for all the beauty you share! A new emoton every single time I read a post of yours!
Awwww, thanks! It’s nice to hear someone say such nice things about my monster-based ramblings 🙂
Your boys have certainly captured our imaginations with their seafaring adventures, I’m glad Captain Jack Sparrow not show up for his curtain call, as you two Beasties are wayyyyyyy cooler 🙂
Awww, thanks! They’ll be happy to hear that! To be honest, I never anticipated them taking such an interest in the nautical life… I’m starting to wonder if I should knit them a boat and some life vests before they had off on their next trip!
LOL I think you had better as there is no way of knowing what they will be up to next 🙂
