Summer in the Countryside

Explorer Beastie Goes For A Walk! CrawCrafts Beasties

It’s been a while since we last caught up with Explorer Beastie… with so many of his Beastie brothers and sisters sending reports of their travels to us, he hasn’t really got a look-in! So a trip out west to my boyfriend’s family farm was a perfect opportunity for him to take a wander, and for me to take some long-overdue photos.

First up – check in with the cows!

I think this is the first chance I’ve had to share photos of the farm in high summer, and even I was surprised at how green everything was! Look at this… no filters, no fiddling, just nature doing its thing.

Next, we decided to head up onto the bog. The path was a bit overgrown… but that’s no problem for an adventurous little Beastie!

Even in summertime, the bog is noticeably less lush than the surrounding meadows – definitely easier terrain for those with slightly shorter legs!

It’s also the perfect place to stop for a snooze in the sun! Explorer Beastie found himself a comfy place to rest for a minute in a patch of springy heather. I bet he’s glad he packed his sunscreen!

But eventually Explorer Beastie decided he’d had enough of my paparazzi-ing, and made a break for it in the long grass!

Don’t worry, he made it home in time for dinner!

More Beastie adventures next week, wishing you all a monster weekend!

  1. I love the snoozing snap! I wish the sun would come back over in Yorkshire! It’s been a pretty rubbish summer weather-wise over here! x

  2. My goodness how on earth do you keep up with such a whirlwind of Beastie activity ? Loving the accessories in his backpack …I was always curious as to what was in there LOL

    1. Hahaha! It’s true that after chasing Explorer Beastie around the fields, and then helping bring the cows in to see the V.E.T, I did start to wonder what became of my plans for a restful country break. Thank goodness for my boyfriend’s mum’s massive roast dinners – they really help keep the energy levels up!
