Hello everybody! Well, I think the title says it all - the terrible twosome are out on tour again, and look where they've washed up! I think Belfast's Titanic Quarter had better brace itself... Paddy was only a little disappointed that he wasn't allowed to climb up on one of the silvery points and shout … Continue reading A Titanic Adventure for Paddy and Plunkett!
It's starting to feel decidedly wintry here in Beastie Towers these last few days - the trees outside are almost bare, and the sun seems to be getting up ever later every morning, and having A LOT of early nights! So I'm sure you can understand why I was very happy to discover this last … Continue reading Paddy and Plunkett in Poreč
I'll be honest with you... Paddy and Plunkett were more than a little miffed that Explorer Beastie didn't invite them along on his recent trip to Copenhagen. So, when they had the chance to hitch a lift to another bike-loving city (one a bit closer to home), you won't be surprised to hear that they … Continue reading Cambridge – Worth a Punt!
Attentive Beastie fans will surely remember this guy from last Tuesday's post! Diver Beastie headed off to join, of all things, a marauding crew of pirates across the water in the UK. Incredibly, his arrival coincided perfectly with his new pirate captain's birthday... They even had a portrait photographer handy when they met for the … Continue reading Beasties Ahoy!
New year, new feature... Welcome to the first instalment of Explorer Beastie's Dublin! Explorer Beastie had a bit of a quiet year in 2015... ... So we thought that it would be fun for both of us to get out a little more, and show you the hidden corners of our city from a Beastie's-eye … Continue reading A Sunny Stroll by the Grand Canal
Diligent BeastieBlog readers will surely remember this cheeky little ruffian! Pirate Beastie has been an important part of the crew here at Beastie Towers for a while, and I was wondering if he'd ever get a chance to set sail and see the wider world. But while I was on my holidays, I got a … Continue reading Postcard From Pirate Beastie
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 … Continue reading Submarines and Seascapes… Paddy and Plunkett in Portsmouth, Part 3
The last time we checked in with Paddy and Plunkett, they'd got carried away exploring the Isle of Wight and missed the last boat back to the mainland! Fortunately, it seems they eventually managed to make their return journey by stowing away on a passing ship ... the cable pattern on Paddy's jumper is perfect … Continue reading Paddy and Plunkett’s Portsmouth – Part 2
These adventurous little monsters can't seem to get enough of life on the high seas! After their recent visit to the National Maritime Museum in Co.Dublin, Paddy and Plunkett have resurfaced in Portsmouth - a city with centuries of naval history to its name. Coming as they do from an island nation, it's little wonder … Continue reading Paddy and Plunkett Head to Portsmouth
At last! I've had some new Beasties "in progress" for what feels like forever, and last week I finally got around to putting on the last of their accessories and taking them outside for a photoshoot. First of the new recruits is Pirate Beastie... I took him down to the Docklands on a sunny weekday … Continue reading Pirates, Ninjas and… Skiing?
