Plunkett, Eden Project Vegetable Garden - H Crawford/CrawCrafts Beasties

The View From Outside Eden

Can you believe it? Paddy and Plunkett are still exploring the Eden Project! I always thought that the main draw of this awesome place was the exotic plant communities that live inside the biomes, but WOW was I wrong! It turns out that there's a lot to see outside those bubble-like domes too. And, to … Continue reading The View From Outside Eden

(B)East of Eden 2 – Another Level!

Hello there Beastiebuddies! We're heading back to Cornwall this week, to rejoin Paddy and Plunkett as they make their way to the very top of the 50m tall Rainforest Biome at the Eden Project... No mean feat when you're only 6 inches tall! Since I've wanted to visit Eden for a reeeealllly long time, the … Continue reading (B)East of Eden 2 – Another Level!

Paddy's Vineyard Party, Eden Project - H Crawford/CrawCrafts Beasties

(B)East of Eden!

So, last week we learned that Paddy and Plunkett had taken a trip (another one!) to the south-west of England. And since they were in the neighbourhood, I got in touch to ask them a special favour... I've wanted to see the Eden Project for YEEEEEAAARS, so would they please go, and take lots of … Continue reading (B)East of Eden!

Paddy and Plunkett – A RAIL Good Time!

Well, these two certainly don't hang around in one place for very long! After exhausting the entertainment possibilities of their own attic a couple of weeks ago, Paddy and Plunkett decided that the time was right to hit the road again. Next thing I knew, they were sending me pictures from Devon, in south-west England! … Continue reading Paddy and Plunkett – A RAIL Good Time!

Castles and the Coast – A Beastie Road Trip!

You know, I was almost concerned that I'd have no monster shenanigans to share this week! Winter is yet to release its grip on Dublin, and with plenty to keep me busy inside Beastie Towers, getting out and about has been pretty far down my list of priorities. Fortunately, Paddy and Plunkett have bailed me … Continue reading Castles and the Coast – A Beastie Road Trip!

Paddy and Plunket on the Boardwalk at Cuilcagh Mountain - H Crawford/CrawCrafts Beasties

Boghopping Beasties!

The terrible twosome are back! I was looking through my old emails the other day, and I came across an unblogged Paddy and Plunkett adventure from - ta daaaah! - a bright sunny day last June. I'm not sure about you, but Spring is taking its time getting into full swing here in Dublin... ...and … Continue reading Boghopping Beasties!

Paddy, Plunkett and a Very Familiar Curragh - H Crawford/CrawCrafts Beasties

Off the Rails with Paddy and Plunkett!

Or rather on the rails, because the boys recently took a road trip... By train! Their first port of call after leaving home was (of course) a quick tea break in Belfast. You can't go adventuring without fuelling up first! They found a nice spot where they could look out at the City Hall, and … Continue reading Off the Rails with Paddy and Plunkett!

Explorer Beastie by the Sea, Fanad Head - CrawCrafts Beasties

Back to the Wild North West!

Explorer Beastie's been a bit quiet lately, hasn't he? But he always likes to take advantage of the post-Christmas lull to do a spot of out-of-town adventuring, and last week found both of us up in Donegal again, treading a slightly different path from the one we took this time last year. Actually, this breaking … Continue reading Back to the Wild North West!

2017 – A Year of Monster Adventures!

Oh wow, I can't believe we're nearly at the end of 2017 already! It's all been a bit of a blur - surely it was only just Hallowe'en? So I thought I would use this, the last "real" post of the year, to take a look back over the highlights of the last 12 months. … Continue reading 2017 – A Year of Monster Adventures!

The View From Table Mountain - S Allen/CrawCrafts Beasties

Beasties on Safari!

We've a special guest Beastie on the blog today! It's been a while since he last showed his fuzzy little face around here, but those of you who have been following the BeastieBlog long-term might well recognise him. Hey there, Garcia Beastie! If you've met him before, you may remember that he is partial to … Continue reading Beasties on Safari!
