Today is the 3rd day of travel throught the land of my ancestors. The humans supprised me with my first trip to wales! The kingdom of mighty warlocks and dreaded dragons!
The place where the faeries rides on Corgi back trough the land!
The Stuff woke me to a far better time as yesterday. The Lady showed me Acton Turville, the village where we stay the next few days. We met some local country workers. An older man told us the history of the town. Some of the people couln’t turn there eyes of such a noble being like me. The greeted me with respect and friendliness. In exchange for good cookies I let them pad my head.
After this little get to know, we started with our journey to the epic Tir-Castles!
We started our carriage and I could see the landscape. The first stop was White Castle. I was really surprised as I saw the mighty walls, the draw bridges and the ditch. There are many places to snif and explore! I met some local journey man. My shining armor fascinates human and doggy puppies equally.
The Lady has shared her secret cookie stock with me!
I bestow some human puppy a business card of me! She was over the moon. I think I will do this more while traveling!
Then we moved on to Skenfrith Castle. This ruin is in not so good shape like white castle. But the central tower and the water gate are very nice. Bevor the castle is a little river where the locals take a swim. I stopped and drank some of the tasty water.
The little river is a good place at warm and sunny days.
Near by is a beautiful “St Bridget`s Church”. Take your time and visit the church too.
The last castle today was Grosmont Castle. Here you can see big and nice parks. You can stretch your legs. The castle ruin self has a ditch a incredible gate and some walls standing.
The last Castle we visited was Grosmont Castle. There you can observer the beautiful park area. The castle it self has a deep moat and a wonderful gate.
To scare all at halowen you can find a Jack-O-Latern out of stone!
My bark was loud and strong as I send the welsh dragon tief packing! The Lady has not seen him! But I sniffed him out. The Lady said I should stop to be so childish! But the dragon was there! I am sure!
After this adventure we were hungry and thirsty. We found some dog friendly pup and I get to no a local border collie. Unfortunately, the pup doesn’t serve food with out reservation.
So we drank some lemonade and we moved on to Abergravenny a little city near by.
What should I say. The humans would not survive alone! The don’t know how to find food! They say that they are hungry and then they don’t go to an in or pup! They must look in Dog-Trust-Shops, Penny-Markets and came out with non eatable stuff.
The the found a food festival but there were no dogs allowed. I would see one goes in and brings pray for all… but this kind of intelligence the humans hadn’t developed yet.
So the wandered hungry through the city of Abergravenny. The lady hears music so she started to dance like the rats in the fairy tail…
At least we found a snack stand out of the festival. And the humans get something to eat and reboot there brain cells. And then the drop some of the food!
Their misfortune is my luck! I cleaned it up. That reminds me that I haven’t got some Fish & Chips yet. The humans had promised me at the begin of our travels! I must rise the reparation to 3 times Fish & Chips!
Then we looked to a local crafts market! The people liked me there and I found some new friends. I called them with my loud voice.
But at this time my paws started to hurt. We traveled and walked so long! The human stuff bought some nice things on the market.
After this we traveled back to our inn. I was so happy that we stopped walking. But what? The humans start to make a fuss and hurried to the local pup. And for what?! The must learn that the are to late for food serving again! Why must I walk for this news!
Then the cooked and I could finally rest.
Please oh dog goodness… less walking tomorrow!
This day was packed with activities in England and Wales! I will review them for you my audience.
Today we drive less! And we have seen interesting landscape. The gigantic bridge was on of my highlights. At some points the lady must circle a bit.
We have seen three castles in one tour! I recommend that! The castles were three nice ruins and a collie knight could explore all of then an find interesting spots! I met many new human and doggy friends. There were relaxing places as well! Don’t forget the food and water logistic! Not feeded humans are worse then not feeded puppies!
Abergravenny is a nice town. You can find many interesting places, especially the food festival and the craftsman market! Suddenly as Collie knight you are not allowed to got to the food stalls.
The Tri-Castle-Tour is very dog friendly. I met many furry and non furry friends! The castles are good accessible, especially for old dogs. There is enough space if some not so friendly dog appears. Don’t forget filled water bottles!
Abergravenny is a town where some water bowls call for a quick sib. You can rome through the streets and find interesting things behind every corner. At the craftsman market dogs are welcome!
You can make the Tri-Castle-Tour by car without a problem in a day. If you have a active dog that enjoys long walking you can try it per foot.
Please remember to bring water for dogs and humans to this tour!
The Abergravenny Food Festival and the craftsman market is a must have to visit. Split up to get food on there!
