Maiden Voyage in the "Peeps Kennel on Wheels" Pt 1.

Hiya all,

We finally did it!!! Yep mum, dad dad and I went on our first trip away in the Peep Kennel on Wheels (PKW) (the peeps call it a caravan) and I need to tell you all about it! This is one of the reasons I have not been around in Blogville much..... that and our not so great internuts service which can be VERY SLOW when it wants to...... and seriously interferes with me gettin' around to see you all!! :-(

This is the view out the front windscreen window of our car..... the PKW is behind us following the car closely.

For our first trip - my peeps decided on a nice powered site in a caravan park.... one that welcomes us DAWGS...... you know, the refined parks! This one is on the southern coast, not that far away, but has a lovely beach and stuff which you will see soon. Gotta do some set up because I'm not gonna be stuck on my lead tied the PKW for long!

Now this is more like it..... I'm much more comfortable now!! And I can fully snoopervise from my comfy wumfy spot here too!

Right........ van is popped up and this "patio" is now built. Phew..... it was such hard work too! I'm exhausted! ;-)

I can see everything from the "patio" including the loud and strange birdies in the bushes behind.

This is base camp for a few days. Can you see the other triangular PKW that is one van up from us?? Well that nice lady lives in the Barossa Valley.... and she had a beautiful rescue Rottweiler girl with her..... and we played together!

Mum thought you need to see another angle of our camp. This little river runs into the sea - you will see this in the picture after next.

The river snakes it's way through the caravan park.

 Here is Normanville Beach..... in the foreground is the end of the river and you can see the channel goin' out to sea.

Ahhhhh, new sights....... new smells!!! That fresh sea air!!!

Yes, I think it's time for a nice esplanade ice-cream..... I'm waiting nicely dad dad!!

Now THAT'S what I'm talkin' about..... just reach it down a bit lower ma!!

Oh see, mum made a baby schnauzer cone for me (at this stage i've already sampled dad dads)..... but mum even put a few nuts on the top so it's just like hers was!

It was good my furiends!!!! Slerps!!!!

Ice-cream done - it was time to check out the beach......

And meet some fellow campers. This here is Oscar..... he was a hoot - and his peeps have a permanent van right on the beach.... they like to holiday there whenever they can. We played on the beach and at the caravan park.

Back in the patio..... here is the peeps' patio furniture....

And here is mine..... my stuff is much more comfy. I even get to try out my PKW foodables bowl which my blogging bro' George (the Lad) sent me for my Birthday. See the pink one to my left?? 

Right...... here's me checking out the foodables cupboard.... see all those plastic baggies...... they contain my assorted treats and chews - a girl has to keep her strength up.

This PKW is very comfy...... now that it is getting dark outside.... we have left the patio and are inside. (I wonder where the peeps are gonna sleep? He He He!) I've found this excellent bed inside that makes an excellent nest! ZZzzzzz..... wake me for dinner will ya??

To be continued in Part 2.......

  19. Hi Rubie - sorry I haven't visited in ages (and we haven't even got driving around in a caravan as an excuse!!) - looks like you had an awesome time on your camping trip! That is the most beautiful caravan park! My humans would love to go camping one day although - ahem - they are both wimpy city types so probably couldn't even put up a tent or drive a caravan properly or anything!! ;-)
