Winter "Get-A-Way" in the PKW....Pawt 1

Hiya all,

Last weekend dad dad, mum and I went to Middle Beach in the PKW (Peep Kennel on Wheels). We were a bit nervous about the weather forecast ..... it was due to be VERY COLD, and VERY RAINY.... but we went anyway. Dad dad's cousin "Win" has a beach shack at Middle Beach and he was hosting a family "do" on the Sunday..... so lots of peeps were gonna come down just for the day on Sunday.

Oh - and did I say.... the Middle Beach Caravan Pawk is right next door to Win's shack!!! How handy!

Right - we are here - let the adventures BEGIN. You can start by puttin' somethin' in my little pink bowl ma!!!

The weather was too shoddy for us to build the awning and annex.... so the PKW is all nekkid!!

First things first..... off to walk the nature trail and board walk.

Nice little bridge.

Great smells to be schniffed!

Very good smells indeed!

Reached the end of the walk..... with some nice water views

The view the other way

Here is us going to visit Win's beach shack - I'm about to go down the driveway

The shack is yellow and at the back of the photo - there is a lovely back deck which overlooks the water - but you can't see it from this side.

Settling in for our first night's sleeps. It's chilly you know. I've got an idea about that blankie....

Yup - I'm ALL GOOD for sleeps now!!

The first night it rained and rained and was VERY windy and gusty. We were VERY happy that the awning and annex were not up.... because the peeps reckon it would have been ripped off and flung away in all the bad weathers!!

We call this "extreme camping"..... but we are happy the PKW stood up to the test and kept us warm and dry! 

I need to send a shout out to my very good mate and furiend Frank the Tank from Wales, in the You-Kaay. He has been very much waiting to hear of my new PKW adventures.... and Frank ..... see - we have colds and rainy stuff here too!! Only not as cold....and no you do mate!

Stay tuned for Pawt 2!!


  1. It's cold here at night this week...frosty mornings. But no rain to speak of. Glad you were very toasty in your chalet. We thought you were sleeping on sand instead of a blanket...BOL! Great place to explore.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & roxy

    SHE's a Kathy Reichs fan, too.

  2. Glad you kept warm and cosy Rubie

  3. Glad you got to go on a pawsome walk and you were warm and dry when the rains came. Have a wonderful Wednesday Rubie.
    Best wishes Molly

  5. That does look like extreme camping! Glad you had a blankie to keep you warm. No blankets needed here - we have a cool mat to keep us from over-heating at night. We 're not used to it being this hot :-) woofs and licks from Magic xx

  6. We are glad you were able to stay warm at night, that is important. If you are cold and tired it makes for a bad next day. Can't wait to hear Pawt 2! Lee and Phod

  7. Rubie it looks like it is going to be another great adventure. I am settling in right now for part 2.

  8. Looks like a great place for some adventuring - even if it is cold

  16. Rubie...OMD! You have the PKW that Ma and Daddy-dog want to get one of these days. For now, we have to camp in a tent (which I don't mind but still...). What a lovely adventure you had! the scenery is beautiful. I hope it didn't get too cold.

  17. Rubie, it seems to me that you have just had the authentic Camping in Scotland experience. Except here the weather's like that in summer. Oh and you would have dense swarms of biting midges to contend with too.
    OK I'll concede we have no poisonous spiders here.
    Toodle pip!

  18. Brrr... What sort of heating has that PKW got?

    1. Hey Dougall - We were A-OK in the PKW. My mum is a little "soft" so when they ordered the PKW they put in a reverse cycle air-conditioning system. Mum is not great in the summer"heat" so she insisted that we have a way to cool off - and this trip - we all appreciated the warmth of the hot cycle!!
