PKW Hollingday (Port Vincent) Pawt 4 - "Road Trip!"

Morning tickles and snuggles with dad dad in the PKW. He tells me that today - uncie K and auntie B are coming in our car - we are going on a ROAD TRIP!

Driving out of our spot - we will be back later caravan park!

Mum wanted to go further down the York Peninsula and check out a coastal homestead that allows peeps to camp along the coast. Uncie K wanted to see it too so he can assess if it's good for fishing.

First stop for coffee was a little town called "Yorktown" and this is where we stopped - here I am checking the mural and looking at the sheeps and birdies.

We have reached the Homestead that is just out of Marion Bay - and we walked round to see the coastal campsites.

The first site contained a "Pod" - which is like a fully self contained box for peeps. This one overlooked:

This beach - but it was a steep winding path down the cliff to get to the beach. I was keen to go - but the peeps - not so much!

The next set of bush camps had this board walk down to the beach. We went down to check it out.

This is the beach - supposed to be good fishing here!

This is the track down from other campsites ... also really steep but very pretty.

This is looking to the left - we liked the look of this big rock pool!

The peeps liked the camp sites but the tracks down to the beach were too long and steep for good access or fishing. So they decided this homestead was not going on our camping calendar.

Anywho - we started getting hungry so we went to Marion Bay for a hamburger overlooking the jetty. Mum didn't get a photo of that though. I got big tastes of hamburger!! YUM!

Back to Yorktown - we found a nice pawk to have some photos taken.

Hey look in this town the rocks can look like CLOWNS .....


Even though this SERPENT was much bigger than ME .... I was very brave and not skeered at all!!

Meet this nice doggie "Ruby". She has a great name don't you think!? This lady in black is a Doggie Behaviour Instructor and was helping Ruby with some stuff. In particular, Ruby has a "issue" with meeting new doggies nicely. So I helped. We got along great. I showed Ruby that if you sit nice and calm (and for a few minutes without jumping up) for the instructor - you get a chicken treat!!!!!!!!!!!.

See here we both are showing our sitting calm behaviour for Ruby's mum. After a few minutes - that worked with chicken rewards too!! Woo Hooo! Now don't forget that skill Ruby!!

We said our goodbyes and got back in the car. Back to our campsite at Port Vincent to join our PKW.

That was a great day touring ..... and I was very good in the car. I even crawled into uncie K's lap and went to sleep!! For a non lap-dawg that was amazing they said. Uncie K used to be a farmer with a big sheeps property .... and he had doggies help him with the sheeps and stuff. So I think he is a bit of a dawg-whisperer!! I like him. This is his leg I'm sitting near.

So I hope you enjoyed the sights of our day out. Next Pawt will be the final hollingday post and I'll show you round the town of Port Vincent and introduce you to some of the dawg furiends I made here.

See you soon!!


  1. Fabulous place! SHE would have been too lazy to go down those paths, too. But it was beautiful. That pod looked very comfortable.

    We think waking up to tickles and cuddles is the BEST!

    XXXOOO Bella & Roxy

  2. Looks like a great place Rubie and glad you had a wonderful day and best Uncle K's lap to sleep in on the way home. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  3. OMD RUBIE you met a RUBY and took on a Sea Serpent and saw a Panda and Clown Rock.
    We loved the mural and all the beautiful Beaches. It is too bad that it is not a good place fur fishing.
    THAT was an AMAZING Adventure. THANKS fur sharing it with us.

  4. Oh boy oh boy what an adventure. We would enjoy walking through those sand dunes but I think I would scream at the funny animals

  6. What a nice holiday, Rubie ^_^

  7. Wonderful travels, Rubie! Those beaches are gorgeous!! It's too bad they were very steep and not good for fishing. You get to go to some of the best places ever!
    *Cairn cuddles*

  8. Rubie we can see you had a lovely holiday and wow yes you were brave with that huge serpent. Have a marvellous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  9. You are so well travelled Rubie - and so brave. Swimming one day and braving serpents the next - we are very impressed. And then you visited Yorktown and I was thinking it would have been so good if you been visiting our York and we could have met you in the furs but my peeps say it is far too many miles away to travel here from Australia. Thanks for sharing your photos though - we feel as if we have been to all those places with you anyway :-) - woofs and licks rom Magic xx
