PKW Hollingday (Port Vincent) Pawt 2 (Fish edition)

Thankyou for all your lovely comments - you feel like you are right with me on my Hollingday don't you!! Here's the second report for you:

Here is me helping uncie K with some early morning fishing. I'm checking his perimeter to make sure there is nothing nice and smelly he is missing.

Some mornings auntie B helped with the fishing.

This is sunrise ..... I know what you are thinking ..... my pawrents are usually being lazy and sleeping through all the sunrises. But mum says this is proof that they can be up early. After all... the pelicans and seagulls are already up and flying around!!

See what my clever aunt and uncie caught! And there were a couple more yellow fin whiting a little later too. If you think you are having a bad day ..... think about what happens to these fish next!!

After lunchtime that day - dad dad, mum and I were walking into town and we walked past the surf club and boat ramp.

We noticed this little boat (whose peeps and beagle are staying in our caravan park) up on the sand and both peeps were huffing and puffing trying to slide the boat lower into the water.

The boat was STUCKS my furiends. So mum, dad dad and I stopped and we helped huff and puff and push the boat in! Well - my furiend the beagle and I didn't do much pushing .... there are limitations you know! Don't you just LOVE his little yellow lifejacket??!!

Anywho the man (The Dutchman) and his wife ( a real nice lady) were very very grateful for all our help.

Whew - eventually we got that boat back in the water and the beagle got lifted in there by lifejacket handle on his back!! His little head is peeking out (look at his mum's left arm area). We waved them off!

There they go...... Happy Fishing!!!!

Later on that afternoon - the Dutchman (and wife and beagle) came back and see that wire bucket he is holding? .... It contains freshly cooked blue swimmer crabs. They turn red when cooked and he was going down to the shoreline to clean the gunk outa them.

Guess what the nice Dutchman brought us!!?? Yep he brought us some yummers crabs (cooked and cleaned) .... and .....

some fish (snook) fillets - all caught because my peeps helped push their boat in the water!!! As you can see my peeps wasted NO TIME in arranging the FISH FEAST that very night. Mum fried up the snook in butter and oil ....

And, auntie B fried her fish (salmon, yellow fin and Tommy ruffs) too. Dad dad made potato cakes on the BBQ and mum tossed a mixed french salad.

Can you see me trying to bust in on the FISH action!! Uncie K was trying to sit down but I had other ideas!!! He he!

My peeps thought they were "King of the Castle" my furiends. Eating fresh caught fish while over looking the ocean. "Heaven" they said. And I can confirm ...... the fish was yummers indeed!! (*winks*)

Later on in our stay .... auntie B caught this squid off the town jetty. It's very black because it hasn't squirted out all it's black ink yet. That happened after our photo.

Here I am in the van doorway - practising my "High Fives" with my mum ..... I really like doing this. Mum thinks it's time to trim my nails when she saw this picture! 

To finish off my "Fish Edition" post ..... here is a picture of our Fish and Chips dinner another night which we ate at the Town Gazebo overlooking the swimming bay. (I will be swimming here later - post to come!!)

And of course - here I am doing my QA on the fish (after mum picked off the batter of course!) She looks after my figure!!

So stay tuned my furiends..... more action packed Holliday reports to come!!


  1. Fantastic surprise for your pawrents as a thank you for the boat pushing. We had fish and chips last night, but alas it was just from the fish shop and we're so far inland that they were probably frozen. Not fresh like yours.

    XXXOOO Bella & Roxy

  2. We always love you hollingday posts. Yes we do feel we were right there with you for a few minutes this morning.
    Toodle pip!

  3. Looks like a swell time was had Rubie and we hope you all had a lovely time. Fish n chips??? Yummy that has us drooling. Have a serene Sunday and let us all have some big easy today.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. It usually pays to be nice. The people with the boat must have had a good fishing trip after you helped free their boat.

  5. OH how NICE of the Boat and Beagle peeps to have sent you all those DELICIOUS Crabs. That must have REALLY been a WONDERFUL DELICIOUS Dinner fur SURE. OMD the Squid... that is so COOL... Is that the type of Squid that Peeps used to collect the Ink from to print News Papers??
    You did a super HIGH FIVE with your mom... is that what you use fur a Secret Code to allow her INTO YOUR PKW?
    We are LOVING your Vacation Series... hope you have MANY more installments fur us.

  6. sigh - fish and chips in wrapped up paper - I sooooooo miss that - you can't buy fish and chips like that here in the USA or and potato fritters - double sigh. Great pics and so nice of the dutchman to share - see - you do something nice and something nice happens in return

  7. Very kind of you to boat push. We don't eat fish in this house as many has allergy, but it looks so good!

  8. GREAT DAWG!! was a fish feast indeed! I would love to get in on that action. Ma and Daddy-dog never catch fish when we are out adventuring. I sure wish they would because fresh fish is delish! You are one lucky pup!
    Happy Monday,

  12. Oh My Pugness Rubie-Roo your Port Vincent PKW adventure is looking incredible, I love Pawt 1 seeing you with all the space to run around and it looks like so much fun, Pawt 2 is great, check out all of those fish, the crabs with lemon chunks looks wonderful, did you get to eat any more of the fishies or did you roll in any fish and smell good??
    You always take such wonderful photos of your adventures, it is really nice to see you having fun! The photo of the boat stuck with the peeps and beagle in his life jacket was great!
    I cant believe that your Auntie B caught that big black squid, shame that you didn't get a photo of the squid squirting the ink - did any of it go on anyone??
    It looks like a really good Holiday so far, I love your PKW holidays, I really want MY Mum to get a PKW too because your adventures are so wonderful, it is true it really does feel like I'm right there with you! Have fun!
    Love and licks from your furiend Frank xxxxxxx
