Day 179-188 Kalbarri to Drummond Cove to Perth

We've nearly finished this leg of the trip!

Mum and Dad had booked a caravan park for Easter a little while back (campsites that allow pets were hard to find at Easter) so they came and picked me up from the kennels and we headed south to Drummond Cove.

Mum and Dad said the Murchison Caravan Park at Kalbarri was really good. It was right in the town and the campsites were very big and quite a lot of the sites had trees so you felt like you weren't too close to the next site. Some of the sites faced the beach and quite a lot of the sites had picnic tables. They gave it 4 paws out of 5 paws.

I enjoyed my stay at Arthur Road Kennels. There was space for me to run around and I did get to go for a walk every day. But at the end of the day I did miss Dad (yes I meant to leave out Mum's name) so I was happy to leave.

We were originally going to stay at Drummond Cove for 5 days but Mum and Dad got a house-sitting job in Perth so we ended up staying for 2 days instead. In those 2 days we were pretty lazy and didn't really do much. We went to the beach a couple of times which was about a 15 minute walk from the campsite and of course we watched the sunset because that's what humans seem to love doing!

We had to be at the house sitting job by 2pm on Saturday and as it was a 5 hour trip back to Perth we headed off early. After a couple of hours we stopped for a pee and a play at Badgingarra. Dad filled up with petrol and because we had left so early Mum was ready for her second breakfast so Dad bought them some toasted sandwiches and coffee which Dad said was a total rip off because the coffees were $4.50 each and they were out of a machine. He is catching Mum's complaining disease.

We arrived at the house sit to be greeted by another dog. Her name is Molly and she is a Lagotto. Mum keeps cuddling Molly and saying 'You don't look real, you're so cute, you're a little soft toy'. Obviously Molly is now her favourite but I don't care because Dad has ALWAYS been my favourite.

Do I have to play with her?

So Mum and Dad are not sure what they are up to next. Dad has applied for a few jobs and has registered with some agencies but it is taking longer than expected to find a job. One agency person told him that WA stands for Wait Awhile. Dad couldn't agree more.

So I'll have to wait for the oldies to decide what to do before I can finish this part of the blog! They are useless.
