In 2017 I tried a new activity for the first time. When holidaying at Monkey Mia in Western Australia I gave stand up paddle boarding a go, why wouldn’t you when the water is home to pods of dolphins! It was an activity I liked the look of and thought I would be able to do and what better time to give it a go than on holidays somewhere where no-one knows you and it wouldn’t matter if you made a complete fool of yourself in the process.
Most of our holidays over the years have involved taking the dog too. In fact a lot of times it’s the deciding factor in where to go for holidays. Is it dog friendly? Can you have a fire? Is it close to the water? Does it have a view? Walking distance to town / food / pub? All of those questions come in to play when we are looking for the next destination, but the dog one is a biggie, after all they are part of the family. Of course they have to be on leash at all times in caravan parks and not making a nuisance of themselves and ALWAYS clean up after them.
Our dogs have all been kelpies, we’ve found them to be extremely intelligent and well behaved, they’ve rarely barked, loved the great outdoors and a run on the beach and are absolutely no problem on holidays. They are also very friendly with other dogs, adults and children and have great personalities.
