Yeah we realise things are changing in regards to taking the four leggeds with. Probably thanks to the grey nomads. And there are heaps of them out and about at present. We found most of the free camp spots were totally taken when we were touring about a month ago. We found it better to pay a few dollars to get into a less crowded spot. But it's great to be able to have our four legged friends touring along with us.

:laugh: :laugh: They are so gorgeous - such an unlikely pair.  You must have a million smiles and laughs a day just looking at their beautiful, eager and intelligent faces, loving being with their dad.

Catch up time. We are in Townsville now nothing much of interest and small cramped spot in crammed caravan park so we are making a run for Cairns tomorrow some pics from here and Mackay.

In Cairns now and its a tad warm 31 degrees today. A new challenge presented itself in my quest to find good spot for dog walks. 1dfaa8db4add8642aa789326f21be615.jpg54c3df15c44d58bfe60b93072595c4c1.jpgab14d9cf73d692aa4e4009b9b86d97be.jpg

Those dogs have the best life! I love how Jonah always secures the most comfy spot he can!

 

And I'm loving all your pics. I travelled around Australia visiting a lot of the same places as you have over time (but living in a tent) many moons ago so the pics bring back fond memories. I had to leave my OES at home back then as you could hardly take your dog anywhere. You take amazing photos!

Mum often travels with her dachshund. Last year, mum, husband & said sausage were in one camper, a dogless couple were in another. Dogless couple were actually denied access to a camp ground in WA because they were dog free. 

Of course mum & co weren't allowed in the other place & they didn't want to be split up - so it was a bit of a dilemma. 

 

 

Back on topic: loving the updates CT, they're awesome!

Yes, often. Sometimes it's fun to say he is a Chinese eating dog I am fattening up. :)

I was just looking at his tail and wondering if they have special fat tail recipes.  Yum yum

 

i love the look of your camping set up, it looks like you're very well organised and equipped. Have a great time.

I used to walk my whippets and ride my mare along that beach!  I swam my mare and the whippets across the river at the end. Very stupid idea, and we were all lucky not to drown.

The colours are just amazing.  Some of the green is almost iridescent.  

 

Love the top of Australia photo.  You are creating quite a story, Canisbellum.
