Welcome to Driving Mr Dusty, also known as Middle-Earth Monday, where we show you a cat’s eye view of Wellington, and New Zealand with video and some cool snapshots!
Today we spotlight Eastbourne suburb. About 4,200 people live here in all, but it gets busier with visitors, when the weather is fine.
Dusty Visits Eastbourne – Activities
Today we visit a Wellington suburb that is at the end of a long, winding seaside road, just check the video. It is also the starting point for many outdoor activities, including hiking adventures. Hiking is known as ‘tramping’ here, and there are some cool routes that start at the far end of Eastbourne, beyond the shops and houses.
The road does eventually stop, not long past our car park spot in the movie, and there is no tarmac road, but a host of advenure activities are based here. You can windsurf, and there is a 60 minute bike ride to the very tip of the peninsula. You can also get out in a kayak, and go snorkelling. So, you can see why on a fine day, we were pleased to get a parking spot!
Dusty Visits Eastbourne Then Gets Up to Mischief At Home!
It was a busy day, it tired me out and so Mum and Dad found giving me my fluids a lot easier. When I was worn out and laid in my carrier I didn’t protest! At the end of a busy cat day we were ALL tired, so, I waited until they both turned away before I tried to jump out of my wire carrier! I nearly tipped over so Mum watches me like a hawk now * sigh * The adventures of a senior cat eh!?
OK Guys! See on the next Driving Mr Dusty
