Cat Reviews and News, Dusty

Driving Mr Dusty Video Showcase Eastbourne

Welcome to Driving Mr Dusty

Our short series shows you a cat’s eye view of Wellington, New Zealand with a video and some cool snapshots!  

  • Dusty’s trip was a Finalist in the 2018 BlogPaws® Nose to Nose Awards.

Dusty was a senior who absolutely adored car rides. Thanks to him we discovered a little senior cat could have amazing adventures and make movies. We called them ‘Driving Mr Dusty’. You can also enjoy his trips to Petone Beach, and Lord of the Rings country – Rivendell.

Driving Mr Dusty’s Eastbourne Adventure

Today we spotlight Eastbourne a suburb of Wellington that looks over towards the capital from across the harbour. About 4,200 people live here in all, but it gets busy with visitors in summer and when the weather is fine.

Dusty Visits Eastbourne – Activities

Eastbourne is at the end of a long, winding seaside road that hugs the side of the harbour, just check the video for how close we get.

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. The area is still busy as 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 with gorgeous views, as you can see when you watch Dusty’s movie.

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 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 tripped and fell over so Mum watches me like a hawk now * sigh * The adventures of a senior cat eh!?
