After breakfast at the house, Crusties went into Nambucca with their mini poodle for breakfast. We decided to check out the off road tracks to find beach from Highland Park. Chose a trail (311.2) that had a more than a 45deg angle entry & exit for the narrow creek crossing. We only made half way up the exit, then had to reverse the crossing and in the backing up, lost a mud flap. Another track led us to a nice lookout spot above the beach where the boys got a run and Tank found wombat poo - his favourite snack - yuck! Jim just laughs and I avoid those first coule of doggie kisses.
We had to drive into Nambucca to get to beach with car. Dogs had a great run on the beach. jimmi stood on rocks and called the boys to him but only Tank made it across. Levi kept stepping off the sand shelf and dunking himself till he gave up.
The Crusty's did some puppy sitting so we could go into Coffs Harbour for luch at the Hogs Breath cafe. We got to check out the two dog friendly caravan parks for our Sunday move into Coffs Harbour so the Jeep could go in for diagnostic to find out about the engine warning light.
Jimmi BBQ'd the frozen prawns purchased the night before (I suggested picking them up in Urunga, a tiny town halfway to the house because it was open and maybe by the time we got back to Nambucca the fishmongers might be closed but Jim was sure that Nambucca would have places open - nope!) and Misch made a giant salad for dinner - not quite a success, the prawns BBQ'd in the shells were hard to peel and a bit dry. Bummer. Next time if we have to buy frozen prawns I'll know to peel them before cooking.
