Day 7 Mon 28 Feb 11 Coffs Harbour

Harbour City Holiday Park

sunny 38 °C

At 8am Jim took the Jeep to Bellbowrie Chrysler dealership for a diagnostic to find out why the engine warning light has been going on intermittently, especially when towing, and affecting performance in higher revs.
The boys and I went for a Walk along the Showground trail which follows along the creek and mangroves. Dew on the grass and an undulating cloud of moths rise out of the long grass as the dogs disturb them with their sniffing off the dirt walking track. The walking track is sign posted at strategic points and wooden walkways lead off the Showgrounds onto a cycleway following the mangroves and through the pine trees. In amongst the pines, we passed under 3 yellow tailed black cockatoos squawking in the trees above, and me without my camera! The track opens up into the edge of suburbia. Then the path continued to a lovely little tucked away jetty, picnic area and boat ramp. It finished a little further up where the wooden bridge over mangroves was blocked where the cycleway is under improvement. We turned around and In all it took 45mins.
With Jim back we headed across the road for shopping at the Disposal Store and Camping shop - Jimmi got flippers for $5.
Back for a lite snack and a nap. Driver picks up Jim to get back the Jeep from the dealership with a clean bill of health saying the codes that were setting off the engine warning light had to do with a lack of voltage and then noted lots of accessories running off the battery (e.g. Flood lights, cb radio, trailer plug, car alarm, electric brakes). They cleared the log, paased the codes as being "no longer an issue" and said everything was fine to go and it shouldn't happen again. YIPPEE
Shopping in town for better storage containers for the van, yummy gluten free treats and back to the shopping centre for small items. Jim brought me lovely white and purple bohemian tank top whilst the boys and I walked. Thoughtful man.
Dinner is chops and mash. A little thunder, lightning and some drizzle but didn't last long and the evening has a soft slightly cool breeze for a humid night. It was worth dining outside and sitting out until 11pm.

Love the way you set the scene Tina . . .really felt like I was there and got a tingle down my spine as the clouds of moths were hurried into flight as the boys bounded by. Glad to hear that no huge problems with the car were discovered. Wart is the true romantic buying his girl some pressies. Hmmmmmmm Now chops and mash is one of my favourite dishes and sitting outside with mother nature putting on a show is the perfect setting for eating it . . .getter closer to us now :)
