The fish have swum to Western Australia

We've spent most of the past two days hanging around Coffin Bay. Mum and Dad love it here! Yesterday we drove to Port Lincoln to find me some food. We found a place called Dempseys and I got a big bag of dry food. It's harder to keep wet food so Dad has been making me food, so I get chicken mince mixed with carrots (I'm like Mum; I can't eat raw carrot so Dad has to cook it in the mince for me to eat) and rice. I know, I'm spoilt.
Then we went to one of the beaches in Coffin Bay called Long Beach. Part of the beach is part of the Coffin Bay National Park so we could only go on a section of it. But it was good to run around.
We also walked part of the Oyster Walk, which is a 12 kilometre walk around Coffin Bay. It was such a nice walk because we got to walk right by the bay.
Dad has been a bit unlucky because he wanted to take a tour to see the oyster beds but no tours were available and then he wanted (and Mum encouraged him) to go on a fishing tour but none were available either!
We took a nice drive up to some beaches just a little north of Coffin Bay to watch Dad not catch any fish. We drove to Farm Beach but there were quite a few people there so we ended up at Galilpoli Beach via a very rocky road. The cove was used in the movie Gallipoli. It was quite a steep trek down and Mum had visions of Dad falling to his death but he was sturdy on his feet and he made it down fine.
Dad sunbaked and Mum hid from the sun and I ran around and got hot really quickly so me and Dad dug a hole for me and I sat in it to keep cool and then Dad played footy with me and I can mark the ball really well and then I had to drink lots of water because I was thirsty and then me and Dad walked to the other end of the cove so Dad could sit by the rocks and watch his rod gather seaweed and Mum didn't bother coming over because she knew there was no fish in the cove for Dad. Dad's excuse for not catching fish this time was that he didn't bring the right rod with him.
Later we drove around to Fisherman's Beach and then we stopped at a free-range pig farm. I stayed in the car while they looked at the pigs (they're not as cute as me).
