McIntyre Beach Pt 2

I had made pizza dough to take with us plus all the fixings to make Moroccan Lamb pizza and a few other variations...
I portioned the dough out...

 I left it to proof on the shelf.  What a view out the front window!
Lamb spiced with paprika, cumin and coriander...

The first pizza was spread with tzatziki dip and topped with lamb strips, pumpkin, roasted capsicum, red onion, cherry tomatoes and mango and a shaving of parmesan cheese...
Someone nibbled it before I could take a picture!  I crumbled fetta over it after it was cooked...
The second one was spread with barbecue sauce with lamb, tomatoes, onion and mango...
Watching bush TV...
With the storm coming in, we were inundated with little bugs or flies and a few mosquitoes.  We sprayed and this was the result!  Yuck!
Time for a port and a coffee then off to bed.  We were awoken at 3.05am to gale fore winds battering our camper.  We got up and had to let down one awing that was on the wind side and just hoped the other one stood up to the winds.  The wind just kept up until daylight.  It made packing up very hard.
We had a nice breakfast, snugged up in the camper but then we had to brave the strong winds and get Pearl packed up.  Typical - it rained 10 minutes before we were ready to flip her over and pack her down!  Grrr!  We finally got packed and on our way by 10am but it was still so windy.
We got out of McIntyre's beach then faced the small hurdle of a large sandhill that we had to go up...
Ruby by herself has no trouble with this hill but towing a camper is entirely different.  Anyway, she made it up without stopping so we were very pleased.  Gus is thrilled with how the Ultimate Xplor tows along in the sand.  I do have video of us going up the hill so I will try and get it loaded up...
We made our way home and then unpacked Pearl later in the afternoon to dry out the canvas.  A quick vacuum and she's ready to roll again.  Not sure where our next adventure is to...

Cheers - Joolz xx

  1. I so love your camping stories. Every time we have gone camping it has been a disaster....but I still like the concept.
