This is the house we were looking after. Only 2 houses from the beach.
We also looked after Pippa, a Kelpie and Tess the cat. Pippa was very well trained, able to be walked without a lead, come when called. The beach was open to dogs being walked offlead, with some restrictions on times with seasonal changes. There was a Life Saving Club, note not "surf life saving club", as there was no surf, unless extreme weather conditions prevailed. There were a number of Life Saving Clubs in the area, only saw one that was called a Surf Life Saving Club.
Kept reasonably fit with walking Pippa about 6 Km per day, along the beach, sometimes in soft sand due to high tide.
