At the Beach

It’s such a hot day today! My friends and I have decided to go to the beach to cool off, since none of us have a pool and the public pools are going to be very busy. We live near the coast, so the beach isn’t far, but we decided to take a car anyway because it’s easier than multiple. It is also easier for my friends who don’t have their licences.

I had to call a mechanic! Deception bay isn’t far at all, but my car broke down on the way there. It was still able to drive, however, the air conditioner stopped working, and since it was such a hot day we decided we needed to get it fixed before driving home. We didn’t want to leave the beach either, since we had set out for the day and had already packed everything we needed. I wasn’t sure what I should do with my car, since I only had to use a mechanic during scheduled logbook services.

My friend suggested I find a mechanic offering a mobile car aircon regas near me, since that way they can come to us, and they are also not very far away from us so that can come quickly. We didn’t have to wait long for the mechanic to arrive. Most of my friends went down to the water while I waited by my car, but one of my friends stayed to keep me company, which was really nice.

The mechanic told us that there was something wrong with the refrigerant and it needed to be replaced, but that it was ultimately very fast and easy to do. I was only half-listening, since he used a lot of jargon and I couldn’t really understand what he was saying. I don’t know much about cars. I think my friend understood most of it though, and I’m going to get her to explain it all to me when we’re in the water.
