OMD! We've just noticed....

this is our 1500th post!  Who-dda thought.

Yesterday, we finally got to actually go down to the river!
(We've been confined to the track above for months!)

There was loads of stuff left behind by the receding water
to explore.
Bella raced ahead to stand in the water in hopes
someone would throw her rocks.

 We were surprised to find SAND everywhere.
 We're not sure where it came from...

but we love it!

Otto at Rottover asked us about a Dummy Spit
when we were explaining about a nosy person
being a Sticky Beak.
A Dummy Spit...or spitting the dummy...
A dummy being the Oz term for a baby's
pacifier or binky,
means having a temper tantrum
as demonstrated by Dui who is refrained from
harassing a man who is walking passed.

  10. Congratulations on 1500 posts! Reilly and Denny lost lots of sand in their recent storm. Now we know where it went!

  11. happy 1500!!! maybe it's the sand howard carpendale had in his shoes as he came back from hawaii? I wrote the dummy spit in my black book, it's good to know some special words when I have to deal with humans :o)

  12. Congrats, that is a lot of posts!
    Ooo, your own beach, how great is that.
    Dui and Cricket have a lot in common, she also harasses people on our walks. Mum lives in fear of her tripping someone up by winding herself around their legs and them falling over and suing her!
