Day 3 Part 5:




So Sprocky and I decided to chase the sable down to the other bit of water at the dam wall.

Actually, it wasn't a very fast chase, as Sprocky was a bit inebriated, IMO? -O-

The athletics track:

Spr: "Huuff puff! I can see it! Drat this thing is impeding me between my legs!"

RP: "Sometimes a long lens can be an impediment, you see... O** "

Spr: "Huff puff...why are you stopping?"

RP: "I want to touch the unit of Toko!" ^Q^ O/\ O\/











Image









Anyway, the sable was gone, and we ascended into the hide for a rest/wait! ;-)





Col. Schwarz: "Aha! Zey haf made der run for it! I thought it vould happen! Kamera two shows ze fat vun rolling around in ze bed of an occupied unit! Zis ist ze end for him!"

M: "That animal they were chasing...what colour is it?"

Col. Schwarz: "Black und vhite... :-? "

M: "Stand down..this is election year! 0- "

Col. Schwarz: " O/ 0= (0!) "






Here is the view:

We had a lovely evening in that hide, meeting an Italian regular, ironically, who shared all sentiments regarding commercialisation and what not! X#X

It was a pity we didn't have AW business cards between the two of us, for some reason...but a good friend made! \O

We saw squat, but it is a very nice hide, which I think was washed away by the floods... :-(

Not quite sure yet what that tells me about your state of mind. 0*\

Well, my guess is that Toko has stayed there before. 0()

Day 3: Evening:



The sun was finally releasing us from its grip...a grand gesture of farewell...







Image






Col. Schwarz: "Vell dun, sun! Zey vill be departink manyane! ^Q^ O/\ O\/ X#X ^Q^ "

Sun: "A pleasure, Colonel! It is a bit ironic that I've had to power their appliances, though..."

Col. Schwarz: "A mere nothink...Just to get zem aus! Herr Bombed hast broken mein nerve... :-( 0: O/ "




So it was Dwarf and Sprocky's turn to cook that night...and quite a scrumptuous feast! I can't remember, but I think they made wors and ice? :-?



And then an animal appeared at the fence! :shock:






Image






GB: "Eeek! Tokoloshe!"

DW: "This ice are melting on this grid... :-? "

Mam: "Eeek! Tokoloshe!"

Frew: "Will someone let me out of the boot...I've locked myself in again!"

Spr: "Be calm...it's only a bushpig..."




Then we had a sublime last night, Sprocks blew up his matress in the corner of my master bedroom, and all ended well until the next morning! :-)
