Fun and games with Joss the cow – woke us up about 6.30am banging around the van. She then went over and entered the annex of another couple of Bush Camp Hosts who had just arrived. They have an open annex that they can’t zip up, so Joss is very happy about this and went promptly over to stand under it. She also went into John’s and did a couple of poos to surprise him when he woke up, how sweet of her. She is annoying but it makes me laugh. So glad we have a zip up annex. She had her nose pressed up to the fly screen just looking in at the annex longingly. She is obsessed. Joss is scared of the horses so Jen can ride the horse and round her up and she runs back to the enclosure. Otherwise she totally ignores you no matter what you do to try to get her to move.
Col and I went out to the tip to do a rubbish run and came across a big Goanna! It was very impressive.
We decided to go on one of the walks on the property and settled on the Kangaroo walk that leads up to a big sand dune where it is good to sit and watch the sunset from. The plan is to go up there later in the evening for some drinks and nibbles and to watch the sunset. We saw many animal tracks while we were walking, including this Goanna track. At first I thought it was a snake, but when you look closely you can see the foot prints next to the dragging tail mark. It had walked a very long way!
We thought this little melon was pretty cute, it is the only one we have seen on the property so far. Fighting for it’s survival!
We met Joyce and James (the new Bush Camp Hosts to arrive) and Denver, Jen and Indya on the big dune at sunset for some drinks and nibbles. It was a great evening and we talked until it was dark.
Joss escaped her enclosure again this evening, along with the horses. Jen was driving the ute trying to get her to go back to the enclosure but it did not go well, Joss just kept running away. Col got involved too and tried hard to assert his authority but Joss couldn’t care less. Eventually after much drama, Indya managed to entice the cow back home with food and they quickly locked the gate. They decided to leave the horses out until the morning as they wouldn’t bother anyone (unlike Joss).
