On Thursday, July 30 Cherie and I decided to
take our new camper trailer for a test camp-out to Rest Point Caravan
Park (near Walpole, that is).
We hooked it up to the Harley and off
we went. The trailer towed like a dream and we had it set up within six
after arrival. Cherie had prepared some great nibbles and I was ready
for a relaxing
beer or two.
Within minutes we were surrounded by 10 magpies
and watching from
various high branches were about seven kookaburras. If you think a
kookaburra can’t dive bomb between a fork and a plate 5
inches apart, think again.
Not only did they steal my last bit of
expensive cheese and Cherie’s
piece of steak from off her fork, but also in the morning one decided
Cherie’s sausages as well (lucky it wasn’t yours Gary - Bob) and waited
for the right moment and at the blink of an eye, gone! Bastards!
Apart from that, great camp-out.
