Life isn't a business to be managed, it's a mystery to be lived!

Camping weekend 3-5 Aug

And so I’ve been camping. We were 7 + 2 kids. Also during Saturday we had a few visits from Yanni.

The spot we had was beautiful. And not only that, we had excellent weather as well! Lucky bastards? Yeah that’s us!

So we started the first day to go catch some bait for fishing later on. We waited for the low tide and passed across to suck up some yabbies. There were thousands and thousands of soldier crabs which you need to pass…were to put your feet though? Apparently they move when you put your foot down. Now I freaked out of course because they look like spiders and you can hear them. It sounds like a million tap dancing spiders! Brr…gross! Look closely…

I found one lost little soldier

Now it was time to find yabbies…I thought…well we still needed to pass the mud……..

Nobody told me you sink and get bogged! Don’t know why Bill didn’t sink, I mean he is heavier than me…

Now then. Sucking yabbies. You use a suction pump which you stick in holes were you can see they digged themselves into. And then you suck them up!

This is what they are

Now why did I eat one when it was still alive? Maybe because I was told they taste good. It actually did but I was happy with one appetizer.

We also caught some small fish to catch bigger fish later

image

Here and there we caught them stupid toad fish…they are poisonous and just useless…

image

Back to camp it was time for a refreshment

image

Cathy had made damper. It is an aboriginal bread which is similar to a big scone. You can put anything in it. Yummie as hell! I kept wanting more and more. Thank goodness that Jeff was making one the next day too! Wohoo!

Saturday morning I went for a nice walk. Jeff was already across with his canoe trying to catch a fish or two.

image

When I got back we had some breackie and most of us were fishing. Maca was telling us nice stories while Bill was waiting for that big fish he saw earlier swimming around.

image

Mick and his son Jack came over for a few hours to try their luck too

image

We did not catch one single fish all weekend! Ha!

The other day we had also put a few crab pots. I was delighted to finally see a mud crab and EAT it! They are delicious!

Yes it is alive in my hands 🙂

Just when we cooked the crabs Terry and Trish came to stay the night.

Sunday morning was yet another beautiful day but sadly enough we needed to pack our things and go
