Mini Migration

This morning on my stoep there was a bewilderbeast migration across the plains. In miniature.20180304_070449[1].jpg

As time passed they grew in numbers. They trudged across the barren surface seeking water and new grazing. I decided to follow the migration.

Soon they found grazing and drink in the form of dog food and spilt cooldrink, Sambucca and my teenagers being their generous suppliers.

I flew low over the cooldrink waterhole.


In these waterholes lurk mini-crocodiles, ready to pounce and have them some mini-wildebeast beef. Probably. I’m guessing.

Maybe I should set up a webcam?


stoep – veranda; patio

Sambucca – fierce guard-Labrador; part greyhound for a brief minute once a day when I get home; Here seen on her way to the gallows (or a hairbrush and de-ticking)

    Hey I read a coded message in the apparent random pattern of mini wilderbeasts – my eyes are not too good but I think it said something about beware the idle days of March when you are cruising the plains of Botswana – there is danger lurking in the long grass so be wary and take enough alcohol to treat any serious wounds
