Moo river (Photo Challenge: Dreamy)

Cows drinking at Yass River, 'Cliftonwood', Yass, New South Wales, Australia

Unexpected guests for tea!

On Sunday we took some friends down to a favourite spot on Yass River. We sat back in camping chairs circled round the esky*, sipped coffee and ginger beer, and talked fishing and other things.

It was a lazy afternoon to sit in the shade and chew the fat*. Some young boys were swimming in the river and swinging from the tree rope to crash into the water. 

Two black ducks waddled up the bank to inspect our campsite and bathe in a puddle. We could hear many peeping ducklings but they didn’t brave the steep bank.

As the afternoon got late we walked around the park to view the Clydesdale horses, on ‘Cliftonwood’ property, on the other side of the river.

Back at our ‘camp’, we found a great herd of black poll cows had meandered down to the water’s edge across the river.

What a dreamy way to while away a Sunday afternoon!  ♦
