Cruising on the Murray

Lynettea may have been too busy to let me post on my blog, but she wasn't too busy to leave me here all day and go on a cruise on the Murray River at Mannum.
She showed me her pictures that she took. This one looks nice and cool and there are some houseboats on the bank. I don't know if any cats live in them. Lynettea said she didn't see any, but she is not as observant as I am.
She said the river is very low and they had to walk on a special plank down about two metres to get on the boat. Apparently there isn't much water because other people upstream have it and don't want to let it go downstream. How mean are they! Because the swampy edges have dried out there are hardly any birds around the river at that place now.

I will have to hope it rains, although I am not personally keen on rain. I guess I can stay indoors if it rains one day or two. Lynettea says 'Don't be silly Diamond, the world doesn't run to your order.' Well I was only trying to be helpful! I like other beings to have a fair go, even if they are birds.

I don't like the idea of all that water, but my mom says that looks like a beautiful place!

Staying inside and napping sounds like a plan.
Be well Diamond!

That looks like a lovely place. I am sorry that the water level is so low.

I think I would enjoy living on a house boat. If I never had to swim!

Diamond, the Murray looks pretty low there. Rain would have been nice, but we hope you've been okay through the record heatwave that you over the last few weeks. We've had some hot days too, and we reckon that wasn't much fun, so we're sending sympathetic purrs to you. Stay cool and drink plenty,

Purrs

I am home alone at the moment (well not really there is a cat sitter) that's because my humans are currently at Tokyo airport waiting to fly to Cairns. They are very excited and can't wait to see all their family again. FAZ

So sorry to all the kitties who have sent me messages. I hope to be updating my blog soon. Lynettea has been very busy setting up a journal of writings from her writers group and won't let me get a paw to the keyboard. I made her let me put this on, as I feel so guilty. I will think up a good method of punishing her.
