Driving to mum

Every time we go over to MiL, aka Tilley’s favourite person. At about half a mile away from the door we go thru a roundabout. Which is the starting point, for this little serenade.

Are you up?

Was moaning a bit when our dog woke me up at 4:40am for a nature call. Couldn’t really get angry with her, as I got to hear and see this, even though my bed was calling.

Tilley playing with Ruby

Play fighting

Our mutt playing with Ruby the rescue dog, yes that is them making these sounds, went on for hours. Tilley is the one making the high pitch squeal, that is just what she does when excited. I have to tell other dog owners that it is ok. When she is playing, no contact, no biting – nothing – and she squeals like someone stepped on her.

Sweetdreams

I have never had a dog that dreams as much at Tilley does. Each evening at least 2-3 times and in the night I often get woken up either by her barking or running paws. She often does this rolling sound, wonder what she is dreaming to make this sound.

Noisy wake up call

We were cycling the Queen Charlotte trail in NZ. Every morning we got woken up to this. Kicked off at about 3:30am and by 4:15am it was at a fever pitch, with no chance of falling back asleep. Some of them sounded like a mobile phone’s ring tone. At about 6am the raucous erm dawn chorus died down and we could have a bit of snooze, until it was our turn to get up.

The sharp eared ones among you, will hear the “tell tell” sound of Hilleberg vs Exped, at the end of this clip 🙂

Bat out of hell

<WARNING> This soundscape does have a loud, sharp, piercing sound in it, so please turn your volume down before playing.

This was a bit of surreal experience. This random showground, where we were allowed to camp, cheaply, on any bit of grass we could find among parking lots and exhibitions halls. While we were pitching our tent and cooking our dinner, a graduations come prom party started in one of the halls. Us tired, dirty and in our cycling gear with camp stove going vs them dressed to the hilt in their better than Sunday best. We crawled into bed and just about heard the revelers leave – as we dosed off in to dreamyland – not a late one as they all got driven there by their parents.

We then were woken up by this sound in the dark.

A bat flying around and I guess a bird taking part in the fun. As I was waking up I did thing is this the Blair Witch 🙂
