WOW Meeting

SATURDAY 18 TH OCTOBER 2014 @ 12 30 for lunch.

THE NEXT WOW is to be HELD @ Angela Cooney's home Elvina Bay North Wharf  - house on the right as you disembark
Hi everyone

Spring has sprung and 3 x months has flown by and Angela who is a zoologist has very kindly offered her home and her interest zoologly. Living in the semi wild as we do life is not the same as in the suburbs as we live at a very close proximity with nature and at times it can drive us mad but unless we humans learn to live with the animals , the plants and the elements, we will devour our very planet that sustains us all.

Angela and her colleague  are going to demonstrate how to live with and handle snakes, particularly  the python which is harmless, and we all have our snake stories.

So come with food / wine and  curiosity.

Syringe and Cargo Beach.

Last Sunday evening at Cargo beach, a group met to party. The results I cleaned up today. The emptied contents of the drum used for a fire, spilled onto the beach. Amongst the charcoal where shards of at least 4 bottles, splintered  and dispersed over the sand. In the water were 3 'freshly' thrown empty whiskey and beer bottles. Ten minutes into my  scavenging for glass, I found a syringe, complete with its extended unsheathed needle. This all wasn't neatly tucked away in a little walked on section of the beach, it was slap bang in the centre of the beach,  two steps away from the picnic table and swings.

Whilst I don't mind the colourful mess of kayaks, this is just  supreme willful selfishness. I hope those who meant just to have a good time, think about it and self regulate their behaviour before this island becomes a bureaucratic nightmare in order to protect, mainly children, from stupidity such as this.

Dogs !

To the dog owners on the island who obviously know NOTHING about dogs

The poo fairy does not exist, Scotland island is NOT an unleashed dog area, some dogs DO nip & bite even when not provoked

1. There is NO DOG POO FAIRY  to pick up your dogs poo even though you obviously believe in them when you selfishly let them roam the island UNLEASHED to poo everywhere.

2. When you say "OH he won't bite, he's only excited !" when your unleashed dog comes sniffing/jumping up near my 3 year old son .....I DON'T CARE!  MY SON  IS SCARED OF DOGS - I don't want your dog sniffing or jumping up around my children or myself - End of Story!

My family and I recently had our evening ruined down at Carols beach when 3 unleashed dogs - a white lab., brown & white spaniel & small brown & black dog came down at the same time. The Lab started running down the stairs when he saw my son (which obviously sent me in a tiff) so whilst I was chasing him off the small brown dog pooed on the beach RIGHT NEXT TO where my baby was playing. NOT ONE OWNER TO BE SEEN!!!!

The rules for dogs on the island are the same as on the main land - This is not a unleashed dog island, I don't want your dogs pooing in my garden, pooing on the road or pooing on the beach, I don't want your dogs in my garden, attacking my compost bins, or scaring my children - If you can't take responsibility for your dogs -
