These two boys thought they might try drowning this evening. We took them to Buffalo Creek for a walk and they thought falling into a deep section of it was a good idea, right by an escarpment too steep for them to get themselves out.
So I had to slide down and avoid falling in myself, scraping myself up on the way down, then yank them out one at a time by the scruff, trying not to think about crocodiles. Then when they clambered up the bank I had to pull myself up with reeds. At least my phone didn’t fall out of my pocket into the creek and nobody drowned or got eaten by a crocodile. Thanks boys, we won’t be coming back to this spot in future.
