Dread Fell Beastie
A tale of horror in which we take a break from spinning and knitting
We had heard that some dread creature was lurking in the Yarrangobilly Caves. It was said to be a Karst Critter, only found in limestone caves found in a few isolated areas of the east coast of Australia. Bravely we set forth to see if the rumours were true.....
We knew that beneath this tree:
lay the entrance to the cave the Dread Fell Beastie was rumoured to inhabit.
The path was guarded by smaller versions of the shape shifting fell beastie:
And this apparently monstrous one:
Bravely we entered the lair of the DFB, creeping through its gaping maw:
And stared upon what we think were its dripping horrid tonsils:
And its terrible innards:
We even saw stomach acid pooled and waiting for us to fall in. (No thanks!)
I think this was some bile but Nathan says it is the remains of copper pennies thrown in as a talisman against the DFB:
Some of the innards were pretty strange - little mashy things pointing out all over the place:
If anyone knows what it would use these for:
please let us know.
And we even saw some massive organ:
This was the final straw:
We fled the lair of the Dread Fell Beastie, racing off in the car up the dirt track with a clatter and bang. Nathan was so shaken by the experience that he did not want to recover in the thermal pool, instead sheltering in the men's toilets for half an hour. Lynne sat in the car and knitted a little bit of shawl.
