Hi again! Last week I went on a house boat. It was a trip on the Hawksberry River, which is only 45 minutes drive from Sydney. It was so cool.When I got off I felt like the ground was still rocking like when I was on the boat. I really enjoyed it.
I went with my grandma and grandpa. My grandma's name is Maggie and my
grandpa's name is Rob. My grandma had just come home from a trip to
Italy and she brought me back a lovely coloring book. It had funny
pictures and little stories (my grandma had to translate them for me as I can't read Italian). The water was just the right temperature so we
went swimming a lot. There were many beautiful sights and lots and lots
of sandstone. We went to a restaurant that had lots of different types
of French food. It also had a wonderful garden with lots of specimens
of different bugs. There were lots of cicada shells and a dead black
I found an unusual
black beetle that had strange bumps and markings on his back so I
named him Dreadlock. And I also found a Christmas beetle (Christmas
is very soon). When we had to hook our rope to the buoy it was scary
because the motor was still running and if we missed the buoy then we
would have crashed into the boat next to us.
We also watched an eagle that was trying to
catch its dinner.
