When we got there we unpacked all our stuff, then we went to parade. After that we went inside to have supper. We had razon toast with coco on them. Then we played some games and then went to bed.
The next day we had sausage and cereal. After breakfast we went to parade. After that we played more games until lunch, I was gob smacked we had a sandwich. After that we did some experiments and obsticles. It was so much fun. Then we had dinner. We had pasta. Then went to bed.
The next day I was so excited. We were going to Fetherdale Wild Life Park. We saw tazmainan devils, Dingos, pekok, crocodiles, and eagles and much more. Then it was time to go home. I was sad because I made so many friends.
On the weekend I went to Ingleside for Environment camp.
First, I had a snack before I got ready for bed. While I was getting to bed I was woken up by my friend but I got back to sleep.
The next day I woke up for breakfast. Then I went to do some activities. The first activity I did was looking for fake animals up on the field. Then I went to learn about endangered animals. I also looked in a creek for lots of different species of bugs. Seaforth cubs even found a yabbie!
After that the next day I went to Feather Dale Wildlife Park. When I got there I had to get all the stamps on the passport. My favorite part was when I could pat the different animals.
Then before I went home I got the hairy Harry I made.
