Day 16 : We leave house boat Mt Tamborine National Park ...

We went to Mount Tamborine in the Gold Coast Hinterland.
We went on the Skywalk (it's a walk in the top of the trees). The forest is a tropical rain forest.
Then we went to see glow worms. Glow worms make light and live in caves.
They are only found in Australia and New Zealand.

Day 13 : The big problem – resolved!

Today we could not get to the anchor, because the boat was still on the sand. So we tried to retrieve the anchor.
So, Mark and I went in the water to free the anchor
But we went in the water for nothing because it was too heavy. But we has succeeded with the boat as the tide came in. And at high tide, we got free of the sand.

After we went walking on the beach and in the forest to that Pacific Ocean! And Mark and I saw a baby wallaby and two adults.

new words for the day

Retrieve - recuperer
