Day 12 : The house boat and police ticket

We drove to catch the ferry and Mark was speeding when the police followed us with his light flashing …. you know the rest ;)

Today we hired a house boat and went on the river!!
The house boat is not stylish from the outside, but inside it's good. There are 4 bedrooms and two floors. The top floor is an observation deck, with table and gas barbeque.

But then there was a disaster! We went on to a sand bank and the boat got stuck on the sand. We would have to wait for the next high tide to get off – 7:30 the next morning. In the night the tide went out and the boat sat touching the sand.

New words for the day
The boat was stuck: le bateau etait coincer
sand: sable
sand bank: banc de sable
high tide: maree haute
low tide: maree basse
Stylish = e'le'gant
the tide goes/comes in (the sea rises)
the tide goes/comes out (the sea falls)

Day 11: Animals and swim

Today we went walking beside the sea.

There are lots of people here because there are lots of whales and dolphins in the sea …

After the walk, we went swimming in the sea. The water was 20 degrees ….. it's very cool !!!

Day 10: Walk and Whales

Today we went walking and swimming in Blue Lake and drove to Brown Lake.

At Blue Lake we saw a brown snake, kookaburra and parakeets.
Mark and I went swimming in the lake.
In this lake there is maybe one or two crocodiles.
We walked for 2 hours 30 minutes and 6 km.

After the walk we went home and saw 3 whales.

This morning with the Nixon/Reynolds family we went to the beach and we saw lots of surfers!

And on the drive back home we saw a koala in a gum tree! :) It was high up in the tree sitting in a fork.

And for lunch I had a beautiful toastie sandwich (yum yum) ;) I made my sandwich with cheese and ham!!
