Aussie Blog Episode 45 DIV. TRANS-LOCATION
NOTICE: TRANS-LOCATION means that the DIV is spread over two locations the locations will be listed next to the time frame/day.
DAY 1. Location: Coral Bay
We went snorkeling around the reef, although today it was much more pleasant because we got to wear wetsuits! (wetsuits make you warm in cold water if you didn’t know) But dad didn’t because apparently ‘he is tough’ so snorkeling was pretty cool. We got about 20 metres out from the beach when Meg freaked, so Mum took Meg all the way back to the beach while dad and I swam on. Dad was determined to find Ayers Rock, I complained and said
“But Dad, we’ve already been to Ayers rock all the way back in NT, how on Earth could it be here in Coral bay WA” (Yes, I know it rhymes).
“Well Sidney” explained Dad “Ayers rock is actually a Coral formation here in the reef”
“No it’s not, it’s a rock in NT” (I mean sacred monument) I said.
“Just you wait” said Dad.
So dad and a I swam all the way to ‘Ares rock’ which turns out to be just a big circular bit of coral (nothing like Uluru). Although, I must admit I was pretty excited to see it.
Later that day we went to the shark sanctuary and saw stingrays and sharks (of course). The black things in the water are sharks.
DAY 2. Location: Carnarvon
Today was pretty much driving the whole day apart from when we went to the shearers hall of fame. At the shearers hall of fame there was a lot of models and artifacts but there were also lots of vehicles in the center bit of the shed which Meg and I played on for half of the time. Then we set up camp and went to bed.
This is my train (with a supercharged engine)
This is meg’s fire truck (it’s almost twenty times bigger then her)
