Since leaving Melbourne we have almost driven through 2 states. After we left Melbourne we started driving on the Great Ocean Road. We went to the Otway Light House. We climbed the lighthouse and walked around the balcony. After the lighthouse we went to a small town called Lavers Hill. We got to see a sub-tropical rainforest from the ground and the canopy. I liked it because it was very dark green,had lots of hollow trunks and of green ferns.
After Lavers Hill we drove past the 12 Apostles. We took a picture of the 12 Apostles with me and our trip mascot “Hedwig”.
Our next stop was Warrnambool. At Warrnambool there was a really cool BMX track and an excellent historical village called “Flagstaff Hill”.
When we got to Adelaide we booked into the Caravan Park and the man showed us our site in a golf buggy. After our caravan was set up we went to my dad’s friends house called Eric and Michelle. We had dinner at Eric’s house every night that we were there.
Next we went to Port Augusta. It was 45 degrees, luckily the site a pool. The next day we drove to Port Lincoln. When Sam and I were playing in the playground we met a boy called Harry. He became a very good friend. That night we went fishing down at the wharf.
The next day we drove to Coffin Bay. In Coffin Bay we walked on sand dunes and beaches.
Next we drove to Baird Bay. In the one day we were there we went swimming with sea-lions and dolphins. In the water with the sea-lions I put my foot down and the sea lion came up and sniffed it underwater. They were agile and fast. It was warmer swimming with the dolphins but they kept on swimming away.
Bye from James.
