Our First International Post

Hello from Australia,

We landed in Sydney Monday night. We had to take a train then a ferry to get to Manly, a suburb of Sydney. In Manly we stayed with our uncle and cousins. Jason, Nikki, Caiden, John and Charlie ( who are twins).
One day on our trip my mum and I went on a hike from Dee Why to Manly on our way back we walked on the beach, we played with the waves and got wet and sandy.
Uncle Jason and Nikki took me to palm beach. It is called palm beach because it looks like a palm tree. We walked to the top of the hill and visited a light house. It was a very long walk.
We left Manly to go to Byron Bay it took an 11 hour train ride. We stayed at a place called the arts factory hostel. It used to be a piggery. A piggery is a place where they slaughter pigs. But it was sold and turned into a really cool place to stay and have dinner and listen to live music. Byron is a beach town, we woke up every morning and hit the beach, I loved playing in the waves.
We have seen many exotic and beautiful birds. We saw a kookaburra, they are very cute and have a big beak. In Byron we saw heaps of white ibis, they have long black beaks and eat off the rubbish. At the arts factory we saw loads of wild turkeys running around. Flying turkey's scared my mum a bit.

We still have 7 weeks left and loads more to explore. My mum and I are reading the blogs and catching up on everyone.

Lots of love

The 65 Storey Tree House

Easy Blog Photo
The 65 Storey Treehouse cover is green and it's my favourite colour. I like it because a terry clone was sinking in quick sand. But there is a problem...where is Mr Big Nose? I like the sixty five story tree house one million per cent. By Jed.

Me and my snowman.

Easy Blog Photo
When I was 3 years old I got a toy snowman at my friends house and yesterday I found it at the back of my wardrobe. I didn't know that it was there because for a long time I have been looking for it. I love Polly, that is her name, because she's cute and snuggly. When they bought the snowman, her name was already Polly but I still like it. The end. By Eloise

My Adventurous Grandparents

Grandparents number two:At Christmas my mum's parents are going to Christchurch to see my cousins Sam, Guy and James for a nice Christmas. 

I discovered that the word Christchurch has three "ch's" in it! Funny fact!
