Today we drove to Adelaide airport and got on the plane. I read my Harry Potter book on my mum's Kindle. Then we got off at Sydney airport. The plane ride took us two hours. After that we drove to my Gran's place to pick up Scruffy, she was really excited to see us. Soon, when we left, we got home. I was really happy to be home.

Day 8 – West Lakes, Henley Beach, Grange Beach

sunny 33 °C

Today we swum in the pool with Emily and her mum, it was really fun! Then we went swimming at Henley Beach and there were also lots and lots of fish, but this time I tried to catch them. Then we had nachos at a shop for lunch and it was really yummy. After that we got ready to go to Steve & Nikita’s wedding. When we were ready we got on a bus to go to Grange beach. Nikita looked beautiful in her wedding dress. During the wedding I carved a cuttlefish which said 'Well done'. Then we went back to the reception and had dinner with all their friends and we all got chocolates. I went to bed before it finished because I was tired.

Day 6 - Kingscote to Glenelg Beach

Penneshaw, Cape Jervis, Glenelg

sunny 30 °C

Today we drove to Penneshaw and then went to Frenchmans Rock. Frenchmans Rock is a rock with writing on it. I walked in the grass and it had been raining, so it was all muddy! After that we caught the ferry to Cape Jervis. On the ferry I had a pie and a doughnut. Soon after that we drove to Glenelg which is where our hotel is. Our hotel is called Stamford Grand Adelaide, it has a pool, a bar, a cafe, a lot of rooms, a car park and lots, lots more. Then we got ready to go to the beach. At that time we meet one of my Dad's best friend's wife, Vicky. Mum and Vicky went to have a coffee and Dad and I went to the beach. At the beach we paddled in the water and it was so clear! Then Vicky left and we walked over the wharf and saw a man fishing. The man caught a squid!

Today we drove to the Koala Walk. I spotted two koalas, one was eating and the other was just awake. Altogether we saw about 16 and all of them were asleep. Then we went to the visitor centre and I bought an echidna puppet, I named it Ernie. We drove to Admirals Arch and there was a big walkway and we saw lots of seals. Nearby we went to the Remarkable Rocks and climbed them. One of them was shaped like a bird. From there we went to Kingscote and went to the Island beehive place. It was a big shop and there was bee pencils, bee sharpeners, honey tasting, a beehive and lots lots more. In the beehive I spotted the Queen bee and lots of worker bees. In the afternoon we went to the pelican place and saw about forty-six pelicans, but of course, some kept flying in. The man feed them and the seagulls flew on top of his hat. At night we went to a penguin place and saw heaps of little fairy penguins. We had to go at night because they only come out when it is dark.
