Our Water hole






Today we went to a water hole that is in the mountains near our house. We swam in it and it was quite cold. It has two Walls of solid rock covered in lichen On either side and a waterfall at the front with a rope tied to a small tree. You climb up the rope and you are able to jump off the ledge into the swirling waters below... Anyway, Here are some pictures.

Mission Survival



Hi. I'm bored of the Animal page so I will post something else. I have been reading this really cool series latley by Bear Grylls. It is called called "Mission Survival" It is about a Beck Granger, basically a young Bear Grylls. Who survives on missions in the jungle, etc. It is really cool. Totally awesome books, I highly recomend them. The first one is about him and friends finding El Dorado. The second is him and his friend survivng the wilderness after a plane crash to get help for his hurt uncle.




happy reading!


12 days 'till Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

Rebecah of Sunnybrook Farm















Just very recently I watched " Rebecah of Sunnybrook Farm". It stared Shirley Temple as Rebekah and it was REALLY good. (Although it was nothing like the book.) Rebecah auditions for a place in a radio program and is supposedly rejected. Her step-father takes her to live with her Aunt Miranda and Cousin Gwen. Apon realizing unexpecticly that the boss of the radio program lives next door, the boss,Tony finds his lost little radio performer and Rebecah, Gwen, And "Tony" gang up to find a way to let Rebecah perform without her Aunt knowing...

Goats


Hi guys!

WE GOT OUR GOATS BACK!!!!!!! Our 2 goats, Dolly and Freckles, who were at my Nanna's house because we couldn't keep them at our place are back home. I can't say the neighbours will be very happy with this decision. "MAaaaaaaaaaa!" (Know what I mean?) Anyway, the goats are alot happier now that they have plenty of fresh grass to eat. Below is a photo of them. ( I think you can guess who is who.)

Our Kiama Holiday

Last weekend we went camping (again) with our friends in Kiama at the campsite"East Beach". It was really fun, besides the ever-present patrolers making sure you: have your helmet on,you don't ride your bike at night, etc,etc. On the saturday we rode/walked to the two blowholes. Can you believe it, I didn't take a single photo. Not even of the blowholes! So I can only tell you about it. There was a pool there and it wasn't TOO cold so we had a swim. (Once my comrades and I summond the courage to jump in.)

Last weekend Dad, My sisters, my Uncle Graham, and his kids went camping/caving at Timor Caves. Above is a photo of one of the entrances of a cave we explored. We explored two caves. The first was awesome and some places we had to slide on our stomachs to get through











This is my Dad in a very tight squeezy spot that didn't have much oxygen in it.






The second one was SOooo much bigger and took us SOooo much longer to find. We were actually turning back when Emily and Mikaela found it.



Finding this cave was the highlight of our camping trip. It had a ladder leading down into it and afew times while I was inside I turned around and wondered where the exit was. Below is some photos of the second cave.






This picture is Mikaela being ferociously
grabbed by a giant stone hand. Ahhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!







This photograph is me sitting on a throne
carved out of the solid rock.
