Ethan - Meandering down the eastern sea board

Hi everyone,

It was excellent today to log onto the blog and find comments from; Ella, Nick, Amelia, Leia, Beck, Myah, and Eva!  Thanks so much for the messages. 


Like you guys I am sort of counting down till school holidays as mum makes me do school work 4 mornings a week……. Only 1 week to go.  


I have been doing heaps of swimming in the sea at Bingil Bay,  where I also watched an episode of “lost in space” with another family we met there.  Lost in space was on TV ages ago when my mum and dad were young and it was really funny.  In it was a smart brave robot and a funny doctor who was very lazy and blamed the robot for anything that went wrong.  If you get a chance you should watch an episode - it made me laugh.

At Bingil Bay there were loads of coconut palms and everyday we were there dad would crack open the coconuts so we could drink the milk and eat the coconut meat.  It was yummy – but made your jaw ache a bit with all the chewing.


Since we left Bingil Bay we have visited Cardwell, - where there were two beautiful big roosters up in an old cottonwood tree beside the water when we had morning tea, they kept crowing while mum and dad had their coffee.  We had to camp at a caravan park in Bowen that night because we needed to charge up the batteries and fill up with water.  It had a great pool so I went swimming again of course!!      During the day today, we went to Airlie Beach, and tonight we are back camping beside the beach at St Helen’s Campground which is sort of near Mackay.   


At this beach there are loads of migratory wading birds – so we have been looking them up in the bird book to work out what sorts are here.


Enjoy the last week of school everyone, See you all soon!
