Hey mates! How ya goin’? You may think that all Aussies say “g’day mate”, and they do! But more often, they say “How ya goin’?” (which is not grammatically correct at all!) as a greeting.
For the past week I’ve been camping, which means no Wi-Fi, which, of course, means I couldn’t publish blog posts. Instead I swam at the beach, boogie boarded, played soccer, and sighted wildlife. While camping I encountered kangaroos, cockatoos, parrots, wallabies, blue bottles (jellyfish), ravens, sea rays, sting rays, seagulls, wombats, kookaburras, and all kinds of other crazy stuff that I can’t name (unfortunately not one quokka)!
The campsites here have grills, so we have been cooking out every night. Most of my diet has been sausages, burgers, and grilled veggies. Plus hot chocolate for breakfast!
I even made a couple friends along the way. One let me borrow his surfboard so I could try out surfing, others drew with charcoal with me, and some even played Minecraft with me!
I got to see a blowhole called the Kiama Blowhole! Now I’m not talking whales here, even though I would like to see a couple, but rather rocks. Check this out!
We camped at Booderee National Park, a place called Mallacoota, and Wilsons Promontory, which is the southernmost point of the Australian mainland.
Plus we got to roast marshmallows!
