hard drives

by Ashdon wood who has a hard drive and is really really really stupid

my uncle gave us a hard drive which plays movies. when you turn it on you have to wait for ten minutes because it has a lot of movies in there to get loaded up. you can put as much movies in your hard drive but when you turn the hard drive on it will take a longer time to load up. you need electricity to play your hard drive if you don't it means it won't go. so buy yours today only at NSW.this is Ashdon here and I am just finished for now.have a great day today so bye.

Lake Argyle

2nd and 3rd of September

sunny 34 °C

This morning we left the camp spot and drove to Lake Argyle . We talked on the radios to nan and pop for a little bit. After lunch we drove a bit further to the Western Australia and Northern Territory border. When we got to the caravan park in Lake Argyle we went swimming in the pool and made a new friend.

I woke up extra early this morning at 5:30 am because I thought I was 7:00 am and I got in trouble for making lots of noise. Later on in the morning[8:30] we went for a drive to the lookout and we could see the dam wall. It was made out of lots of rocks and a bit of clay I think as well. We went back and had lunch before the bus picked us up to take us to the boat. When we got on the boat we saw rock wallabys. We went past the dam wall and we got to feed the fish and drive the boat. The boat had a really big TV to show us where the boat was and how deep it was. We found some freshwater crocodiles and a group of kangaroos on one of the islands and the man let us feed them. We started heading back but we stopped in the middle of the lake and went swimming while the sun was going down. The water was 24 metres deep where we where swimming. We climb the ladder to the top of the boat and got to jump off and it was really fun. We got back on the boat and went back. Ashdon said it was the best boat ride he had ever been on even though he didn't want to go on it before. We went back to the caravan and had dinner and watched a bit of spongebob.

Back in Katherine

By Jolie Wood

About an hour after dad left a tow truck came. We watched the car getting put on the tow truck and then mum and the man had to put the caravan on the back of the car. After the caravan and car where put on the truck we got on the truck and went back to Katherine. We went to the caravan park and undid the caravan off the truck. Then the man left with the car. Later Leith asked dad if we could go for a drive and so did Ashdon.

Hot Springs

by Ashdon wood in the Hot Springs

Ah the Hot Springs a nice place to stay. It has a rope that you can swing on and a mini waterfall you can slide off. And even better no crocodiles not even freshwater but if you go past a tree branch it would lead you to a river that would have some crocodiles in it so don't pass the tree branch. The heat of the Hot Springs comes from underground in the heat of the sun and the suns heat can sink in the ground and comes back up in water. The Hot Springs is for free so that's why it is always busy but not that busy on school days because kids are at school. Hot springs is the best place I have ever swam.

the caves

by Leith wood

ok, I liked the caves. They were good.

Blah, Blah

sort of by Leith Wood

I liked Cairns the best because it had a waterpark at the place that we were staying. I liked seeing dynusors end kroks and the Qantas planes. I thought the crocodiles were big and just little a bit scary and I wasn't allowed to go near the river or waterholes because a crocodile might eat me. I do not like to do any bushwalking and drive my mum and dad crazy when I tell them I can't walk any more. I'm going to see some caves this afternoon but I don't like cave either. I would have liked to stayed home and gone to school.

This morning we left Jabiru and went to a campground near Cooinda. When we got there we had lunch and went to Jim Jim falls. We drove on a gravel road and walked the rest of the way. We had to walk over lots of rocks and Ashdon and Leith we complaining that they had to walk. When we got there there wasn't that much water in the waterfall but in the pool at the bottom of the waterfall it was nice. On the way back I found 2 snakes and 1 baby crocodile.
