Today the kookaburra came to visit - we had to zoom a bit so you could see him/her so I am a fuzzy blur!!  :rolleyes:  Sue often feeds the kookaburras mince but she didn't have any today. The bird just sat on the bird feeder and watched us!

Hi Mum,

Today we went in to the city with Sue - there was a big principals, teachers and support staff strike and so we went to the rally in the city. There were 15,000 people there!! :o  Lots of talking went on, sometimes it was boring for us but then we enjoyed the walk to the Parliament Building.

And guess what??? I have seen my first elephant!! Yay!!  :D
It wasn't a real one - it was one of the special ones made of fiberglass and painted by a local artist - there are 50 of these around the city to celebrate the Zoo having had elephants for 150 years!

pretty impressive lizard!!
http://i1202.photobucket.com/albums/bb376/tupaismum/September/P1010605.jpg

Hi Mum,
Today we are off on a road trip,
http://i1202.photobucket.com/albums/bb376/tupaismum/Zoo%20and%20park/P1010893.jpg
http://i1202.photobucket.com/albums/bb376/tupaismum/Zoo%20and%20park/P1010894.jpg
more gum trees,
http://i1202.photobucket.com/albums/bb376/tupaismum/Zoo%20and%20park/P1010895.jpg
now we are on the freeway
http://i1202.photobucket.com/albums/bb376/tupaismum/Zoo%20and%20park/P1010896.jpg
more freeway
http://i1202.photobucket.com/albums/bb376/tupaismum/Zoo%20and%20park/P1010897.jpg
looks like more freeway but we are arriving at Ballarat! :D
http://i1202.photobucket.com/albums/bb376/tupaismum/Zoo%20and%20park/P1010899.jpg
We have arrived at the Wildlife Park.
http://i1202.photobucket.com/albums/bb376/tupaismum/Zoo%20and%20park/P1010900.jpg
Sue lifted me up to have a look at an emu,
http://i1202.photobucket.com/albums/bb376/tupaismum/Zoo%20and%20park/P1010907.jpg
I was feeding the kangaroo!  :D
http://i1202.photobucket.com/albums/bb376/tupaismum/Zoo%20and%20park/P1010908.jpg
then I met Miffy the koala - she was very soft and friendly!

http://i1202.photobucket.com/albums/bb376/tupaismum/Zoo%20and%20park/P1010913.jpg
over the back is a Tasmanian Devil - called that because of their glowing red ears and the horrible noises they make!

http://i1202.photobucket.com/albums/bb376/tupaismum/Zoo%20and%20park/P1010922.jpg
This is Patrick the wombat and an unknown child - it was a busy day at the park and hard to get a good photo. Wombats are nocturnal so need food to bribe them to come out into the sunshine!
http://i1202.photobucket.com/albums/bb376/tupaismum/Zoo%20and%20park/P1010925.jpg
Over the back are two echnidas - they are the Australian version of an ant eater or hedgehog
http://i1202.photobucket.com/albums/bb376/tupaismum/Zoo%20and%20park/P1010931.jpg
some sleepy koala's in the tree

Hi Mum,

This morning we are in Gundagai because the car has broken down and we are waiting for it to be fixed!! We had to wait for one and a half hours on the side of the Hume Freeway yesterday until the tow truck picked us up. We got towed to Gundagai and stayed overnight - http://i1202.photobucket.com/albums/bb376/tupaismum/Canberra/P1020204.jpg
today we had a look at the old train station
we sat on the luggage trolley
http://i1202.photobucket.com/albums/bb376/tupaismum/Canberra/P1020206.jpg
had a ride on an old jigger
http://i1202.photobucket.com/albums/bb376/tupaismum/Canberra/P1020207.jpg
we had a look at the old bridge

then the car was fixed and we were back on the road.  :D
But when you travel from New South Wales to Victoria you have to put your fruit i bins so you don't bring fruit fly into Victoria, so we stopped and did the right thing!

Hi Mum,

Today we had a work trip with Sue here to Castlemaine - once work was finished we had a little look around
http://i1202.photobucket.com/albums/bb376/tupaismum/Castlemaine/P1020256.jpg
on the road
here I am at a lookout above the town
http://i1202.photobucket.com/albums/bb376/tupaismum/Castlemaine/P1020259.jpg
here is a monument to two explorers, Burke and Wills who tried to find a route from the south to the north of Australia
http://i1202.photobucket.com/albums/bb376/tupaismum/Castlemaine/P1020265.jpg
Next we had a look at an old gold mining area - there are lots around here - the miners used to use hoses to wash the gold out of the rock face

After a long and tiring journey, Arthur was very happy to arrive in London, where he was welcomed by his host, Travel Ted. Travel Ted was very pleased to meet his new guest, and Arthur’s kind gift of chocolate was gratefully received (and quickly disappeared).

By the time Arthur reached his London lodgings it was late at night and time for bed. He looked forward to a good night’s sleep and pleasant dreams of all the famous London landmarks Travel Ted promised to show him.

Techincally, his arrival in London meant he had completed his second mission, but he resolved to wait until he had seen at least one well-known sight before ticking it off on his mission list.
Deborah


Posted Jun 13, 2013, 12:38 am
It was a cold, rainy, and miserable day, but this did little to dampen Arthur’s spirit as he visited Trafalgar Square and had his photo taken in front of Nelson’s Column. (He had to hold on tight to a bollard in case he got blown away by the wind, or stolen by one of the square’s famous pigeons, but that was ok!)

Second mission completed. Brilliant!
Deborah


Posted Jun 15, 2013, 5:25 pm
Although the weather wasn’t very good, Arthur was keen to get out and see some sights. His first stop was Piccadilly Circus, where he saw the famous statue of Eros.

All the streets in this area had big purple banners on display, to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. Arthur thought this was quite interesting, and had a little sit down in Regent Street while he studied them more closely.

Next, he visited Covent Garden, and had his photograph taken outside the market building. Nearby were two of London’s iconic red phone boxes, which he liked very much.
Deborah


Posted Jun 16, 2013, 5:37 pm
Although the weather still wasn’t very good, Arthur enjoyed a good day of sightseeing.

First, he visited the London Eye – the tallest ferris wheel in Europe. Officially opened on 31 December 1999, it was often referred to as the ‘Millennium Wheel’ and was, at that point, the biggest ferris wheel in the world. Located on the South Bank of the River Thames, it offers panoramic views of the city and remains a very popular London attraction.
Deborah


Posted Jun 16, 2013, 5:38 pm
Walking further west along the South Bank of the Thames, Arthur passed several other popular tourist attractions, including the London Dungeon, the London Film Museum, and the London Aquarium, before crossing over Westminster Bridge to see Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament.

He was very impressed by the enormous clock tower. Although it was officially renamed ‘The Elizabeth Tower’ in 2012 (to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II), everyone still calls it Big Ben.

The adjacent Houses of Parliament (officially called ‘The Palace of Westminster’ were almost equally formidable. After arriving home, he felt inspired to read more about this great building here: Palace of Westminster.
Deborah


Posted Jun 16, 2013, 5:43 pm
Moving in a circle, Arthur walked east along the Victoria Embankment on the north side of the river. This took him through the Whitehall area of London – and gave him an opportunity to admire some of the beautiful dolphin lamps, as well as another good view of the London Eye, as well as some of the busy river traffic. Most of the boats were designed as sightseeing vehicles for tourists, although an increasing number of boats cater to local commuters.

His walk took him past the ‘Battle of Britain’ war memorial monument, which seemed appropriate since his next stop was the Ministry of Defence, the entrance of which was flanked by two huge statues by Sir Charles Wheeler, which symbolise Earth and Water.
Deborah


Posted Jun 16, 2013, 5:44 pm
Arthur’s final stop for the day was the Horse Guards’ Barracks, where he queued up behind the other tourists to have his photo taken with one of the mounted sentries. This was a definite highlight of his trip to London.
Deborah


Posted Jul 20, 2013, 8:12 pm
It was a lovely sunny day, and Arthur found himself drawn back to the River Thames. He was quite overawed by Cleopatra’s Needle, which is 21 metres high, and which was first erected in Heliopolis in Egypt around 1450 BC. It now stands on the Victoria Embankment, having been given to the UK in 1819 and transported there at great expense in 1877.

The needle is guarded by two sphinxes. Arthur felt a bit intimidated by them at first, but they turned out to be quite friendly, as did the dolphins on the lampposts.
Deborah


Posted Jul 20, 2013, 9:53 pm
A Saturday morning seemed like a good time for a long walk. Arthur started in Blackheath, a historic suburb of South East London. After a weeklong heat wave, the grass was looking rather brown, but he enjoyed the pleasant view across to All Saints’ Church.
Deborah


Posted Jul 20, 2013, 9:55 pm
On the border of Blackheath Common lay Greenwich Park – a very famous place. Arthur began his explorations in the Flower Gardens, where he climbed an oak tree and took a picture of an inquisitive squirrel.
Deborah


Posted Jul 20, 2013, 9:56 pm
There was a great deal of activity over by the bandstand. Arthur hoped he might have arrived in time for a concert, but it turned out that all the people were gathering for a charity walk and picnic.
Deborah


Posted Jul 20, 2013, 9:57 pm
A little further on, Arthur reached the top of a steep hill, from which he enjoyed panoramic views over London. The first thing that caught his eye was a curious white structure – once known as the Millennium Dome – which now housed a big leisure complex and concert venue called the O2.
Deborah


Posted Jul 20, 2013, 9:58 pm
At the top of the hill stood the Old Royal Observatory – a very important scientific site founded in 1675. In its grounds is the Meridian Line, from which all time is measured around the world. In 1833, a big red ‘time ball’ was installed on the roof. Arthur was interested to learn that the ball still drops at 1.00 every day, to help people set their clocks and watches correctly. Before leaving, he examined a plaque on one of the outside walls, which shows different British measurements.
Deborah


Posted Jul 20, 2013, 9:59 pm
Looking down the hill, Arthur saw another interesting building: The Queen’s House, designed by Inigo Jones. Many members of British royalty lived in this building, and King Henry VIII was born there. In the distance, on the opposite side of the river, he could see the skyscrapers of Canary Wharf – an important centre for banking.
Deborah


Posted Jul 20, 2013, 10:00 pm
On reaching the bottom of the hill, Arthur saw a very curious site: an enormous ship inside a bottle! The bottle, designed by Yinka Shonibare, was 4.7 metres long, and had first been displayed in Trafalgar Square before moving to its new home outside the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich.
Deborah


Posted Jul 20, 2013, 10:01 pm
Exploring the grounds of the Queen’s House was fun. From under the colonnade, Arthur could see the Observatory on the top of the hill, which showed just how far he had walked. He was also quite delighted to find a couple of old ships’ cannons, which he had fun playing with.
Deborah


Posted Jul 20, 2013, 10:02 pm
Nearby, Arthur discovered a fabulous collection of enormous anchors, and other curious objects. He wondered what the big orange and yellow metal thing was. Luckily there was sign explaining that this was a cutterhead from a dredger, and was used to dig out sand and rock from the seabed.
Deborah


Posted Jul 20, 2013, 10:03 pm
Christopher Wren’s Old Royal Naval College was another famous place. Now home to Greenwich University, its impressive buildings have also been seen in lots of movies, including Octopussy, Patriot Games, The Wings of the Dove, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, Gulliver’s Travels, The King’s Speech, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Skyfall, Les Miserables, and many others.
Deborah


Posted Jul 20, 2013, 10:04 pm
Arthur’s feet were getting quite tired now, but no trip to Greenwich would be complete without a visit to the Cutty Sark. In the late 19th century, this famous tea clipper was one of the fastest sailing ships in the world, and was used to transport tea from China to England, before later being used to bring wool all the way from Australia.
Deborah


Posted Jul 22, 2013, 10:42 pm
The weather in London was very hot and sweaty, so Arthur’s last afternoon with Travel Ted was spent playing Scrabble indoors. The game had been going well for Arthur (he was particularly pleased to have placed a J on the treble word score), but, towards the end, his letters started to look a little bit difficult.

Hi!

Sorry, you haven't hear anything from me for awhile:/
But I'm totally fine, and I'm coming home very soon.
So, see you then:)

We have celebrated Christmas and New Year.
We saw Santa Claus, but he wasn't the real one:(
