An Exciting Morning ……..

This morning Dad woke me up with a surprise. He had the idea that Iluka, he and I should go down to the  beach airstrip and ask if we could have a scenic flight around the place. The pilot said yes and we boarded the little, single-engine, 6-seater plane.


The view was amazing from up there, as we flew along the ocean towards Eurong, then we turned inland and flew over the forest, it looked like a carpet of small shrubs but actually (like most you know) it was a living rain forest full of trees and plants of all different sizes. We also flew by (or over) the central lakes, including the stingray shaped Lake McKenzie. They looked a lot smaller from the air. Then we came back along the beach and we were about to land…. but then we took off again and flew out over the ocean. Then I saw a real stingray!

We had a fantastic time and it was a great way to start a winter Sunday.
