On Thursday we arrived at Darwin. We stayed with the Boyle family who used to live in Mount Beauty. We all went out for dinner to an ‘all you can eat’ seafood buffet. I ate dinner and then 15 pieces of watermelon dipped in chocolate followed by one raw oyster. I almost gagged. We busked at the Parap market and checked out the Museum afterwards. We also went to the Leanyer water park as well as the skate park. The water park was massive. There were three water slides. One was blue and it was very wide and you could twist around in it. The second one was yellow and it was fast. And the last one was red and it was pitch black inside and you had to ride in a double tube inside that one. Will and I went to the movies another day and saw Dark of the Moon 3D. It was really cool and went for ages. We went busking at the famous Mindel market and made $300!!!!!!!!!! :)
Dad got interviewed by the local newspaper about the carbon tax, but the people changed what he really said.
On the last night Ash and I hung
out at the wharf with Jane, Will and Lachlan and ate fish and chips while mum and dad went out for mum’s birthday at an Indian restaurant.
