Yesterday we went into Sydney on the train. It was really exciting! From the train we saw beautiful landscapes.
When we arrived in Sydney we bought our
ferry tickets. We walked through the bustling wharf and to the dock.
Very shortly our boat docked and we took
top seats to get a better
view. The ferry was great. We rode right past the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Bridge! It was a dream come true for me,
to see one of the world's most popular sights was breathtaking!
After the ferry ride, we went to the sky ride. It was like a roller coaster ride. Then finally we got into the zoo
and began exploring.
We saw koalas, huge pelicans, kangaroos, wallibies, birds, platypus, snakes, a crocky ("she be right, Dad, she be right!"),
gorillas, chimpanzees, bears, birds of prey, seals, giraffees, penguins, wombats, dingos, meerkats, red pandas, lizards,
snow leopards, spider monkies, my favorite, lions, and tigers! It was our best field trip ever!
