We dropped the car off for a service (in Townsville – editors note) then walked around town until we arrived at Reef HQ. As we walked in and paid we looked at a coupe of tanks with fish, saltwater crock and mud crab.
Then we walked into the aquarium, then we sat down and watched the dive show with Dyan. She talked about a green sea turtle called Treeny. Then she swam to go and give Cuddles, the tawny nurse shark, a big hug.
Then we went through the underwater tunnel. Then we walked to the Discovery Lagoon. There are starfish you can touch, then they fed a stingray, then we walked to the predator feeding. They feed all the fish, sharks and turtles. They feed them big fish heads, prawns, and little fish.
Then we went to a turtle hospital where they help turtles.
Thanks for that postcard it is wonderful. You must have had a great time at reef headquarters and seen so many thinks. I especially loved you in the divers helmet, was it hot in there? Looking forward to seeing you when you are back in Sydney and hearing the things you liked best (was it catching the barra?)
Good on you Oscar, very descriptive, your teacher should be very impressed as we are. x
