Great Ocean Road 1

Sorry For the late post but there had been other stuff going on and I couldn’t get around to this post for I had a holiday. But here it is! I hope you enjoy it! I will be posting 3 of these for you.

The Great Ocean Road 1

It was early in the morning when I woke up. It was a moment or two to realize that today was the day that we go on the great ocean road for the first time! I dressed quickly and quietly, not to wake my sisters and tiptoed to my cupboard. I pulled out my books and resources for the trip and stuffed them in my traveling bag.  Finally I came to my Teddy. This teddy was one of my treasured artefacts for it has been in my family for 15 years. I has been passed down from father to son, to me. I hesitated. ‘Dad will kill me for losing it.’ I scolded myself, ‘better not risk it.’ I pushed the contents in my bag deeper and threw them onto my bed. I then went into the kitchen.

I could tell that I had been in my room longer than I thought. The room was bustling around and my sisters have already woken up. I crossed the kitchen to my chair and sat down.  Today was a quick brekky. It was milk and toast as most days it was plain porridge and banana bread. I gulped down my milk and devoured my toast. I then went to my room and grabbed my book and bag, rushed around my room like a badger digging out a carrot and snatched a sunscreen roll and my jiggling bell my grandpa sent me for Christmas. A loud voice pierced the morning air ‘TREVOR, HURRY UP!’, ‘WAIT!!!’ I shouted back. I dashed out of the house and locked the door behind me. I jumped into the car and shut the door. Finally, we were off!!! I immediately brought out my book. I am a big fan of Harry Potter and I have read every single book in the series. I’m kind of obsessed with books. They lead my imagination far and wide from the real world where enchanted grows. Last time I read a book from 7.00PM to 10.00PM and I totally got yelled at. My dad was so angry that he took all my books and hid them away.

So the journey continued from 9.00AM to 10.00AM ( 1 hour ). When we parked I could tell this was not the great ocean road. So I asked ‘ Dad, where is this place? ‘ Well, the answer was both very exciting and surprising. He replied ‘ Adventure Park ‘ I was hardly believing my ears. I stuttered ‘ Pardon me? ‘ But dad did not reply. I stared into the distance in wonder. Was this real? I pinched myself. YOW!! I held out my arm holding it in pain. Nope this is definitely real!

The more we went in, more excited I became. The great landscape of the park was really coming to shape. The giant Ferris Wheel was towering over the lobby and the world’s famous giant water slide in Australia, the TORANADO was the most attracting of them all. Nearly the whole park’s people was coming towards it. Unfortunately I was not able to get on due to the massive wait filing out of the doorstep. I played on the giant racing slide and the long river run. I was so blown away by all of this that I couldn’t wait to even touch one. My mum insisted on eating lunch first but I wasn’t too keen. When I said I was full I dismissed myself from the table and went on the Big crazed Cha-Cha.

After all the other rides, My dad said that we should go home. It was 4 o’clock in the evening and personally I agreed. My muscles were aching from the exercise. But my sister totally disagreed. She insisted to go on another ride. We broke up in a small fight. Eventually I managed to convince her to go to our hotel and I shall give her a lollipop ( Which I never did ). She can never resist a lollipop.

In the car I fell asleep. I dreamed about my greatest adventure in adventure park and imagined I could fly. I knew I could not do either of these in my life but I did know my holiday was about to get more interesting.
