Chair Exercise Team Tasmania Trek Virtual Postcard #3

Wednesday, January 29, 2014

Dear Eve, Jack, Abby Avery, Sammy, Katie, Autumn, Noah, Lily, Emma and Gabby,

I'm sorry that I'm getting a little behind in sending you these post cards! We have been so busy visiting interesting places since we got here to Tasmania this week that I can hardly keep up. My head is spinning!

Sunday we went to a wonderful Australia Day Celebration at Henley on Mersey near our hotel in Latrobe! I had on my Australia flip-flops and my Australian flag to wave. There were so many things to do! I watched a whip cracking demonstration that Jack would have really enjoyed. I tried to do it, but got all tangled up. emoticon

I rode on a hand-made merry go round that the scouts lashed together. Here's a photo. Boys, don't let mom catch you trying to build one in the back yard! I think they call it a hurdy gurdy.

There were all kinds of fun contests like a hay bale throwing contest and a hilarious cherry spitting contest. I tried the egg throwing contest but ended up with egg all over me. emoticon

But I think the most fun event of all was the ferret race. They put their ferrets in a tube and the little critters had to run to the other end. Their owners weren't allowed to touch the tubes or entice them with food. It was so much fun.

Well, I better go for now. I will send another postcard very soon my lovelies!
Love you,
