Bella and Oscar arrive safely in San Diego – a belated welcome from Bella …..
The Trip Has Started…
We have arrived in San Diego, and finally have chosen a van.
On Tuesday we had a lazy jet-lagged day of beaches and bed.
On Wednesday we went to a rocky, wave crashing beach. Me and Oscar climbed the sandy rocks, chased away the sea gulls and ran away from the foaming crashing waves. Even better on the neighbouring beach there was a much more exciting sight. Guess what there was? Seals! There were seals swimming in to the shore with their cute newborn babies. What a sight is was! When all of the seals were in the beach they lay down and slept. On the next beach there was hundreds and hundreds of sleeping seals, some of them were awake and swimming in the sea. This beach was closed because of the seals.
On Friday we went to Tutankhanmum exhibit and saw the replicas of all his treasure and his golden coffins! We watched videos and listened to audio tapes of the story of. Mr Bennett, Oscar can tell you all about Tutankhanmum now!
On Saturday we went to a nature reserve beach, and did a long walk down the beach. We had a swim in the freezing cold sea, jumping waves and wading out as far as we dared.
On Sunday we went on the USS Midway, which is an enormous aircraft carrier and a museum. It was gigantic like a floating skyscraper. On the Hangar deck (which is where they kept the planes) there was a flight simulator. This is how it works:
1 First you get inside;
2 Then the people shut the door;
3 After that a screen comes on and you try to shoot the bad guys;
4 Which ever way you turn the handle you go.
Me and Oscar went on it and it was brilliant!
Thats all … for now ….. Bella
