Adele has memorised the books of the Old Testament.
Damon has continued experimenting with the primary and secondary colours in art. For someone who was not keen on art, he sure has changed and now looks forward to it!
Damon also completed his project on Johann Gutenberg. He created a border of printing presses and Johann himself.
Continuing our theme on light, the girls created their own lanterns. They were so excited to light them this evening and walk around in the dark.
NORAH HEAD LIGHTHOUSE TOUR..
The kids had been looking forward to this family excursion. And we weren't disappointed! It was a beautiful day and we had a fantastic tour guide :)
Avril was keen to sketch the outside of the lighthouse, so as we waited for our guide, Avril settled down to draw.
My little poses!!
See the domes in this picture? I hadn't realised that each lighthouse had it's own design that allowed seamen to know where they were! Norah Head has domes and Byron Bay has pyramids!
The kids loved the next level! Here they found a red light, which alerted seamen to a reef. This light could be seen only out of one window, which was made of red perspex. And it could be seen for kilometere's out at sea.
Up at the top of the lighthouse, we saw the huge light, that just kept turning day and night. We heard stories of how much work was involved in the past to keep the light in good working order. We also learned that the light does not blink, but just turns around, which makes it seem like it blinks.
We also discovered the historical fire escape plan! A rope over the side of the lighthouse! I was very glad that I wouldn't be needing that! I would recommend a tour of the lighthouse, it was fascinating!
After the tour we headed down to the beach to explore the rock pools.
The kids found lots of interesting creatures to gaze at and touch! After a short walk along the beach, the kids found some slopes and rocks to climb!
My kids love climbing and exploring new spaces..
Our next stop was at The Entrance for lunch, icecream and a swim!
