My Comments of our holiday 2012
I enjoyed my holiday with my mum & dad. I like camping in the bush so we can have our camp fires and I enjoyed catching up with my Aunty in Onslow and going fishing with my Aunty. What I liked the best is seeing RED DOG in Dampier. Now I feel more relaxed, fresh, ready to start again. A new year.
