I'm home!!!

G'Day Mates!!!! I am home from my vacation to Australia!!! I'm not even sure I can begin to describe the things I've done and seen in the 3 short weeks! It was definitely NOT enough to see the whole country, but I got a GREAT taste of what Oz has to offer!!! Well worth the long trip!!!! Here are a few pics until I get more off my camera!!! ENJOY!!!

Me holding a Estuarine Crocodile (Saltwater croc) named Toby:

Me at the Penguin Parade on Phillips Island:

Me holding Fred:

Me rejoicing I made it to the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge without dying of fear! LOL

Me snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef with Wally, a Maori Wasse fish:

That's all for now! Will post more soon! I need to go nap!!! Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
