Kayaking with dolphins, whales and turtles :) x

I had to get up at 7.30 today :L
This is because we are going kayaking in Byron Bay to hopefully see dolphins, whales and turtles.
Once we got to Byron Bay we got geared up. We had to put on a wet suit, a life jacket and a helmet. Then we had to get our paddle and carry our kayaks down to the beach. We had a quick safety talk. We finally got out into the ocean. We went right out and saw heaps of Dolphins. Duggie the instructor said that he hasn’t seen a pod like this in years, so we were lucky. Then we saw another lot. We heard a whale but we didn’t see it, but we were very near it. It was time to head back, and on the way back I saw a turtle’s head pop out of the water. For the last bit of the experience we had to ride a wave  It was so fun it was just like someone surfing, except we were in a kayak. We were out in the ocean for about 3 hours. OMG, you should see the sun burn I got on my legs below the wet suit.
We didn’t leave Byron Bay. We stayed and sunbathed on the beach, which was relaxing. After we had a look around the town and I got a new pencil case for school and a WV camper van key ring. We were getting hungry so we got fish and chips from the chippy.
Later, we headed back to kingscliff. We went back to our apartment and watched TV and relaxed on our balcony; we have been in ever since.
Now I have just had some pasta with tomato sauce and cheese.
