TRIP TO WEST ISLAND
One day my father said he would take my sister Janet and me to West Island, which is about two miles from our home by sea.
Of course we were verv ex
cited when the Swallow, grand pa^ fishing cutter, started. After we had been travelling a little while father said I could steer, so under grandpa's direc tions we progressed safely* Janet and I helped grandpa anchor a little way from the
island and then got into the dinghy which grandpa rowed towards a rock. When tiie stern hit the rock father jumped quickly. After the dinghy had hit it again Janet and I were on the island. We saw many seagulls' nests and a baby seagull which we stroked. Also we were lucky enough to see two penguins hiding under a rock. I found a lovely shell and we saw where the men had blasted the granite for Government House. When we were coming home fattier showed us the pigeon cave, which is in the Bluff. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip and would like^to go again. Original story by Phyiis Rumbdow (14), Box 81, Victor Harbor.— Blue Certificate.
