Today we got up really early and got on a bus and drove to see wild animals. The first stop was to see elephant seals. They were enormous and made low but loud grunting noises. It was quite funny.
The next stop took ages to get to and on the way we saw a group of animals in the llama family.
When we arrived at the next stop there were penguins hiding from us or sheltering from the cold. We saw seven. They weren’t as fun as the elephant seals.
Guess what next… back on the minibus! We waited around an hour to get to the final destination but it was worth the wait. When we got there we saw thousands of sea lions and they smelt like cat food.
When we got down to the village we had lunch. Then we put all of our layers on and life jackets and got on a boat to see whales!
When we were just out a little way, we saw a mother and baby splashing about. It was so amazing and one whale came so close I could see its eyes. It swam down about two metres and then sped up to the top and jumped fully out the water. I couldn’t believe my eyes.
I came back to the hostel stunned and will be for the rest of my life.

The awesome day by Neamh MacNeil
Today we’ve seen lots of animals. The first animal we saw was a llama. They were a golden colour. You wouldn’t want to be kicked by one of those.
The elephant seals made a noise like an elephant. They were quite big. We saw a baby one too!
There was a big colony of sea lions on the rocks and it was fun watching them.
We saw 8 penguins on the beach and they were staring at the phones and cameras.
We saw lots of whales and they were splashing about. I couldn’t believe I was watching them. I even saw the body and head.
It was outstanding watching this!

We have seen everything by Ruaridh MacNeil
I like my adventure.
We are in a hostel and my bed is warm.
We went on a trip. We got on a minibus. We saw lots of animals. We saw seals, sea lions, penguins.
We went on a boat to see whales. One came near the boat. I was happy.
I had a nice day.
