Seal in Wattle Downs

Dear diary,

Today I went to Wattle Downs to meet new people and see the environment.

When I got there I started to feel like I wanted to swim so I went to the lake near Clayton Park school and swam.

After the swim I thought I like the people and the environment.

After that I thought I might like to come back for a swim and see the people again.
