|We were walking on the boardwalk and we saw some
macaws. They were on the top of the trees in the branches and they were all sorts of
different colors. We went travelling in the boat. When we were paddling on that boat we
saw a three-toed tree sloth. When we got close to the hut I got to paddle the boat.
lunch it was raining really hard so we stayed at the hut and played in the hammock. We
found this little bug that was a kind of beetle. He was crawling around. And I went
fishing and I caught a big fish that ate some of my fishing meat.
There were piranhas living in the water and we went
swimming with the piranhas and the dolphins. The dolphins were pink and white and they are
blind. The dolphins stayed around us for a long time.
