Penny the Traveling Clothespin Doll shares her adventures at home and abroad.

Penny Visits the Land Down Under

Penny first began her adventures with an amazing opportunity to travel to Australia with our friend, Andrea.      Here are the pages we created for the scrapbook.  We added interesting pictures found online that feature some of the wonders of Australia.  It was fun to research the unusual critters that live there.



Dear Penny,

Remember when we traveled to Australia, the world’s smallest continent, in 2005? You sat in palm trees and met kangaroos, koalas, and kookaburras, birds that make a noise that sounds a bit like a person laughing. At night, we could see the Southern Cross, a constellation that isn’t visible in the Northern Hemisphere.

We took pictures when we visited Cape Byron, the most easterly point of the Australian mainland. We loved how clear the water was and how we could see the ocean floor beneath the sparkling waves.









 After Penny returned home to New York, we sent two dolls to live with Andrea’s relatives and become citizens of Australia.   They probably have picked up a good Aussie accent by now, eh?  Here they are pictured in Penny’s bedroom before traveling.
