    After a very long day in the car we spent the night in Holbrook. It's a pretty small town and the only cafe open was a Mexican one, so that was lucky because we love tacos. Our cabin was small!

    There is a huge submarine in the park! We could climb on it. Why is there a submarine on land? Well there was this Captain called Holbrook who sailed on it to fight the Germans in World War 2. It was an old fashioned submarine at the time and they nearly ran out of oxygen but Holbrook was very brave and took down a whole battleship!
