Our visit to Áras Inis Gluaire


A long time ago scientists put a special buoy in the ice in the North Pole to measure how deep the water is,how salty the water is and how cold the water is. Then it started to drift with the waves down the Atlantic Ocean. Then another iceberg slid over the top of it and it lost its signal for a long time. But then while it was sliding down with the waves It got its signal back again! The iceberg had melted! But then it lost the signal again as it went down the waves and then the waves brought the buoy to Blacksod Bay where a man called Fergus found it.He called someone to come check it out. The man told him it was a buoy that came from the North Pole. He told the civic center and then decided to display it so that people could come and visit it! Our school went to visit it. It was so cool ! It was yellow. The buoy must have met LOADS of mammals along the way,dolphins, polar bears, penguins, seals and maybe even whales! We could not lift the bouy! It was so heavy!
