Hi! I'm Juliet. I'm ten years old. And I'm nearly a vet! It's the holidays and we're going camping by the beach. I'm bringing my vet-kit in case of any animal emergencies. Vets needs to be prepared for anything! I can't wait to toast marshmallows by the campfire, swim in the sea and explore the rock-pools - there are so many amazing animals at the beach. Chelsea and I really want to see a dolphin or a whale.
