Sunshine has some flashbacks to share about her summer. Some of them include going to the PNE and riding the new most terrifying ride there, Atmosphere. It was a swinging carousal many metres in the air, higher than the Helivator, the highest ride in Vancouver. “I was so scared that I kind of went numb and started drooling on my sister! ” In other words “it was worth it, I could see everything, I could see a lake nearby, it was great.
Another thing I did was go camping for a day and a half near Toronto. We had to make our meals, and I fainted from the heat because I was carrying such a heavy backpack. I was carrying a bunch of kitchen supplies – I think it weighed more than me! I still had a good time, except for cleaning the dishes with pine needles and a pine cone for a scrubby. We went for a walk in the woods around 11 pm and all the girls sat in separate locations about twenty five metres apart in the dark and we were writing in our journals. About twenty minutes before it was time to go, a girl in the dark starting saying hello, hello, and we didn’t answer because we weren’t supposed to speak. In the end we went to her and comforted her because she started crying. All went well except we decided not to do that again!
My mom and my sisters and my best friend Steph and I planned a trip to Buntzen Lake but we ended up at Balcarra instead because the bus took us the wrong way. We still had fun, because we all found a little jelly fish that didn’t sting us and we watched him in a little tide pool till the waves came and washed the tide pool away. A little later Steph and I saw a far away point on a flat rock. We hiked to it over the sand and waded through the water to get there, going through trees that scraped us and looked at the clear water. We felt really proud of our exploring. We wanted to go further but the sign said the high tide would wash us away.
Today my adventure was to learn to crochet. It was really fun once I got the hang of it, but then I learned the next step and it got a teensy bit harder. I will probably work on it later on, for now I am going to give it a rest!”
