Wellington to Gisborne

Week beginning 15 April 2019

On Monday, Hazel and I went to a holiday camp for the day and somebody built this swing to play on. We played in the bush making forts. We also made potions (tree potions, poison potions, un-tree potions, un-poison potions, calming potions, weakness potions, un-weakness potions, smell nice potions, loving potions, flower potions and flying potions) and sold them at a pretend potion stand. Leaves were money and it cost five leaves for a dip of a potion and fifteen leaves for a whole bucket. The boys loved the poison and weakness potions. The girls loved the loving, flying and flower potions. The teachers loved them all.

On the last day in Wellington my mum, my sister and I went for a walk around the park and on the way back we dawdled around on the beach with the ducks and I climbed on the bridge. Can you see me?

When we were sailing to Gisborne and the dolphins had just left, we spotted a wonderful sunset; it had all different colours from the rainbow.

When we arrived in Gisborne, that night it was full moon and the moon was like a street light. Can you see the moon?

We rode our scooters across the train bridge (it was made for pedestrians too).

On Easter morning we got so many Easter eggs; there were more than twelve eggs!

In the afternoon, we went to a festival and there was a pony there that scared Hazel. The festival was called ‘The first light festival’ because Gisborne is the first city in the world to see the sun each day.
