I went to San Francisco. It was fun because I went to the beach. I found two rocks. Then I went to a giant playground. I went on a piece of cardboard down a slide. I used sand to make it faster and it was faster. I also met my dad’s friend Julianne. Yesterday, I saw my dad’s friend Julianne again and went to lots of rides [in Santa Cruz], like a roller coaster, a water ride, a haunted house, and an up and down one, and lots more. Peter found a full sand dollar which is very lucky. I made postcards and sended it to my friend. I am going camping. I’m going to play with my football, and if there is a playground, I’m going to play on it. My dad is going to make a campfire. It will be so fun camping.
Going to San Francisco was a very fun time. There, I had a very big walk. We started at the beach. At the beach, I wanted to go swimming, but I couldn’t because I had no swimming suit and it was too cold. I went near the ocean and found a crab, a very cool rock, and some seaweed. After the beach, we walked to a bison area [in Golden Gate Park] and saw the last few families of bison. We walked past them and went on a walk for an hour. Finally we made it to a tea garden. The tea garden had too big a lineup, so we just rested and went on another walk to the playground and played there. I remembered that I went to this playground when I was four [ during a previous trip to San Francisco]. After a good sleep, it was tomorrow.
Fact: Redwoods are giant trees that grow in California. We camped in the redwoods and had a really good time. Sam made an inukshuk and I made a tipi. The tipi was for good luck so the fairies don’t steal our tent and car.
