We went to a campsite which was a farm called Bouncer's Farm. On the first day there, we met Charlotte and she is five years old. She came into our tent. It was not full that day because we just arrived and had not unpacked. There are two pigs called Wagtail and Wilbur. We can feed them our leftovers as long as we didn't feed them potatoes, oranges and meat. There was a pony called Goldie at the farm, two horses called Pearl and Pebbless. We made fires every night and ate marshmallows from sticks, I made friends with girls called Suki, Amelie and Emma, with a big dog called Connie and small dogs called Monty & Alex. My sister Jamila gave me some math questions. My sister is really good at making fires because she is a scout and she made lots of them.

One day we made a trip to Mersea and had fish and chips. My sister said it was strange, because Mer means sea so Mersea means Sea-Sea. We ate some samphire. Later  we went to pick out own strawberries from a farm and picked too many which was good because we could share them. We tried to roast them with the marshmallows and it wasn't very nice. My sister made Smores. Do you know what they are? If you don't they are roasted marshmallows sandwiched in between two chocolate biscuits. In one night the most I had was two.

I got a small electric shock from the fences. There was a swing on a willow tree and we played on it every day. Our parents let us stay up really late and some nights we put ourselves to bed while they satyed up and chatted with the other adults who were friendly. The day before we left there were some mean boys and when we were going to make a fire in the shared fire pit they came and told us we were too young and asked for our lighter and they made their own fire there so we moved and made another fire near our tent.

On our last day Jamila was really tired because it was really hot. We had to take our things back to the car in the wheelbarrows. Jamila took one too. I want to go back to that farm
