On Saturday me and my dad went to lake heron for the night lake heron is a beautiful place. First we went to the fishing shop to get some fishing lures they had hard,big,squishy,small,sparkly and all other ones I went to look at the gooey ones they were so stretchy and soft there was on with blue glitter that I was playing witch I thought the glitter was in the fish but I was wrong the glitter got all over me. Mum went to the supermarket and got the food off the list we had given her while we were at the fishing shop. We got food that was light to carry but gave us lots of energy. We got a couple of packs of food that you just added water to so we didn't have to carry alot of ingredients.
It takes about an hour and 30 minutes to get there from Christchurch.as we were driving on the gravel the car got really dirty and there was a big cloud of dust behind us. We walked to our campsite we have this certain spot that we go to. We set up the 2 man tent and we had a little fish,then we had spaghetti and sausages for dinner,apple pie for dessert and a couple of roasted marshmallows. Then we went to sleep we were about to play hangman on my whiteboard but the whiteboard pen ran out we were so disappointed .
was a weird day because in the morning it was foggy then clear,foggy then clear,foggy then clear about 10 times. But it became beautiful in the end. We had pancakes for breakfast, chocolate and 2 marshmallows. We went fishing again I caught a big fish as big as my arm. Winding it in hurt my hand. My hands were so cold that I couldn't even hold the fish. We put the fish back in the water so it can go back to its family. That's really all we did all day.
I showed respect because I respected nature by bringing all our rubbish home with us and not putting it in the lake or leave it around the campsite. Also active thinking because we had to think about what we took in our bags because we had to carry it to our campsite. Lastly Community because I put the fish back so other people could catch it.
