Hi everyone! Camp PineLake has been going great, and it's been fun staying in a cabin with the rest of our friends. Today when we went to the dining hall to eat breakfast, I decided to say hi to some of my new friends from cabin MarshRidge. I found Anna and Mindy sitting in a table on the far end of the room. When I walked over to their table, they were enjoying their orange juice while giggling about something. I got a little curious, so I had to check it out. They abruptly stopped chatting when I walked over. "I didn't know they had hot chocolate here!" Anna said. "What are you guys giggling about?" They looked at each other, and realized they had to tell this story. "Okay, so yesterday we were so excited about going to camp, that we forgot to clean up, and on top of that, we just weren't the tidiest bunch of girls from the start! So anyways, this morning I wanted to find this awesome sweater that would be great for hiking today, but since I hadn't really unpacked, and I was in a hurry, I had to rip up my whole suitcase to find it. Well, you get the point... the room was an utter MESS! I knew I was going to clean it up before breakfast but... well.... I didn't" I was confused. "What's all the remorse about a messy room?" "We haven't finished telling the story yet!" Mindy continued. "We were just about to leave when all of the sudden, a rap sounded on the door! We opened the door, and it was the inspector lady, Marger Pittz! We were all so worried!!! We stepped back and looked at our cabin, and all we could do was brace ourselves. Marger puckered up her lips and took a big breath to begin her lecture! She was outraged, and she went on and on and on about how old we are, and our responsibilities." I was a little surprised to hear that this was what they had been giggling about, but I was glad they told me because I thought I should warn the others about this Marger Pittz woman. It just doesn't seem fair how she came in unannounced like that! "Well, I need to grab some breakfast, so nice talking to you!" Needless to say, I quickly forgot about Marger Pittz as I finished breakfast and got ready for today's activities! Kaya, Julie, Angela, and Kirsten were excited to go hiking. I decided to go do some volleyball, and we all split up to our own camp events and activities.
Now I'll hand it over to Kaya who went Hiking!
Hi everyone, today we went hiking up Mount Winnik on the campsite. It was a lot bigger then I thought it would be! Lucky for the rest of us, I brought a canteen filled with water and a peanut adventure bar for all of us to split. Everyone thanked me for being prepared, and I was just glad to be able to help. Julie, Angela, and I focused on climbing up the mountain while Kirsten had to stop to examine every beautiful flower she saw, so she didn't make it up nearly as fast as the rest of us. Once she found a rare Winnik climbing beetle! When we all made it to the top, the view was breathtaking! When we got back all we wanted to do was rest. I was too tired to do horseback riding today, so I'll be sure to do some tomorrow.
But for now, I'm going to hand it over to Kit, who went horseback riding today.
Hi everybody, Kit here. Marie Grace and I went horseback riding today. She was a bit more experienced then I was! It was still a lot of fun though. When we got to the camp stables, Mrs. Fraanz the stable manager (who had obviously dyed her hair), helped us get riding helmets on and show us the trails. It was a beautiful day, and riding a horse turned out to be quite fun. Mrs. Fraanz said the horse's name was speckles. She was very nice and Mrs. Fraanz said she loves campers! The best part about it was when we got to the Winnik creek! It was hidden under the shrubs a bit, but it was such a beautiful place. The creek water was refreshing when we dipped our toes in it. Mrs. Fraanz brought a water bottle with a filter with her, and after explaining that you should never drink creek or pond water without a special filtered bottle, she let us each take a sip. It was very good water! The only crazy thing I tried to do was tickle Speckles, but she wasn't that ticklish! It was a great day though!
If you have any ideas on what we should do for the talent show, comment on our posts, say it in the chat box, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It all sounds very exciting!!!
