I went to St.Augustine on my field trip.   We got to go the hospital that I hated.  It was so disgusting.  But I’m not going to talk about it.  We went to the Colonial Quarter.  Also the fort and a tram ride around the city.

When we got to the Colonial Quarter we got to see a little house.  And we got to practice shooting a gun in a army line.  That was really fun.  We got to see what the stuff that people used back then.  Like kitchen stuff, and to see what they used to go to the shower.  They used a big bowl.

In the fort we got to see a canon demonstration.  The sound was loud.  Every one was scared.  There was a little room with beds and the beds were filled with hay.

And the tram ride was my favorite.  We went to Flagler College where they had a cool spiky ball fence.  They were used a long time ago if pirates tried to come on to land, the chain with the balls would line the shore and the balls would break the ship and the ship would sink.When we were on the tram we also saw a canon ball stuck in the wall to.Also we saw a statue of Ponce De Leon,he is 4 foot 11.[Small]

And I’m not going to talk about the hospital.

And for the rest the rest was FFFUUUNN!!!

This is a cannon ball stuck in the wall.
This is my class practicing shooting at the Colonial Quarter.
This is me with the spike balls in front of Flagler College.
This is me with my class with the guy who shot the cannon.
in the background you can see the statue of Ponce De Leon. That statue is actual life size and he is SHORT!

  1. I’m glad you didn’t talk about the hospital. Sounds terrifying. 4’11” is short for a dude.
    The shooting guns part sounds like minecraft for adults and I like it.

  2. I think it is sometimes a very good idea not to write about something that is gross. I agree with Brendan. Some things are better left unsaid.

    I really like this essay. I learned a few things… including that there is a cannon ball stuck in a wall up there. I never knew that. Thanks for letting me know!

  3. Wow! I’m impressed that your class got to practice shooting and to see a cannon get shot off! That is not a normal school day is it? The pictures of your trip are great, and you write very well. Perhaps you should make your own blog so you won’t need to use your mom’s…lots of kids do.

    I really enjoyed this post, and I hope you will keep up the blogging.
