The Scottish Highland Games

1

We went to the Highland games on Sunday on a 4 day weekend. The Highland games is a Scottish Festival. They have game when you have to carry stone that weigh about 200lbs. Who ever has to gets the farthest for the day will get a prize, but I don’t know what. We walked around tents that had clan names. I bought a wooden dagger and my brother bought a bow and an arrow with pencil eraser on the tip. I had a sausage on a hotdog bun and it was delicious. Then are cousins came and we started playing games on a hill. While we were playing games were listening to Scottish music.

The next day we went to St.Augustine to go see the lights everywhere. We started to walk around and we went into some stores and looked around. We walked around but did not go inside the college that is there. We ate at a place called Columbia. It was a fancy Spanish place. We had sausage, scallops, chicken and cheese, shrimp, cheese, and bread with butter. It was great. After we walked around and I got soft severed ice cream. But after I felt like I was going to explode. We went home I slept in the car on the way back and we got there around 9:00pm. I had a great 4 day weekend.

4th Grade Field Trip – St. Augustine

3

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!!!
