Summer - 2016 - San Fransisco

Hi!!! I'm sorry that I've not gone on my blog and made new posts but I've been so busy with things this summer 2016! This post is about what I've done during the Summer so far.

Part 1

San Francisco

The road trip to San Francisco was 2 DAYS long. I  felt so carsick!!!! We stayed in a hotel for the night then continued in the morning. Most of the time in the car I was singing songs to the radio to cheer myself up.

Fisherman's Wharf

At Fisherman's Wharf we saw sea lions, street performers, and we went to this awesome place where they sold clam chowder in a bowl of sour dough bread! At that restaurant ( Boudin ) I ate ham and cheese with bacon for lunch. For my drink I had strawberry soda and it exploded!! It was quite funny when that happened (because I shook it on purpose!)

Lombard St. (Crookedest St.) 

The climb up to Lombard St. was so, so, so steep! But, it was worth the climb. Being up there was awesome!!!

China Town

In China Town the main highlight for me was the dim sum there. We had lunch at a famous dim sum restaurant. It was famous because Obama ordered take-out there and went to pick it up himself in person. I'm not sure of this but, I think that also Stephen Hawking went there because on a board there was a picture of him there. So we waited for around an hour and a half to be seated and then the food came......... DUN DUN DUN!!!!!! It turned out that we had ordered way too much food! We ordered sooooo much food that we had enough to eat for dinner too! So that's what we did, we had it for dinner. :)

Tram

When we got on the tram, I was a bit scared at first. Partly because we were going down a hill and then going back up! All the kids weren't allowed to go on the first cabin because they might fall out of the tram so I was quite sad. : (

Muir Woods

Muir Woods was definitely my favorite part of the trip. All the trees that I saw made me overwhelmed!!! The were so tall and so big!!! We were sadly not allowed to touch the trees because they may have ticks in them. I was soon happy because I got a bingo badge!! Basically if you find all the the objects on your card in a line you can get the badge!

This is what we basically, did in San Francisco this summer but, this wasn't all that we did during this summer we also went to Vancouver but, I'm going to put that in my next post!

The Aviary

At my school, the Year 4's went on a field trip to Hong Kong Park. I thought it was very interesting so I'm going to tell you about it. ( By the way, this post is also for my homework.)

When we arrived at Hong Kong Park, we had to stay in our groups with our parent helper. While waiting for the other classes to arrive, I just looked at the fountain. It looked like the water was a wall, like a curtain. As we made our way through the park, we passed the pond. In the pond there were a few turtles and  lots of fish! We also saw one or two water skaters, though. Our parent helper was also asking us questions about the pond and we noticed that some fish were better at camouflaging than others because of the color of their scales. We also noticed that the fish would come close to us, as if they wanted food! I think that the fish were very, very hungry!

After getting to the park and eating our snack, we headed to the aviary. The aviary is basically a big green house, but not really a green house. It has trees and stuff like that but, humans put them there. Inside I saw lots and lots of birds, some of which had very colorful feathers, but I also saw some that had feathers that were rather dull. I liked more the birds with the brightly colored feathers, although I think they felt a bit awkward because we were all staring at them. Although they were very beautiful and graceful, some of the birds pooped on us! Naughty, naughty birds!

Since we'd spent quite a long time in the aviary, we started heading to the place where we were going to have our lunch. We then ate our lunch and played hand games, told stories, and other fun stuff!

After that we went back to the school in the bus. I thought it was quite fun to go there and I want to go again.

So, have you been to the Hong Kong Aviary or Hong Kong Park before? If you have, what was your experience? What was your favorite place? If you haven't been there before, I'd recommend going.
