Edinburgh Trip, Thursday!

On Thursday we went to M and Ds Theme Park. There was loads of rides you could go on. When we first got there we had piece and a drink and got give in pink wristbands to go on the rides for free so we didn’t have to pay. We had to go in pairs so we wern’t left alone in the theme park. I was in pair with Lucy and Brydon was in a pair with Bryden! We kind of went around in a foursome and went on rides toghether.The first ride we went on was the Magic carpet it was pretty scary. It felt as though your heart stopped when you were at the top and when you went round it would start again. Me and Bryden went on the tsunami while Brydon and Lucy went and watched us. It wasn’t actually as scary as it looks! I thought the Magic carpet was way more scarier!

I think everybodys favourite ride was the wave swinger, I went on it like a thousand times!

Wednesday in Edinburgh

On Wednesday we went to Edinburgh Castle, There was guards outside Edinburgh Castle and when their socks fell down another guard would come and pull them up. After Edinburgh Castle we went to Camera Obscura was really good because we saw all sorts of eye ilusions but when we got to the we saw the Camera Obscura every one thought that  it was so cool because you could pick up people and make bridges out of paper which cars drove over. After weed been to Camera Obscura we went to Dynamic Earth, at Dynamic Earth there was a time machine ( a lift with glass windows ) we went into the time machine and watched all olf the historical pictures flash before our eyes. Once we arrived in the middle we watched a program on a big screen when we were watching the movie the floor started shaking and we had to go into the glacier room and then intto a room with a big ice block inside it everyone had a feel of the ice block but thought that it was very cold. We went into a spaceship and then into a tropical rain forest.

4 days at Lerwick

On Friday me and my family decided to go to Lerwick campsite for 4 days because Dad wanted to test out the camper van. It has a great swimming pool next it.We took the dog too, My family got to the Leisure Centre we paid for the campsite and we got a key to get in to the toilet block  and washing block. At 6 o’clock me and  mum took my dog out for a little walk because he had been tied up all day.  Me, mum and my dog  took a walk on a little small path near to the camp site.

On Saturday me and my family went in to the town. We had to take the dog because he started barking. The town has lots of shops. When we were coming in to Lerwick we saw a sign that said there was going to be a life boat at the harbour . We went to have a look at the harbour it had music, food and antiques. Dad bought me and my sister a sausage batch. When we had finished looking about we went in to town. We went in to a CD shop, games shop and my favourite shop is the Shetland Book Shop. I bought a Rainbow Magic book called Fiona the Flute Fairy.

On Sunday Me  and Mum  went swimming at the leisure centre . In the afternoon me and my family walked around the coast. I played on Super Mario on the  ds when I got   back.

On Monday Mum went to a course so it only left me, Dad and my sister. After 2 hours a women knocked on the door of our camper van and said that an  HMS Coastguard helicopter would be landing any minute now. A lot of people were standing outside filming the helicopter and  Dad made sure that the dog was okay because the helicopter was really noisy. When Mum came back we went to Tescos and then We went home.
