Bingham- Nottingham

Monday morning I woke up had breakfast and a clean shower. I got dressed, pack my gear up and hopped in the car for a trip to Nottingham. The whole trip ended up taking 2-3 hours long to get there, we did stop for toilet breaks and stuff so it took even longer. When we got to Nottingham our family relatives were outside waiting for us to arrive, we got our bags out of the boot and walked inside. Kevin was cooking sausages and hamburgers on the BBQ, they were really tasty and juicy there were so many I had about 3-4. That night I had to sleep downstairs on a blow up double bed while everyone else slept up stairs, I recon it was better downstairs because it was a lot quieter.

St Briavels castle

Today it's my turn as navigator we drove down along the beach to St michaels castle, the we kept on driving to lands end. At lands end we watched a movie about the air sea rescue joint and what they do, we also had lunch there to I had a hotdog with tomato ketchup. We kept on traveling to Bristol where we crossed a bridge to go through the border to Wales. Soon we reached St briavels castle where we stayed the night. That night we went out for tea to a pub called The George, for tea I had nachos with a bowl of meat with three different types of beans and chilling, it was really nice. We then walked the block to the castle where we slept.

The next morning we woke up and travelled on to penzance, where we travelled for around 6 hours. We were so bored. Mum was the navigator today but mum said that tomorrow was my turn.
When we got to penance we made our beds and look for a place where we could have tea.

The London dungeons and The Wizard of OZ

This morning I woke up, had my breakfast. We jumped on a boat and hopped off at bankside and walked along the river to have a snack at a place called EAT. Then travelled on to the dungeons were we bought tickets got a photo taken of our family, what we did is we walked through the rooms to different things. Just as we started walking through not even the start we walked through a door way when this noise started screaming and an arm popped out of nowhere.
