We got in by a secret spot and found insects under the rocks.
We wore paddly shoes because another time I’d cut my foot and got my shoes so wet
I didn’t want to walk home.
In the river we throwed the ball and it washed down with Nancy and Oswald-dog chasing
it. Nancy fell in and got her t-shirt wet at the front.
When I (Nancy) fell over in the river I waded back to the bank and started to shiver.
I felt cold, wet and very upset.
When we were walking home we went back through the park and had a big mug
of hot chocolate.
What I like about the river – is that there is a waterfall and you can always hear it,
along with the insects and birds.
