Joke of the Week: Why did the dinosaur cross the road?
On April 29th the Roving Learners were deciding if they should go to the San Gabriel River in Leander, Texas while we were at Home Base. John said it was going to take 45 minutes and it did take a long time to get to our destination. When we got there, we ate lunch right next to a road. John gave me the job of walking Eudog during the hike.
Once we were done with lunch we started to walk up the river. We went under a highway and under the ruins of a little bridge. While we were walking, we saw a man that was fly fishing. We had to walk around him or we would scare away the fish that he was fishing for.
On the hike, Brayden and I switched jobs. Brayden got Eudog and I got Hunter. After some more walking, we got to a body of water where we were going to play. While we were playing, Brayden helped me with Hunter a lot. Hunter wanted to be on a big rock that everyone was on. While she was on the rock, John dunked me into the water. We played for a long time, but then we had to go.
We continued hiking. Up ahead there was a deeper pool of water, where we were going to play. A little while later, we spotted real dinosaur tracks. We saw them on some rocks and they had lots of talons. It was super cool that we got to see Dinosaur tracks
Then we got to an area to play, there was a deep place to swim and there was a shallow place to swim. The Olders played in the deep end with their Littles. Phoenix and I opened our eyes underwater. The water was very clear and didn't hurt at all. Hunter, Brayden and I stayed in the river for a while, while everybody else got out. Hunter wanted to go into the deep end. We did some cool tricks with her. After a while of playing, John gave us some snacks, liked the dried banana and a fig that John gave me. It was very fun, sadly we had to go. We drove to back Homebase and it was a very fun trip.
I thought that the dinosaur tracks were the coolest thing. My favorite part of getting in the water, was getting dunked by John Thoms and playing. It was fun playing with Hunter and opening my eyes underwater. It was so fun. I hope to go back there again.
