We thought we should add to our blog since we have been at Torre del Sol, so here goes....
Day 1 - We arrived quite late at the campsite which has the most amazing stuff - a beach right next to it, climbing area and spas.... and mini golf. We arrived and set up after we picked our spot next to the sea (a white space) and we then got water and cooked dinner. It was an amazing site as we listened to the ocean as we went to sleep.
Day 2 - Libby and Daddy went into the supermarket for bread, but returned with news that we could move to a better space RIGHT NEXT TO THE OCEAN!!!! Only 3metres from the beach. We all choose a new blue space (U22) and moved across. We could jump off the rocks and play in the sea with it's big waves which we did all day until we went up to the big lagoon pools and a massive spa bath for 30 people!!
Day 3 - It was Strictly Come dancing day!!! Daddy got us high speed internet and we were really looking forward to it. We played all day with wave dodging, walks up the beach and bike rides. We then settled down for the night (after Daddy's rugby match!) and watched Strictly Come dancing.... Daddy got us pizza from the restaurant and we had sweets for pudding!!! Great day!
Day 4 - It was a work day!!!!! After the bakery, we settled down for some work.... Daddy and Lottie went to explore the Pirate area and then they started work on finding about Davey Jones and Jack Sparrow. Libby and Mummy did a poem about the sea and its magic! We also watched the results show for Strictly!!
Day 5 - We had a really lazy start as we watched INSIDE OUT!!! Coolest film ever! We then started work again, Lottie did a topic about Speed boats and Libby learnt about Bridges. We also had a big lesson on Spanish (for 2hrs!!!!) but we can now speak with 2% fluency. As the weather wasn't great we only played on the beach and had a long walk too
Day 6 - It was Tuesday! and the weather was awesome! We had another work morning, Libby and Daddy learnt about famous artists and made her Dali drawing of a unicorn. Lottie did a big topic on Salvador Dali and then her painting. We then learnt some more Spanish - Hola!!!
Day 7 - Yesterday we played on the beach, had a go at jump show, Daddy got wet! Mummy and us played at wave dodging. In the afternoon we went to the pool, after that we made a restaurant evening for Mummy and Daddy!!! We had another chapter of The Famous Five Run Away with Mummy, then a cool reading half hour before bed - reading The Famous Five and The Enchanted Wood.
Everyday we are writing a diary of our trip..... here is today's version
"Dear Diary, Today we went on a long but enjoyable bike ride to Figueres. Whilst we in Figures, we went to an enormous art museum about Salvador Dali. On the way back, we raced a big storm from the mountains and we won!"
" We took a bike ride to the museum of Salvador Dali, we watched films this morning (Box Trolls and Chronicles of Narnia). We went to get water for the van too,but we were still in our beds!!!!'
Uncle Colin set us a challenge of writing a poem about our trip so far, well we had time in one of our English lessons, so here goes. This one is for you Uncle Colin & Aunty Fi (& helped by Aunty Louisa/Uncle Alex's poetry masterclass last week)
