Van break down!

Today we moved to a different campsite and saw a road runner! And a old rusty wagon. But the van broke down so we had to get a tow truck. It was really cool how used a hook to pull the van on the tow truck.  Then we got in the tow truck. A little while later we arrived at a hotel and orderd a pizza 🍕and went to bed. The next morning we went to a Starbucks and did home work while dad fixed the van. Then we drove for a few hours then arrived at a new hotel.At the hotel they had a pool and hot tub! That was really fun. Then we went to a Thai restaurant for dinner. Then we blogged and went to bed. P.s. The government shut down really affected us the national  parks were free. The bad thing is the bathrooms 🚽 were closed so we had to go in the woods which is really unfair. The end.

Death valley 💀

On the 30 we went to death valley. What really  surprised me was how windy  and cold it really was at night. We camped there for three  nights in the camper van🚙. The first day we went on the golden canyon trail and saw the red cathedral. (The red cathedral is  a rock shaped like a cathedral and is bright red.) The rocks on the hike were beautiful they were all shapes and sizes. They were also most of the colors of the rainbow 🌈red Orange  green and purple.Then we we stopped shortly after that to take a look at the salt flats. And yes the salt flats are actually made of salt.The salt flats stretches  many miles   think  miles of salt! And it is all organic. The salt flats  are remarkable  because they are 282 feet below sea level ! The lowest point in North Aamerica.

In the morning we got up and ate cinnamon rolls for breakfast. Yum ! Then I fished flower petals out of the pool. My feet got soaking wet. Then we went about our own business . Then we left the house and went to the trail head to eat lunch. For lunch I had a cheese roast beef and turkey  sandwich. Yum !. Then we went on a 2 mile hike up in the mountains and the path was very narrow. It was really blustery but we still got a good view. Then we went back to the van and drove back to the house and it started  raining  ☔ in the desert! It is incredibly rare for it to rain in the desert so we were really lucky to have seen it raining. It was really awesome. next we drove to a place were Charlie got his hair cut and my dad went to a hardware store after that  we picked my mom up at the grocery store and drove back to the house. Once we got back to the house I played Banana grams . Then I blogged on my new kindle. we ate steak  for dinner. After dinner I watched a vet program on  the television 📺In our room . (When I grow up I whant to be a veterinarian. ) at the end of the very tiring day I brushed my teeth and got into the bed. And that was my day in the desert. The end.

The sight seeing trip 

Tuesday we went to Port Townsend  we went to lots of shops here are a few of my favorites. The first one I liked was a gemstone place with all the rocks gems and minerals you could imagine it was cool the other place I liked was a marina place only thing that’s really bad about that place is the coffee shop they make the worst drinks as especially the hot chocolate gross. Then we played on a model pirate ship and took a picture off me and my brother in a face cut out of a seal and pirate I am the seal and Charlie is the pirate .wensday we got ready to leave and we went shopping.
