My holiday

Screenshot from 2014-07-21 10:32:23.pngOn the 6th of July me and my family went to Black Bridge for the 10th anniversary of my dad’s mums, my grandma passing. We went to a bakery that my dad went to when he was a little boy. We had steamed mince buns and cheese bread sticks.

We went to a beach that I went to when I was 6. It had a nice shore line. It was raining so we had to eat in the car. I never got to eat a cheese bread stick but I did get to have three steamed mince buns.

I did not do much for the rest of the holidays, all I did was work on my dads boat.
