Camping It was a misty morning when we left our house, and as soon as we walked out of the door you could instantly smell the fresh dew on the grass. We were heading to Kelling Heath, which is located near Sheringham, Norfolk. I was so excited that I could hardly keep still for the whole car journey! It took us about an hour to get to the campsite but the journey went really quickly because we were playing games and observing the beautiful scenery around us. The sun was shining really strongly on our backs as we were setting up the newly purchased tent. Hours passed quickly and we had made some new friends who sent up camp next to us. They had a couple of children: Nicola who was 14yrs old and Matthew who was 9yrs old. This family had a massive old-fashioned style tent. It had little windows and curtains, and a door, which caused us a bit of trouble because the zip wouldn't undo straight away! As everyone was settling down, I was admiring the amazing scenery and atmosphere around us. As I was gazing up into the blue cloudless sky and smelling the clean fresh air when I spotted some birds, which were flying high above me, so I threw out some bread that was left over from an earlier snack. ...read more.


The food was gorgeous, and you could smell and hear the sizzling sausages and the sound of eggs being fried. We all had chores to do after lunch; I got the worst one-washing up! I brought all the dirty items to this shiny basin, which smelt freshly clean with a sweet fragrance that was attached to an outside wall, sheltered by a roof. After washing everything up I returned to the tent and placed them in a stackable trolley to allow them to dry. We decided to go out and see what entertainment was on at the camp village, so we put everything in the tent and zipped the tent door up and made sure everything was secure. My family and I headed down to the camp village. To get there, we had to walk down this stony little lane with overgrown wild flowers hanging into the country lane. By now the sun was setting and the sky was a mixture of reds and oranges fading into the horizon. In the far off meadows you could see and hear some children cheering after scoring a goal against their friends in a game of football. ...read more.


After all enjoying the meal we all decided that it was time to return to the tent. You could hardly see anything as we started walking back to the tent; it was so hard you couldn't see one foot in front of another. But it was ok because further down the road were some lamps that lit the path in front. As we walked back down the stony lane, the flickery lights continued to guide us to our tent. It was so quiet to the earlier atmosphere, here it was quiet because all the visitors were laying dormant til morning sleeping warmly in their sleeping bags. We got back to the tent and went to get changed in the toilets nearby. As we walked there and back we tiptoed passed numerous tents and tried to walk quietly above the sound of the crunching leaves. As I walked back I was listening to all the sounds of the wind. When I eventually got back into my sleeping bag, I laid there thinking about the day and enjoying it from waking up really early to relaxing around and listening to the sounds of nature. I opened my eyes and I looked around and all i could see were the shadows of the various objects lying lifeless around the tent, I could also hear the owls calling AND my dad snoring!
