Mountain Valley Camp Moment In Time 2016

Suddenly we pull over in mountain valley camp I get out of the car and the first thing I here is the
amazing sound of the river and smelt the fresh water flowing downstream. Oliver, Charlie and I set up the tent and put our gear in. The first  activity was rafting we got our wetsuit on and walked down to the bus we got in and sat down the bus stunk of dirt but I got use to it. It was extremely bumpy at one point I thought the bus was going to tip. We pulled up and the guides gave us safety gear and told us how to hold the ores and  how to hold on and also how to paddle. We got in the raft and set off. The guide kept saying “FORWARD PADDLE FORWARD” PADDLE!!!! Then I saw the first set rapids. We held on and swooshed down ahhhhhhhhhh everyone screamed.  An hour later of more rapids and laughter we passed another raft  and screamed “see you later chicken nuggets!!!!” We stopped to have lunch and got into our rafts we once again set off and we started paddling the guide let us have a quick swim and then swim back to our raft. We paddled and paddled and came to a stop we were aloud to jump off a big rock and splash into the water. We got in the raft and then and paddled  and paddled  and finally we stopped and got out it was so where'd stepping on dry land. We played a game and I lost first  round. We got back on the bus and drove back. We got out of our damp wetsuits and had some food. We went glow worming and then had dinner we got into our pyjamas and went to bed and that was only the first night.
