I went on a bush walk with half of my family. We went up, up and up. And you know the lighthouse? You know how there are 250 steps? At the bush walk there were 266 steps. It was a long way up.
We saw a leaf shaped as a star. We found a leaf that has different colours at each site and black spots with it. We found a fern. And then we found a different type of fern that had spots on it that were seeds.
I saw a dog, three or four butterflies, birds, and a worm.
And I saw spiders. I saw bugs too. We saw a spider nest that the babies were born in. There must have been about fifty spiders, I lost count.
We saw a stream. We heard a fantail, crickets, cicadas and a tui. We saw yellow, purple, white, and blue flowers. The weather was first cloudy, then sunny, then cloudy, then sunny.
