I could smell a faint smell of smoke in the air when I woke. I got out of my sleeping bag and left the tent to see what was burning. As I got out I realised that it was only mum, she had burnt the toast. Then I saw dad and my sister get out of their tent, I guess he smelt it to because he was looking around nervously.  After that mum made another pile of toast for us. Mum, dad and my older sister who had decided to come camping with us for the last time (since she was moving out) sat at the table. After breakfast my sister and I asked if we could go on a hike mum and dad said yes, as long as we were back for lunch and we didn’t go near the water fall. We agreed and the left with smiles on our faces.

We were walking around for while then I looked at my watch. It was almost time for lunch I run up to my sister who had wondered ahead and told her it was time to start walking back. At this point my sis thought it would be a good idea to point out that she didn’t know how to get back and thought I did but I thought she did and sooo….. We were lost! Then I started to panic and so did my sister. We were lost in the bush with no water, no food and no way of getting home. Then I heard something from inside a bush next to me. I told my sister and she said it was nothing and it was just my imagination. Suddenly a man jumped out of the bush. He told us not to be scared and that he could help us find our way home. At first my sister said no she didn’t trust him and to be honest neither did I, but soon he convinced my sister that he was actually a local and just wanted to help us. Well at this point we had nothing to lose and my sister was pretty much convinced so we followed him.

It was about a twenty minuet walk but soon enough we could see a bon fire in the distance my sister and I started running towards it. It was the camp site, we thanked the strange man and mum invited him to stay for dinner but he had to go, so we said our goodbyes. When he left we ran into our mother’s arms we were home safe. We stayed at the site for two more days but let’s just say neither me nor my sister went on any more hikes without our parents.
