On Thursday, after we finished breakfast we all climbed in the car and headed to Morelia. On the way, we saw lots of cows and horses on the side of the road. In the background you can see big and small green trees. Okay now for the final act: right beside the trees around us we could see the mountains almost hidden from view by light rain clouds.
As soon as we arrived, we parked and headed into Office Depot to get markers, pens, pencils, paper, and a binder, and to try and find Mom a comfy office chair for while they are typing at night. Unfortunately, we were not lucky so we went to the cash register to pay for our items and we got directions to another Office Depot in town. Then we went to have lunch at the McDonald’s next door. They have a huge indoor playground there with two slides and a little center for kids, so of course Elea and I played there. This was really nice because it’s the first playground we’ve had to play in since we left America (except for a kind of little nasty one with a terrible slide that was at a restaurant down by the lake). The food there was just like the kind at home, but Elea complained that her chicken nuggets were too hot, just like she complains about everything. After we ate, we went to the other Office Depot where we were unlucky again, so we started home.
On our way home, Elea’s seat had come loose, probably from Rommel stepping on the latch. When we had to brake on a downhill, her seat went forward straight into the back of Dad’s seat. Don’t worry, she was just shocked no damage done, thank Gaea. After the light turned green, we found a place to pull over and get her seat back in.
On the way back home, I was looking at the memorials people put up on the side of the road when people die there, and I was feeling sad . Still, it was a fun adventure.
I have now written another book report, Enjoy! Love and miss you all. More later.
In this mystery by Caroline Marsh, Michele and her brother Michael are sent to Bath, North Carolina, to spend six weeks of their summer vacation with a friend of their mother. Michele was offered the chance to be a part of a play about Blackbeard that they do every summer in Bath, but her mother tells her she cannot because someone has stolen Blackbeard’s head, a prop they use in the play. She, Michael and the kids they are staying with decide to try and solve the mystery. They begin receiving clues in bottles floating in the bay, but they end up on a wild goose chase around the town of Bath. The play is in such distress that it looks like it might be cancelled, but when the kids finally figure out who the culprit is, the play is saved.
This book is number three in a collection of mysteries Caroline Marsh has written . In this 137 page book, you learn a little history about Bath and about Blackbeard. My favorite part was when Michele solved the mystery. I like this book because it is a history/mystery novel, two of my favorite things, and you will love it, too. If you love mysteries, BUY THIS BOOK!
