My westward journal #17

8-10-1820

Dear journal,

We are almost there! Yay! The surroundings are beautiful. Our wagon train is now in a lush valley with a lot of berries. Berries! Berries! Berries! I’m so excited! I haven’t had berries in a long time. Also, the weather is perfect. It’s not to hot, and not to cold either! Right now, the sun is high in the sky and there’s a breeze blowing. I’m excited to pick some berries! I hope they are blackberries. I went to pick some with Jasper and guess what?! They were blackberries! They were so good! Father and some of the other men decided that we are to stay here for a couple of days to rest and pick a lot more berries! Yay!
