This is where the petrified forest is.

Mum , Matt and I went on a walk to Petrified Forest. We started at a tiny little fishing village called Profitis Ilias.  We stopped the campervan and had lunch.  It was really pretty.   There were more tiny boats than houses.  Dad and Adam followed with the campervan – it was a dirt road but ok.

On the walk there were a lot of spiders, sometimes we had to break their web because it was in the middle of the path. We took turns to break the web but we tried really hard not to break them and go another way.  There were so many.

To go to Petrified Forrest we had to follow little red dots.

For about 30 minutes we could not find the red dots, mum thought we were lost.  We just found an enormous field of onions.  A few minutes later we found the red dots again!!!… The spiders that were on the path were huge!!   It took us about 2:30 hours to reach  the Petrified Forrest. After the walk we all went for a swim – the water is so clear!!!…

Millions of years ago, the petrified forest was a big forest of palm trees!  Now, there are just stone tubes where the trunks were, or a big hole in the rock filled with water.   It’s called a Geopark which is a place where stones or special rocks are protected because they are old and important.  In the holes the water made loud booming noises.

There are also fossil shells stuck into some of the rocks.   We saw a few on the walk too.

Just after we came out of the water Mum and Dad made beautiful pizzas.  Dad made the dough, and mum made the tops.

They were so nice. ( mmm…) and for pudding Adam did home made salted caramel pop corn!!!.

It was also a beautiful view throughout the window, we also saw a cruise ship lit up.

I love the imprint that the shell has created. The seaside is always the best place to be!

You sound brave with the huge spiders. The popcorn looks nice, do you know how he made it?

No but I will ask. It’s his special recipe. Katie x

Pop the popcorn with oil as usual. Sauce – 2/3 cup sugar into a hot pan, melt on low heat, don’t stir. Add few pinches salt, then big teaspoon butter. Mix. Add half teaspoon bicarb, will puff up. Turn gas off. Pour popcorn into pan and coat, put on tray and let it go brittle. Break up and eat! Adam.
