CAMPING IN FOREST

With the hectic weekend passing by, we decided to plan something as a source of enjoyment and refreshment. You often need a good and healthy break to freshen up your mind like an invigorate tea cues gives to a laborer. Well, after successful planning we packed our back packs with snacks and started our journey.

The sun rose in the pool of crimson and gold, spilling light all over the land and the white clouds. Fresh air filled my lungs and I felt refreshed and exhilarated. The breathtaking scenery captivated everyone. After a long journey to the forest, we reached there and our family started to find a suitable place for camping. After the long discussion with the family members we settled near the pond, which was bathed in a golden hue by the gentle sunlight and the water was as clear as crystal. I liked the mesmerizing view, so I stopped and was fixated in fascination. While camping I found myself on a green carpet full of colored flowers and grass. It was like paradise created by Allah on earth. We talked with each other, I and my cousins plucked the beautiful flowers and the juicy fruits from nearby tree. The magnificent trees around it were beautifully dazzled, embracing the sky and energizing. We all cherished the calm melodies of birds. We even caught two pigeons. We climbed on trees like monkeys enjoying every bit of our lives.

But enjoying the forest we kids forgot that we had ventured so far from our camp. Terror seized us all. Frightened thoughts raced through our mind. We walked here there to see where our camp was, then we saw a little fire near the tree. We went there and saw that there were some other people camping. We were too scared to ask them that if they could make a call to our parents. But they were too kind that they came to us and asked from where were we and all the information. Then the uncle dialed the number of my mom and she picked up at once. And then my parents picked us up from there and we thanked those strangers and offered them to join us.

It started getting late as the sun set, the few thin strips of clouds on the horizon turned shimmering gold. The sunset was glorious, all rosy and salmon pink. I wished I could stay in that paradise for whole my life, without any worries. We packed up our all things and got back to our car. It was getting dark all over the forest. We were back carrying the most beautiful memories of a wonderful day we had spent in the midst of the nature. That forest and camping was like a fantasy world and putting it in my words would never be enough. I could surely say that it was best day of my life!
