199.
Yesterday, I went with my family for a picnic at the beach. We took lots of food, because we're all
greedy! First of all, we packed chocolate to eat in the car on the way to the beach. For the first course,
we took soup and loaf of bread. For the main course, we decided on chicken salad
sandwich for each person, along with rice. Finally, we packed a melon big enough for everyone to
get slice. Of course, we also took tea and coffee, and litre of ice-cream.
It seemed like a huge quantity of food, but unfortunately we ate it all in the car! By the time we got to the beach,
there was nothing left.
200. When we got to the beach, people were already there, and we couldn't find a place to sit down.
There were a empty spaces near one end of the beach, but they were a long way from the sea. We walked
along the beach for a while, but we didn't have fun because we kept bumping into people.
Finally, we decided to get back in the car and go down the coast to the next beach. This was much better; there were
only a families on the beach, so there was more room to spread out our things. Because we had eaten
so food in the car, all we wanted to do was lie down, and after a minutes we were all dozing
happily in the sun.
