At 12:00 we went shopping at a local shop in Beacon Bay we bought a white T-shirt and tried it on But it was hard to choose which colour we wanted because Tristan wanted a yellow t-shirt and Holly, Ashley and Me wanted a black one so we just chose a white one. We had no choice...... After we bought our T-shirts my coach asked us "do we want ice-cream? " and we all said "Yes". Tristan bought a vanilla dip, I bought a chocolate dip and Ashley and Holly bought a Flake ice-cream. At about 1:00 we came back and started working, We did alot of work.
