I feel the rough knots dragging me to the stale wood.
I  hear my group think of ideas how to grab the rope without touching the bark.
I smell the warm breeze bringing me such joy.  

I feel my shoes sink down into the water and splash my bare legs.

I hear rooms 1/2 laughing and giggling watching us dance.
I smell the baking from outside spreading the whole lounge with cookies and cakes mm Yummy!!

I see the huge, silver coated, flowery statue standing in the middle of the gorge walk.
I hear bird noises, kids chattering and others whistling.
I feel tired, sore, breathless and sore
I smell food, berries and big trees.
