Once when I was staying at Sheffield with my Grandma, and it was a beautiful sunny day. We had been looking for a exploring stream, but also one that we could enjoy the lovley sunshine. Then I asked if we could go to Padley Gorge. We went there, and it was beautiful! The swirly, twirly water was shallow and deep, so my younger 5 year old brother could paddle. The stream is in the middle of a valley overlooking the rocky ravines and paths. Not to mention the breathtaking waterfall!
After having a paddle, we all decided to go up one of the rocky paths. After walking for fifteen minutes, we came across a water spring leading down to the stream we had explored earlier. We followed it up, and where the spring started, we found a saucepan that someone had hung on the end of a tree. My little brother filled it up, watering all the nearby trees. After that we went down the hill back to the path. I saw some rocks on the way the car covered in moss. They were Lovely. I sat down on a rock. I thought: "I'm telling all my friends about this place. I'ts sooo lovely." And that is what i'm doing. Five star place, and all free!
