Mexican Girl Diary-Day 5

Feb. 28. 1781

Hola. We are near the end of our journey. We have 1 month exactly until we get to California. And Papa` said that maybe, just maybe, we can get there before that. But, he also said we can't get our hopes up. We just have to pray. The roads are muddy. There has been many rain storms. One of the wagons that had a married couple in it fell into the river when we where crossing the unsturdy bridge. I'm sad for thier families. We are supposed to get there on March 28th, 1781. Hopefully. I pray the rest of our journey will be safe.

Until then,

Oh I love the covered wagon ! I can't imagine traveling in those over the rough terrain and going so slowly ~ how hard, long and tiring! Thanks for continuing to share your journal with us Joy ~ I enjoy it !:-)Have a good weekend!
