Short Essay on a Picnic I Enjoyed

Sometimes, it is important to spend time with family and the best way of it is to have a family picnic! Last year in October we went to my uncle’s house in Delhi. Some of my cousins also live there. During the staying, we all decided to go Okhla for a picnic.

We gathered all the necessary articles and set out. We were all in a jolly mood. We reached the nearest bus stop. Luckily we didn’t have to wait for too long, there came a bus bound for Okhla. We boarded it. Within a half an hour we were at Okhla. We crossed the bridges over the canal. We were now on the bank of Yamuna.

It was a very beautiful sight. The river Yamuna was flowing majestically. The water was making its way gently into the canal through the sluice-gates. We spread our carpet near the river and began to enjoy the scene.

The day’s exertion sharpened our appetites. We, therefore, took our lunch which my aunty had prepared. After the lunch it was time to relax. We all lay down flat on the carpet, to chill out. After that I played cards with my cousins. The card game lasted for long, though my sister had the victory. Now it was getting dark. We all had some tea at a shop and then set out for home. We had to wait for sometime at the bus stop. Soon our bus arrived and we reached home within forty minutes.

I enjoyed the whole day with my family. It was a great experience as we get very few chances like this and I am eagerly waiting for such day come again.
