Kayaking at Kaitawa

“Yes today is kayaking time” this is the best camp  that I’ve been too. “This is the private lake that we paddle the kayaks in. It looks awesome”. Kane, Connor and me were on a team trying to capsize some of room 20 and wet miss Hill, it was exciting.

 I had fun swimming in kayaks.But Annabel, Ryleigh and Ashleigh were brave enough to swim and jump out of the kayaks by capsizing. I wonder if logan, Luke, Jared, Connor and the girls will stay in the lake with Kane and me.

“Finally time to get out” said I I’m starting to freeze out here”, Annabel, Ashleigh and Ryleigh were cold. Connor, Jared and me were sort of fine but, Kane was really fine. After we walked back to camp the parents had a hot milo  waiting for us. After we had a hot milo we played friendly games with each other .

My experience of splash planet


“During the holidays my family and I went to splash planet for the 5th time, thanks Mum & Dad”. Soon as we got there with my family there was a long line of people waiting to get in but the line was going really quick. But the line was filled with people  holding small bags and they had to do bag checks that’s probably causing the people to go slow.

“Finally were in splash planet I was tired of standing up. “mum can we sit next to the pirate pool please mum” “OK” “Yay”. My family and I went next to the lazy river and the pirate ship but  it was a little bit boring because the bucket was not working at the pirate ship.So as I got to minigolf people were stalking me Just because I told them to hurry up cause they where taking so long, that happens pretty much all the time.

“wow 1st shot on the windmill yes that was so awesome” After being staked by the people that was like a tiger that I told off because they were being silly on one pitch.  after minigolf I went in the pools because they were trying to find me.
“ Whoa that was close” because I hid Underwater and nearly drowned but I knew they went away because I had goggles.Then suddenly the there was  water being squirted at people and me and it was from the pirate ship. Then I went back to where my family was and covered myself up with my towel. I laid down and looked at the tree house with the slide.This was a happy and fantastic day at splash planet.
