A child goes off to camp,
Say’s bye to mum and dad.
Him and his group go on a bush walk,
Their all ready,
They go through dark caves,
explore never before seen boundaries
The place where they were going off to was, known for massive taniwha’s
“Hey mum we have a field trip tomorrow, we’re staying for 2 nights at the batch our science teacher owns somewhere up North” Jack said to his mum in excitement entering the kitchen in his screwed up and muddy school uniform. The batch they were going to for their science trip was near a well known place where people would find massive taniwha’s, and Jack was the type of boy to be getting into mischief quite a lot. His friends and himself would always constantly talk about getting to see a real life taniwha. “Oh no, no, no you are not going!” Jenny, Jack’s mother replied to him. “BUT MUM!” Jack whined. His mum knew exactly why he wanted to go, but she refused.
They talked at dinner about it, and after a long period of time Jenny had to sit and listen to Jack whining and moaning about wanting to go, she finally gave in. “YES, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you” Jack said to his mum repeatedly over and over again. “I’ll just be upstairs packing my bags” he said as he was running up the stairs after dumping his dishes into the sink. Him and his mother lived alone so the house was usually quiet.
Jack couldn’t sleep at all because the only thing going through his mind was getting to see the taniwha’s. He just couldn’t wait.
The next day came and he was all packed and excited about the field trip, mum would have to be alone for two whole nights which was pretty sad for Jack but he just put that behind his mind. “C”MON WE’RE LATE JACK” one of his mates said from the car they were going in. Jack quickly kissed his mother's old wrinkly forehead and scurried off quickly to the car. The car was packed with loads of the students but still had enough space for me. Mr Harris our science teacher sang songs and made up riddle’s for our entertainment in the car, to be honest he wasn’t that good.
When we had arrived it had been a good one and a half hours of sitting stiffly in the car. We all loaded off, and all you could hear were groans and moans of how bright the sun was, and how relieved they were to be out of the car. Everyone grabbed their bags and shoved them into their batches they would be staying in. Then we would all have to line up outside ready for our bush walk. “NO, NOT A BUSH WALK” Amy one of the girls said. “What do you mean we’re going to go and see the taniwha’s” said Peter to her, one of my mates. She rolled her eyes and whispered “typical boys.”
Then not long later we were off, after a good 20 minutes of non stop walking the sun started to hide behind the thick dark grey clouds. My legs started to feel really exhausted and I was sweating like a pig. Me and my mates ditched the class soon after 30 minutes of walking with them. We were off to find the taniwha’s.
We walked down a very steep and slippery hill, everyone was talking and laughing then all of a sudden Peter slipped and started sliding down, all you could hear were the boys laughing, but when he had stopped we saw that he was badly hurt. He had cuts and bruises, and had a twisted ankle. The boys and I were freaking out and weren't quite sure what to do. So we carried him, trying to look for a way back, but all we walked into were very large tree stumps.
Now we were stuck in the middle of the large and soon to be dark forest all alone with no food, only water and an injured person. Dawn fell, and we were all panicking but there was nothing we could do, but keep walking and to try and find our way back.

Saturday, October 13, 2012
These holidays have been a mix of drastically boring, and surprisingly fun! The first week of the holidays were extremely boring. Then the second week hit me by surprise, it's almost finished which went by really fast. On Monday our family spent the whole evening planing out the following day, what we would do for our family day out we have on the first Tuesday of each month. This was the first Tuesday of October.
Our family day out started off with a loud bang at the door. Our older brother was coming home from work, as a security at sylvia park. I woke up had a shower then got changed. Then one by one we all sat on the bed facing the mirror ready to do our hair. I was first straightening, then my eldest sister, then my brother, then my other sister, then my mum. It was all in a strange order. Then when we were ready we got into the car, and sorted out the order of our day.
First we were off to Pakuranga movies. The girls watched Pitch Perfect, while the boys watched Diary of a Wimpy Kid. We bought our food and then we were off into the cinema. There were loads of other girls, like a massive scout group. The movie started and we were all silent. Laughs came from here and there when something hilarious came on the screen. But I reckon my sister Patricia was the loudest.
When the movie had finished we came outside to find my dad and my little brother waiting outside. Their movie finished before ours. So then we were off to Botany to buy me some shoes, and clothes for church. On the way we stopped at a cute little shop that was called 'What A Girl Wants'. It had the most cutest dresses ever!!! I found myself 2 or 3. Then we carried onto Botany.
We were going to K-Mart to buy my shoes. I saw such cute clothes but I could only choose 2. I chose a cute top and 2 cute flat's. Then we went off to Carl's Jr in Glen Innes. Later on after we had a good chit-chat about our lives and what would be happening for our family, we went back home and got ready to go for a walk around the Bay. We then got ready to walk from St Heliers, to Mission Bay and we were off AGAIN! -_-
When we got there me and my sisters walked off ahead while the rest of the family were long behind us. As I was walking along the sandy beach of Mission Bay I was also watching the beautiful sunset. I loved the view and wished I could have never left. But we ended up having to walk right up to the end where the park was. While I was on the swing going back and forth and being able to see the night sky, it felt like I was in starlight heaven. The whole day was extravagant and I wish it could happen all over again.
