“Are we there yet”? I say.
“No not yet,” say’s Mum and Dad. It feels like we have been in the car for hours. How long have we got to go until we get to Taupo?. 1 hour later,
“OMG” I say. I grab my headphones and listen to some music for half an hour. Suddenly I fall asleep. I wake up.
“Are we there yet?”
“Yes” says Dom.
We get to our batch in Kinloch and unload our luggage.
“Hey Dad” ,I ask “can I help you and Dom get the boat ready for tomorrow”.
“Yes sure”, said Dad. I get my rod ready for tomorrow, I put my pink lightning bolt lower on. Mum calls us inside.
“Dinner Time”, she says.
Yum yum, thanks Mum. We eat our dinner and then sit down and watch some tv. After that I get ready for bed.
12 hours later.....The sun is beaming into our room, it’s blinding me. I get up and have breakfast. Then get changed. I grab the iPad and sit it on the boat, “
That’s all I need” I say to Mum. I jump into the car ready to go fishing. We get down to the marina and get the boat in the water. Dom and I hop on the boat and get our life jackets on. While Dad is parking the car, and Mum is holding the rope. Dom starts the motor then Dad arrives,we are off.
Dad take us to our direction where we want to fish. Dad slowly stops the boat, Dom and I get our rods out and ready to go. We wait till Dad tells us that we can let our lines out. Dom lets his line out first then me. We sit down and wait and wait. I grab the iPad while I wait suddenly, I hear the rod going zzzzzzzz. I jump up
“who’s rod is that?” I ask dad.
Yours, “yay” I say. I grab my rod and start winding in. I can feel my arm starting to get really sore. I really want the first fish so I give it my all. I see the trout swimming to the top of the lake. There it is Mum say’s. “Dom grab the net”, Dad says. Dom swoops the net into the water. “Whoooo I got it !” he yells.
I grab the measuring board and we measure the trout, it is way bigger enough. We kill the fish and sit it in a bin. Then we put our rods out again. We start over again. Dom wants to get a fish this time.
Here are some photos from when I was there.
