Trip to Waiheke Island

In the holiday’s I went to Waiheke Island. My family and I went there for a family trip. We went there to see spectacular species.

First we woke up in the morning and packed our stuff and our food to go to Half Moon Bay near Orakei. We could go for free because my dad bookmarked on Monday. We spend my mums deposit, it was 100 dollars for 2 Adults and 3 children.

I saw lots of people waiting for the for the ferry. It wasn't a actual ferry. It was a ferry that was red and big that can fit many people in it.

Tons of adults and cars mostly children that arrived back from waiheke Island. After they went out of the red ferry we walked sensibly to the boat. My family and I went  up the steps then I saw a cafe.

It was beautiful, I was filled with joy and I went to the very top of the the boat. I hoped to the side and I almost fell when we waited for an hour to get there. First we hopped on a bus that was very different to our buses in Auckland.
Well we were on the bus and I was looking at the map to see where we were going. We drove past lots of different trees and plants. But the best was the vineyard. It was filled with different plants and vegetables.

After that we went to a marvelous most spectacular beach most ever seen called Onetangi beach. Me and my family ate a little bit of our food we saved to eat at the beach. My family and I were looking for a bench for us to sit on. So we found one. We started with a prayer then we ate. We were very hungry so we ate ate and ate. Me my brother and my older sister finished eating so we head down to the sea. My mum said we could wet our feets in the water.

Running around I made foot prints with my feet on the sand. My footprints made a big circle. Then the last thing was drawing names on the sand I spelled about 3 names, it was fun.

My older sister drawed a very long line with her feet because that was to follow the line and to find the treasure. I followed the very long line and I found the treasure my sister hid it was 3 beautiful white shells.

My family and I had to leave the beach so we can go back to the ferry. So we went on the bus at the bus stop so we can go back. The bus driver said “You’ll stop at another bus stop around a small village”. The small village was called Oneroa village.

When me and my family arrived to Oneroa beach.We went to the oneroa beach to check out how is the beach.It was warm and cosy.

Finally the bus came.My family hoped on the bus and we payed our ticket.The bus took us backwhen we were in the boat again I went to the top.

Me and my family arrived back to half moon bay I was so tired.So we went back home.By Amelia
