Marine Reserve

On the 27th of November 2012. My classroom Room 2 and room 3 went to Te Tapuwae O rongokako. The marine reserve at pouawa beach. We went snorkelling my group was Lillian,LaToyah and Zara.

We swam in a certain area with rocks and seaweed. My group went into the really deep part. The water was freezing. We saw fish, crabs, and EVEN a CRAYFISH! It was BIG!

The best part ever was when we went diving down to the bottom of the sea. And also after the swim when we went for a nice walk to a beautiful picnic area to eat. If I did this again I would go out deeper.

Guy Fawkes

Boom! Bam! Carck! Fireworks bursting into a myriade of colours. Loud noises blaring in my ears. Staring around the neighbourhood all I could see was children yelling and hollering, fireworks being lit up,and adults sitting back watching their children laugh and giggle like there was no tommorrow. My eyes gaze excitedly up at the fireworks that are blasting in every direction,the sky blends in with the fireworks making it more creative.Sparklers are shining as bright as the moon and I am as happy as can be. I love fireworks dont you?

Tourist Attractions in Gisborne

1. Minigolf

 Mini golf is a fun way of playing golf. Kids and adults enjoy playing this fun,challenging game.You have a scoreboard and 1 to 4 people can play with you. You have 18 stages. It starts off easy then it gets challenging  And mini golf is in town so its easy to get to.

2. Stingray Feeding
 Stingray Feeding is when you go out to Tatapouri which is a beach. Then you go out to the sea with someone and you see different kinds of stingrays. You can pat them and also feed them.They teach you a little bit about stingrays.But that is one of my favorite things to do.

3 .Kaiti Hill
Kaiti Hill is where you can go for a good workout, play on the playground,Walk up the tracks,look at all the history or just go for a drive up the hill. Kaiti hill is a nice place to look out at the beach. I run up the hill with my mum my sister and my nephew comes with us in the pram.
