My Waitangi Day trip.

“Get changed we’re going for a ride!” my Dad exclaimed. I was playing B-BalI then I got changed and jumped into the car. While we were driving out the driveway onto the main road I fell asleep.”Yaaawwwnnn, where are we?” I asked my Mum. There was no response, so I looked outside the window and saw a sign saying ‘Pukekohe 1 km and Drury 3 km’ . I thought to myself ,this is a long way away from where I stay Mt Wellington.

Although we stopped at various places like Rebel sport ( to get my brother some cricket gear ) and Burger king (to have lunch), it was a long journey. About 3 - 4 hours, to get to our destination Kariotahi beach. To my surprise the sand was black, I asked my Dad why and he said “because there is lots of iron in the sand”. When I got over the black sand, me and my brother went to the shore. We saw big waves about 2 - 3 meters high and the tide was coming in fast. So we had a challenge where we could see who could run across the waves without getting wet.He won but I put his hat in the water. After that we just walked on the beach and threw sand at each other, and watched other people surf.
“Time to go.”dad said, I ran to the car, with sandy feet and I flopped inside. We drove home, thinking everything was going good but then my Dad stopped the car and exclaimed “ This is the wrong way back home.” He  took out his phone and checked the map and saw that we were going down south not going north back to Auckland, that made the drive about  30 minutes later.

But although we had a very very long drive home, I t
hink that it was cool to spend time with my family at a very cool beach. It was a good experience.
