As fast as a bullet

We hopped in the car and headed down to the jetty with  the bullet on  the trailer. When we got down to the jetty I  jumped out of the car and ran to the jetty. BD backed the boat into the water.
I had to hold onto the boat so it did not float away. BD ran down to me he hopped into the boat and started the boat's engine. It roared like a lion. We zoomed across the lake going sixty miles an hour. I could feel the fresh breeze blowing on my face  and  I could see the waves rolling by. After a little while we headed back to shore. When we got back to the jetty I helped to get the boat onto the trailer. And then we headed home. Can't wait till next time.

Helicopter buzz flying high

Earlier this year I had a helicopter ride in Taupo. When it was time for the helicopter to take off  I climbed in the helicopter. The helicopter blades started then we took off. As we were getting up higher my heart started beating faster. But after a while I got used to it. I thought to myself I can see everything. As we turned around to go back home we went over the Huka Falls and some of the paddocks.  Then we got closer and closer to the helicopter pad and landed. When I hopped out I thought to myself what a cool experience!!!

My first fish in Lake Taupo

We put the boat in the water  and BD started the boat's engine. We made our way to the fishing spot at Acacia Bay .We put the rod's in the water and the boat started it's engine again because we were going trolling and the boat needs to move to go trolling. We waited until we got a bite. We had a few snacks like chips and after a while we decided to wind the lines in. When we were winding
the rod's in we got a bite on one of our roads it was my rod I wined it in. but unfortunately it was a baby fish. But as BD put the fish back in the water I felt happy for catching my first fish
so we could not keep it but at least it was my first fish from Lake Taupo. We gradually got faster   when we were heading back to shore and we got the boat up on the plain we zoomed back to the boat ramp and put the boat on the trailer and went back home. When we got in the door I thought  to my self what an exiting day!!!
