Trip to Rangitoto Island
We got there and the view was breath taking. Have you travelled on a ferry? Well today I am travelling to Rangitoto. When we got on the boat I was full of excitement. We were sitting on the 3rd level which is on top of the ferry. When we got there we got to sit in seats while the tractor towed us around on a tour of Rangitoto. The driver stopped near some stairs and said “The summit is all the way up there”. “Three hundred and sixty five steps” he said. But I didn’t hear I was too busy walking up the stairs, it was a long way having to walk all the way. Then we had to go back to our seats. We had another stop near these piles of volcanic rocks. It was all kinds of shapes. Then I could feel something wet touch my face. Oh no! It’s raining, we all had to get back into our seats. But it eventually stopped and we got to go to the beach. I wrote my name in the sand. Finally we had lunch and got on the boat and went home.
