It was 6 o'clock in the morning and I haven’t slept all night because of this day. I quickly got my togs on and ran to the beach, the waves crashed into the shore like a tornado.

I didn’t want to go in the water so I just looked at the view. I stayed there from 6 o’clock until about 12 because the view was so beautiful I couldn't take my eyes off it. As I was walking to the water I could feel the seaweed  it was as slimy as spaghetti.

I dived into the water like a dolphin and the water was as cold as ice. The deeper I went the darker it was. As I  went deeper  I could see more sea animals. I saw swordfish with their noses as sharp as a knife.I saw electric eels that glowed like glowworms in a cave.

As I was swimming in the cold blue ocean I came upon three big whales, they were as big as a classroom. I felt like I was in a big fishing tank. After looking at the whales I swam up to the top of the water, then I decided to go home so I swam back to shore.

The sand was so hot as hot as an oven as it burnt my feet. I ran across the sand and got an ice cream. Then all of a sudden I woke up in my bed,looked around and I realised that the whole thing was a dream.

I have a SLALOM K1 kayak with red white and black stripes to represent the maori flag. I have chosen a black and white fist too.  

Step 3
Describe who would buy your design

You should buy it because it is so stable so when you think you would fall out no it will tilt back. Only 50 dollars but the first 500 people get it half price. Kids from 7 to 9 or over can only ride the master piece. Only at the warehouse so call now 0800001001.

WALT be cybersmart using a game called Interland. In this game there are 4 different cyber worlds each focusing on a different part of cyber smart. The green mountain which is the one we started with is about being kind and caring. I got to the top of this mountain and scored **** see my screenshot below.
