My Summer Highlight

Our feet blistered in the scorching sand as we walked down to the water, no ran down, with our Christmas present- the Explorer 300 inflatable boat! My sister Kate and my cousin Liam were holding the front and back, and my other cousin Zara and I were holding the sides. We got to the water's edge, stripped down to our togs, and chucked the Explorer 300 into the water.
"Shotgun first!" I yelled.
"3 in the boat, Sophie!" My sister said.
"We can fit 4!" Zara called.
So we all jumped into the boat, and attempted to paddle out to sea. Yes, I said attempted. It didn't exactly work, we ended up rowing around in circles! We gave up on that idea, and ended up playing a game where one person had to stand up in the boat, and everyone else rocked it around until they fell out into the murky water!
Drenched, muddy, sandy and exhausted, we retired back home where we relaxed outside under the beautiful sunset at Port Waikato beach.
Now my cousins bags are packed, and they are ready to head off back to Australia, where we won't see them until the next Christmas...
