A moment in Time


I stepped out of the bus and gentle wind swished my hair. It was as soothing as having a massage done to my back.There was "eye candy" everywhere. Targets, arrows, bows, a kitchen with shiny pots and pans, the rough water, and best of all the snaking water-slide.
The sound of the waves thumping the sand melted into my eardrums.
I stared at the bows, curious. What could the weapons do?
My ears hurt from the clatter of sticks and stones fighting one another.
The ocean touched my toes, which gave me the shivers.
I questioned myself. What will the hot dog slide be like?

A Moment in Time
“Woo hoo!” That was the sound of kids as they slid down the waterslide. “Again! Again!” kids shout. The red waterslide shone in my eyes. I noticed the water running down me. I was so excited to go again. Will I get dish wash liquid in my eyes? I daydream of going down the world’s longest water-slide again!

The Trapeze
“You can do it!” my friend yelled to me.
“5, 4, 3, 2, 1 jump!” the instructor shouted. A long wooden bar was hanging in front of me. My heart was beating faster. My hands were sweating as I was about to jump. Was I going to be able to grab the stick? Was I going to hurt myself if I jumped?

Camp Adair
Birds chirping and people chattering caught my ears' attention. The water trickling down the stream was music to my ears. The wire up in the air made my stomach turn into knots. The smell of mud made my hands sweat. My eyes' caught a glimpse of the colourful kayaks in the distance. I wondered, would I be able to cross to the end of the high beam.
"When is it my turn?" I thought.

I heard my friends screaming in the forest!
I heard splashing in the pond.
I saw muddy icky faces!
I felt eels swirling around my legs
I felt muddy sand under the water with my feet
I wondered if the confidence course's muddy water was too deep for me.
I wondered if the trapeze was too high for me.

EOTC day!I felt the strong-willed wind blowing back my golden brown hair. Before the last activity we had some golden crispy pancakes.
Afterwards we had our last amazing event. It was the water-slide! I kept on complaining that I didn’t want a whole lot of bubbles on my face! I heard the water swishing around. Screaming and yelling people were saying, “It’s so cold!” I saw everybody smiling and having a good time! I felt the strong wind blowing harder and harder. I felt the cold hose-water on my back. I wondered if I would get a 5th turn. I wondered if I would win the climbing race!

The deadly woods
I heard deadly screaming coming from the deadly woods.
I heard wicked laughs and freaky noises.
I saw nothing but darkness and darker shadows moving towards us.
I felt heavy breathing on my cheek and the swift wind on my legs.
I wondered if ‘Precious’ would creep up on me.
I wondered if I would make it out alive from the deadly, darkest woods!!

 I felt the wind whipping my hair as I got ready to release the arrow!
I heard the air screeching as I
I saw the arrow hit the blue bit of the target. “Woo hoo!” I screamed as I realised I had hit the target.

  1. Hi Olivia,
    We liked the way you used powerful verbs like"whipping". We remember when we did archery too. We both got close to the middle. Did you ever hit a bullseye?

  2. "WOW!" Jordan G you must be so brave going out there. How many times did you scream? I would be screaming the whole time too. To not get scared I would just close my eyes and hold on to someone else.
