How to survive in a life raft

Surviving in a life craft

If you are in a life raft here are somethings you should remember:

  1. Never drink sea water and urine it will only make you even thirsty.
  2. Practice swimming to the craft.
  3. Always have sea sick pills.
  4. Where a life jacket.
  5. Hug on or snuggle up to someone to keep warm.
  6. Keep your floor dry in the craft to avoid getting saws.
  7. Have lots of gear so you wouldn’t die of exposure.
  8. Practice inflating the life craft blind folded.
  9. Don’t say you are going to die or you will.

Parakai Pools

On a hot sunny day I was so relieved that my family and I were going to parakai springs. We set off on our two hour journey.

As soon as we reached our destination i was pleased to see plenty of people having fun. I had just put down our bags when suddenly I heard my name. I turned around and there was Judah, a boy from our school, so I said, "Hi" and carried on with what I was doing.

“Finally I can go for a swim," I said. As soon as I hit the water I felt refreshed like I had been drinking lots of cola. After a long time in the pool I decided to go to the hydro slide. "3 2 1 GO!". I slid off like a car spinning out of control. My speed that I was going at was terrific. “Here’s the end I said”. I had been spat out from the hydra slide crashing into the pool.

So, our trip to Parakai Pools involved lots of fun and plenty of laughter.
