"WOW"Look at those big waves!
It was a sunny day and some of my family and I went to Devonport. To get to Devonport you have to take a ferry in the city.
When we got to the city we went straight to where the ferries were. We showed our tickets to the guard then we went through the gate. We went through for free because we had these tickets when you pay for it on the train, and you go everywhere for free. Like ferries, buses and trains. We waited for about 10 minutes then the ferry came. Loads of people came off. When it was clear we all went on board.

As soon as I got on I went straight up stairs. The wind was blowing gently. When I looked down I saw some humongous waves. They were crashing into the boat on the outside. There were a lot of bubbles in the waves too. Luckily there was a piece of wood blocking the waves because if there wasn't, the water would be splashing up on us. It took us about 5 to 10 minutes to get to Devonport.

When we finally got there we all got off. Other people went on. We walked through the mall. I saw an ice cream store. I really wanted one but I thought no, I shouldn't have one. When we were outside we saw some horses. They were used to go on rides. You had to pay 5 dollars for one person. We walked across the road to the shops. I brought me some lollies.
My cousin said "who wants hot chips?".We all said "me!".So she said "put one dollar in then". So we did. The hot chips were delicious. We had a little play on the park, then we went back to the city. We caught the train back to G.I.

When I got home I was very exhausted. I went straight to sleep. The End
