Hi all well we survived our tubeing experience well just lol. Its been scorching hot weather here today 31 not trying to make anyone jealours. So we decided to take the boat which our lovely bosses lent us down the river, me, kurt and Nick. The scenery was lovely so i hope you all like the photos on facebook (mu,m you need to message me vandas last name so i can find her on facebook). We had such a good time I did get attached by a tree though as Nick was busy having a cigarette and forgot to steer the boat which was an experience.
We were told to get out by Reeds Farm otherwise we would end up going down he Huka Falls which is on photos on our facebook. As we got there the rapids got bigger and Kurt launched off the boat to grap a rock at that point me and nick thought he was a gonna as he layed head first in the river. But it was all ok as he was fine, me and nick struggled to get off and got a few scratches but we are all fine. Thats was not the end though as we pulled our boat onto the rig, another guy got into trouble and began to get sucked intot he whirlpool just as his friend was getting to him he was going under, nick then swam over with one of a life jackets (a life safer thank you Albie) and they managed to get him back. SO that was our excitement for the day and we had a mega great time. I lover Taupo.
It was great to speak to everyone we spoke to on skype especially kurts sister and family as we have not spoke to them since we were away. Your be all glad to here that we have rain, its still hot but there is rain for the next few days the result of two meetings between two cyclones.
Love you all xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
