Adventures in the great outdoors

Some memories get my adrenaline flowing, making me feel shaky and nervous, making my lips and mouth feel dry like the desert. Do you have memories that make you feel the same?

This first memory made my heart thump really fast.So it all started off as long drive to Porters Ski Field. We’re here, we made it past the twisty turns in the road that were covered in snow so it was really slippery.

I got into my ski gear.  I walked over to the chair lift and got my skis on and had a warm up run down from the chair. We went on all 3 t-bars and did an easy run for the start and then did a black diamond run which means it is really hard. It was called Big Mama. It took us a long time because my big brother  got stuck in the snow. He’d done the splits so it took us about 1 hour to complete the run.

That childhood memory was little bit scary but this one was exciting.

We went fishing for blue cod off a point when l was five years old. So I put my line down to the bottom of the sea and waited. (Five minutes later).

Daddy! Daddy! I got a big fish on! Daddy came over and helped me pull up the big fish. We measured it and it was 40 centimetres long.

That memory was exciting but this one was funny and scary.

When I was 5 years old and on holiday in the sounds, my brother and I were playing on our ski biscuit in a bay. My little brother saw a large fish swimming beneath us and yelled out shark! Tram and I started screaming ahhhhhhhh!! But it wasn't a shark it was a massive kingfish.  It took us a long time to go back in the water that day.

Now you know why I had adrenaline flowing, why I was nervous and why my lips were dry like a desert. These memories will stay with me forever.
