Diving with Dad!

Two weeks ago I went diving with my dad.We went to Army bay.To get there we had to go over the Harbour bridge.
When we got there we went out where it was deep.Then we dived under and found lots of kina.We filled the bucket until it got to the top.The last kina that we were going to get was huge I touched it and I said "oww" because I pricked my finger with its spikes.Then my Dad got it.We had lots and I said "yum".
I can't wait until we go again,because we are going to have the special gear next time.

Well done Casey, our first post for the year. Kina are very spikey aren't they. I bet you are looking forward to getting the rest of the diving gear and getting some kaimoana that live deeper down under!

Hi Casey
What a very cool day you had and you wrote such an interesting description of it. Sounds like you found a very good spot to dive in. How is your finger now? Kina pricks can be very painful.

Hello Casey,
we've just finished reading your story with half of your class in the ICT centre.

I really enjoyed the part of your story where you talked about touching a kina.

I don't eat them myself but I can remember as a child always having to help pack up all the rubbish with my parents after everyone has a good feed of kinas.

Do you like eating them?

I'm looking forward to your next post, maybe you could tell us about other types of seafood you enjoy eating.

Hi Casey. What a cool day, I wish I had a lot of kinas to eat. You sound like you were having fun.

Did you eat all the kina's?

Were you nervous about diving?

Does your Dad do this all the time?

We are looking forward to your answers.

Hey Casey,
Did you have a great time over there? How was the kina its pretty yuk.Did you go for a swim in the deep water or close to the deep water, man that's got to be freaky .Swimming close to the harbour bridge is really deep you know oh well at least you had a great time having a dive with your dad and eating the kina. I can remember eating a kina with my dad when I went for a swim.Have a great day Casey see you.
