My Holiday Writing : Longo's Game

My Goals are to:
  • add detail by using specific vocabulary and to give examples.
  • create mood in my writing by using interesting vocabulary, similes and metaphors.
  • use different sentence structures for effect.
22.07.15 Karaka
When - 11.06.15 Saturday 11 July
Where -  Karaka
Why - To watch my cousin in law
Who - My Family, My Cousin In law, The Crowd
What - A rugby game
How -  I felt excited, happy, thrilled, delighted

Mud splashing everywhere, Sweat running down, Balls thrown everywhere. Rugby is the one sport I dislike with a passion. Lucky for me Saturday was the day of watching it. Saturday 11 of July, was the saddest day of my life.

It was the day of Rugby, which did not give my joy or happiness. What did make me excited, was that the game was held in Karaka. Karaka is a small suburb or town near Pakuranga.   Not knowing was Karaka would look like scared me for some reason.

But that changed once we arrived. Karaka reminded me of being in the Countryside. The fresh air gave me great pleasure and delight. Arriving to the field felt like arriving to a pig stye, literally.  The field was filled with mud, mushy and  soft mud.  The game was not as bad as I thought it would be. It was actually quite entertaining & fascinating.    

The game concluded and a lot of photos were taken. I had a sad feeling that we were to leave Karaka. But I know that we may return some day.
