    In the image it looks like there has been a tsunami and most of the trees are still standing up right which is surprising seeing what happened to the rest of the place. I think a the two people must feel really sad because of what happened to there home. We’ll I mean there life it is all destroyed right in front of them. If that was you what would you feel like?

    Explain why the men might be kayaking down the road.
    I think they are kayaking because I don’t think they can drive because of the amount of water that is in the way that is why I think they are kayaking down the road. There is not that many people so I think they must of left but the people how are still there must have stayed through the hole think.

    As I am kayaking down the cold water road I feel a cold chill up my back as I turn around it was just my friend. I see lots of glittering water around me and most of the trees are standing up just as I look up I see this tree coming closer to me and my friend it is falling I said but before I now it SPLASH my life flashed before my eyes.

  2. Describe what is happening in the image.
    It Looks Like there has been a lot of rain and it has flooded the road, the trees are flooded and the water is too deep for cars to drive in so a man is kayaking to get to his destination so he won’t get wet.

    Explain why the men might be kayaking down the road.
    Because the water is too deep for cars and he needs to get to where she needs to go so he doesn’t have to walk and/or get wet.

    I was kayaking down the old Melbourne road, I only had to do this because of months worth of rain, the waters freezing more than usual, the trees don’t need anymore water, they’ve got enough, it’s getting dark, my kayak doesn’t seem to be going anywhere, I feel like I’m going around in circles.

  3. Describe what is happening in the image.
    In the image two people are going some were and they are on a kayak rowing down a road with some supplies, the whole road is covered with water and I think other people are in the same thing as well.

    I think that they are going down the road because their house could of been flooded and might be looking for other people to help them to try and get rid of all of the water and maybe help them out to get rid of the water in there house.

    Describe what is happening in the image?
    What I see in the image is a forest type place with a road running straight through the middle of it. Just like a square being cut into halves. A crazy man is paddling slowly down the flowing flood waters, (which is incredibly dangerous because there could be decay, dangerous radiation and things) I think trying to save someone or to return to his home. This could be incredibly dangerous because the man could get hurt in many different ways. He could drown, horrible animals like crocodiles and snakes could attack him and it could be fatal, he sleeps and he gets drifted away somewhere far far away from his home or some other weird reason. I would definitely would not like to be this man because I DO NOT want these type of things to happen to me. Although, I do like canoeing a lot and I also think this activity could be incredibly fun. I am really good at canoeing. It could possibly be one of my favourite water sports other than swimming. The only things I don’t like is if the water is cold like the temperatures in Antarctica and that I do not like to be capsized. The guy might be training for a sports program or he might be practising for the Olympics canoeing. IT COULD BE THE BEST DAY TO DO IT. he is so lucky that god had done this for him. He made his own swimming pool. he is totally CRAZY!!!

    Explain why the men might be kayaking down the road?
    I think the man might be kayaking down the flood water for several reasons. He could be. Travelling to another place because his hometown is ruined, he might be travelling to his family because he has been drifted away, he could have been kayaking down the flood to examine if there is anything wrong with his land, he could be an animal worker and he is looking for dead animals that have drowned or some animals that may have fallen out of trees or been swept away, he might have wanted to see the amazing views of the flood water from the kayak, he could be some random person maybe from a rescue crew, saving someone’s life because they are very close to dying/drowning and many more reasons that I can’t fit on this page. I am very surprise from this second guy. I wouldn’t think that anyone would do this for any of these reasons. He could also be doing this for exercise, which is a tiny bit crazy but, OHH WELL!

    It was HORRIFYING! I accidentally went to sleep behind the wheel and I ended up under water in a flood. I had my kayak on top of my car for safe keepings. I jumped in that and somehow also went to sleep in THAT! I drifted away, looking at all the decay in the dirty water. Disgusting! Suddenly I heard a call for help, “HELP!!!” Cried the voice. This was not the starts of my problems.

    THANKS FOR READING IF YOU DID. I PUT ALL MY EFFORT INTO THIS GINORMOUS PIECE OF WRITING!

  6. In the image there is two people rowing down a road in there kayak.The road has flooded so people can’t there cars.

    The men might be kayaking because maybe that will be the only time they will be able to do it. They might of wanting to find out where the flooded stops.

  7. Describe what is happening in the image.
    It seemed the in the picture two men were kayaking up a flooded road and that on the road there is a flood and in the bushes as well.

    Explain why the men might be kayaking down the road.
    It seems like the men when down the road because there might of been people that need help or that they are stuck and they might be curious/scared a bit because they don’t know where or how the flood came and where it came from.

    Joy and I were kayaking down a road to see if anyone was stuck and needed help
    And try find out what caused the flood and how it came.

  8. There is this crazy guy what is in a kayak going down a road where it is flooded this guy is crazy because what if a tree fell and made him stuck or heart and there wouldn’t be anyone who would know that his there until they start looking what they don’t do until 24 hours but he might even be dead the time they find him that’s why I think his crazy for doing that. It wouldn’t be that bad if there is someone with him or someone who knows where he is if they knew he prolly wouldn’t of done it that’s another reason why u think he is a crazy guy what he is wasting his life on crazy things like this,one day he won’t be lucky to live. The guy is in the middle of no where so they might get even more lost from his car because the looks of this that road is one of the mane roads and they go on and on to get to the next town but it might take awhile to get to the next town and what if he gets stuck because of a tree so he needs to get of track or go back he will get lost but if he tries to go around it will be more dangers. Sometimes when I go somewhere there is heaps of trees where if you crash or something there is a big fall so if he tries and go around he might fall into the deep hall. Is he really going to maybe get stuck out in the middle of know where that just show how people don’t even think before they do stuff anymore they just do it before they think they might even kill there sulf then they would want to think before they do it. Unless he has someone with him you would think he would have someone with him he might even be smart and he has someone with him in the helicopter they could save his live instead of him dieting out there.

    The guy might be training for something that is coming up or he might just love kayak and he never has time to go to the beach so when he has the chance he will so it,I think when people are that crazy it must mean they don’t get enough time to do what they love,he might be doing something good for a change his prolly been bored to deaf just sitting on the catch waiting for the flood to go away what if he just wanted a little fun for once instead of sitting there. It probably isn’t dangers if he has someone with him he might be doing something good for someone like a deal for money it’s not that dangers if you have someone with you it’s steal a little bit dangers and I wouldn’t support it but it’s better then them going by there sulf. What if he falls there someone with him but if they rant with anyone they will most and likely die but if they are with someone he probably won’t die.DO YOU WANT TO DIE OF A CRAZY THING!! I wouldn’t some people don’t now how lucky they are and they are going to just waste all there good things in live and just die on this little stupid thing the. They will be remember by this dome thing, Do you really want to die by a stupid thing like this? I know I wouldn’t want to die like that.

    THIS IS SO FUN! I said when I was going really fast going down the road feeling really scared I never wanted to do it let me take you back when it all started, I was thinking one day thinking that people were going to laugh at me when I was going to go all the way to the beach just to train when it started raining I wasn’t happy until it flooded so I got on my kayak and stated going down the mane road it was really scared when it got over and it was about to fall over I tried to make it not until I see a trees in the road it was scared until I jumped and got of it and got over my kayak and was really happy when I was ok it was funny a after woulds I got on my kayak again and did it again I was crazy until I got back and I was lost

    1. Describe what is happening in the image.
      A man is kayaking down the road and I also see that there was been a flood. I don’t know why he would do that.

      Explain why the men might be kayaking down the road.
      I think the men might be kayaking down the road because they don’t know where an river or a lake. I would never do that because it is dumb way to die I would rather die in a different way the that crazy way. I think they mig be going to save somebody.

  9. Describe what is happening in the image.

    I think that the 2 men that are on the kayak are probably looking for someone to rescue from the flooded road. I think they are working and they are trying to get to their work and they have to use a kayak. I can see a men and its child and they might have to go through the long way because it is flooded both way’s they need to go to the shops and it is flooded.

  10. Describe what is happening in the image.
    I can see two men in a kayak going down the road that is flooded. It’s a forest type of place. And the men are just going down the middle of it like its just nothing he must be amazing to just do that. I would be felling scared to go down this road because you could flip the kayak and be stuck just somewhere random and the water would be freezing cold. Then would have to swim to land or you could just stay there and freez to death or die by hunger or thirst.

  11. Describe what is happening in the image.
    There is a taliented man what likes to do kayak. The road is flood and this man came and do some kayaking around. People can be homeless and you have no where to live and be so hungey they will be sick and maybe die. In the floods you should watch out just incasesomethink is in the water.

  12. Describe what is happening in the image.
    It has flood and they is a men kayaking and the men might be going home and they is tree on the ground.

  13. In the image there is a man quickly kayaking down the river. He might be trying to get into town to do his shopping because he might not have a 4×4 with a snorkel to drive through the flood waters. Or he could be rehearsing for a compitition. How does he feel kayaking down a flooded river I don’t know but I am guessing it would feel really weird!!
