Verses 30-44 are not normal narrative sentences. The verses have many disjointed phrases ... but when paraphrased as in most bibles, the verses are made to appear like the report of a real historical event.  A careful and accurate translation of the Greek text reveals a multiplicity of puns and Gnostic metaphors.

6:30 And the apostles lead-together before the Jesus, ...
  and they-reported to-him everything which they-did, ...
  and what they-taught.
6:31 And he-said to-them, ... "Come you yourselves down privately into a-wilderness place, ..."
  "and rest-up a-little."
  Were for the-ones coming and the-ones under-leading many, ...
  and not (did-have) 'a-good-time to-eat.'
6:32 And they-went-away in to-the boat, ...
  into a-wilderness place down privately.
6:33 And many saw them under-leading and knew, ...
  and on-foot from all of-the towns they-ran-together there, ...
  and they-came-before them.
6:34 And having-gotten-out (of the boat) he-saw a-great crowd, and he-had-compassion on them, ...
  because they-were like sheep not having a-shepherd, ... ...
  and he-began to-teach them many-things.
6:35 And already a-late hour came, ...
  coming-before to-him the disciples of-him are-saying that, ...
  "a-wilderness is the place, and already (it is) an-hour much (late), ..."
6:36 "Send-away them, so-that having-departed into the surrounding farm-fields and villages, ..."
  "they-may-buy for-themselves what they-may-eat."
