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 Jesus ...
  and they reported to him everything they did ...
  and what they taught.
6:31 And he said to them ... Come down privately by yourselves into a wilderness place ...
  and rest a little.
  For the ones coming and under leading were many ...
  and they did not have a "good time" to eat.
6:32 And they departed in the boat ...
  down into a wilderness place privately.
6:33 And many perceived them under leading and knew ...
  and "on foot" from all of the cities they ran together there ...
  and they arrived ahead of them.
6:34 And coming out, he perceived a vast crowd ...
  and he had compassion on them ...
  for they were like "sheep" not having a "shepherd" ...
  and he began to teach them many things.
6:35 And now becoming a "late hour" ...
  his disciples drew near before him ...
  they said that the place is a wilderness.
  And now (the) hour (is) "very late."
6:36 Send them away, so that coming away into the encircling fields and villages ...
  they may buy for themselves what they may eat.
