“Look for fun family places to go,” he told me I pulled my phone out and found a place called Blue Hole, it was a blue lake where we could go scuba diving and swim. Everyone was stoked to go swimming because it was so hot and us kids were super bored. My dad drove an hour or so to get to this lake, when we got there everyone was super nice and greeting to us. Hours later after left. We were finally ready to drive home.
I remember taking my lessons in February when it was only 40 degrees outside! As soon as I got done with one of my sets, I would come inside the little shack that sat by the dock and would blast the propane heater so I could get some feelings back into my fingers! I really learned many skills to help me be more successful and progress in wakeboarding. The camps put on by Active Water Sports offered during the summer were a blast! Meals were provided for us as well as small little houses where we got to stay and then it was off to riding for the rest of the afternoon.
Since I am a high school student, most people would say that I have my entire life and many experiences ahead of me. But despite being so young, I already have had a heart-stopping experience, which I am sure will haunt and guide me until my last days. It all started with a summer boating trip I took with my family to Lucky Peak Lake Reservoir. Though we did not hit an iceberg like the ship Titanic, it was truly a chilling experience. The day actually started out very pleasant, my family drove to Lucky Peak to spend the day out on the water with my cousins and grandparents.
When we rushed to get on the cruise ship I saw that there were so many rooms and shops. My favorite room was the Game room, when I entered the game room there were so many games and seemed like there were hundreds and hundreds of them. I started to get bored so I left. When I went to back to our room my dad was thinking about going scuba diving. The following morning my dad planned to go scuba diving when all the tourist went to go sight seeing on the island.
My decision was terrible because I woke up with wet back and I immediately cleaned it up because my dad would have gotten mad at me. We go home around midnight and we all raced to the bathroom so we can take a shower. That day was the first time I was glad to
When Ralph finally got the hang of the conch he blew it so loud that all the birds flew into the air. Next thing we know tons and tons of children start to come out of the woods. Once we noticed that there were no more children coming, there needed to be order. Since I taught Ralph how to use the conch everyone thought he should be leader which he gladly accepted. After that we met a kid named Jack and his choir boy's.
We loved to watch the huge fish jump far above the water, and dive back in head first. We never stayed in a tent because of all the moisture that the river would give off. In the mornings, when we did stay in the tent, my family and I would wake up feeling drenched with water. We had a new camp trailer that was big enough to fit five people. The trailer was white with a maroon stripe going down the side.
We learnt a game called Gaga, we were in this circle box, we had a ball and we had to try to avoid it form touching us, when I did touch us we sat on the edge waiting for the next game! We were in groups and my group started with canoeing, the guy who was there said that there were bull sharks in the water, and that scared me so much because I’m so gullible. We were with partners and we lined up our canoes in the water, and I swapped with someone and ended up being with akolde who is very bad at steering because I was doing all the work. After that we went back to camp and we played the environmental game! We were put in groups, I was in the lowest group which meant anyone could catch me, the hunters could, the diseases and some other group.
The last thing Marina did before going to bed was hug and kiss her parents goodnight. Pg.24- After she was already she jumped into bed and went fast asleep. That night all Marina could dream about was being on the water and her day fishing with her Dad . When she would wake Marina would get to go fishing with her Daddy all over again.
We were both super excited to experience something we had never done before. The morning of our scuba diving trip we had to go meet our scuba diving instructor for him to go over rules. Then we had a break to go eat lunch and rest a little before we went out into the ocean. After our break, we came back to the hotel and prepared to go out on the boat to where we were actually scuba diving.
