To me the ocean is a big playground.The surroundings are the swings, swimmingare the monkey bars,and making pools are the slides. They are each fun in their own way.Do you leave the playground happy? I do, as well as the ocean. I leave the beach happy is because of the beautiful surroundings, the variety of things to do, and most of all because I love making the pools at high tide.
The first reason that I leave the beach happy is because I love the surroundings.I was at the beach and was in trouble.My parents were mad at me.’’Caterina you have to sit in a chair for 10 minutes’’ So I did.I looked around and just then I noticed how peaceful the ocean is.The waves crashing,the animals and plants,and even searching for the other side of the ocean.I sunk my feet in the soft sand and relaxed.’’Caterina your 10 minutes are done’’But I stayed put.Thinking how peaceful the ocean is.

Sometimes I think it is not fair I can only enjoy the beach in the summer or late spring-’Caterina what are you doing’’said my sister in an annoying voice.She was not looking at my face she was looking at my hands.I looked at my handsI was holding a box,dead crabs pooled in vinegar, and some gold seashells.‘’I am going to make a mini beach’’I replied‘’Without water’’she added as she climbed out the car. I dumped the sand in the box,then added the shells and some dead crabs pooled in vinegar.‘’Why should I only enjoy the ocean in the summer and spring.’’I thought The surroundings include plants and shells,the surroundings include animals,and the surroundings include the water.Somtimes I like the sound of water ribging threw my ears. https://youtu.be/qREKP9oijWI?t=133
The second reason I leave the beach happy is because there is a variety of things to do. FACT–A daily visit to the beach for my family is 5 to 6 hours so there has to be something to do. My family and I finally reached the beach. I skipped across the sand to the ocean and crashed into a sign. My siblings helped me up and asked what the sign wrote.‘’Sorry swimmers but the ocean is closed,there are jellyfish.’’I said. I brushed off, and went to go make sandcastles.My siblings followed. My siblings and I finished making a sand castle city. But then a foot stomped on our city. I looked higher to see that it was a round child. He was about 10 when I was 5. I shivered. He joined his friends and together they walked away laughing.When we tried to make our city again. But they came. The horrible laughing was ringing in my ears. I was starting to lose my patience but I saw a big tear rolling down my brother’s cheak. That was it.I took my siblings to look at the beach and they enjoyed the view. Sometimes you just got to have a lot of tools in you belt for one situation’’I thought. I have the sand, I have the water, but most of all I have the surroundings.To have step by step instructions to make different sandcastles click the link below.https://www.fatherly.com/play/show-your-kids-how-to-be-king-of-the-sandcastle/
When I was younger I did not swim, I did not make castles with sand, and I did not look at life. The whole time I was at the beach I played in the playground.But one day…My father said’’Children you can not play in the playground anymore, figure out something else to to do.’’What am I going to.’’I complained in my head.I was always at the playground that I did not know what else to do. I was always making friends in the playground, but now I can’t see them.I said bye to my friends and left. But one of my friends followed me. We laughed and made castles.’’Maybe I don’t need the playground.’’I thought. Although I come back from the beach happy because of the surroundings and the variety of things to do I mostly come back from the beach happy because I make pools in the high tide.
High tide pool
It was high tide, I could see the wrinkles in the sand. I helped my parents stick the umbrella in the sand. Then my father said we could play.‘’After I play with the sand do you want to take a walk with me?’’My sister said.‘’Sure’’I replied So my sister went to go make castles.I saw my sisters flip-flops in the sand knowing she does not walk barefoot.I took her shoes and dug a hole.Instantly there was water in the hole.’’I did not pour water in that hole, I just dug it.’’I said.I dug another small hole in the sand there was water once again.I rubbed my eyes in disbelief.I put my sister’s shoes back in its place and took my shovel and dug the biggest hole I ever made.I dipped my foot in the water and noticed it was warm.I dipped my whole body in the water and kicked back and relaxed.’’This is the life’’I said.My siblings and I made a pretty pool.We decided that we should make a ramp so that all the ocean water would come in whenever the wave comes.This pool was so big we each had our own sections.But then two, ten year old kids came and asked if they could play.I hesitated thinking they were strangers. We were the ones who made the pool and now they wanted to come.Then my sister said ‘’sure’’. They came in and our space was limited.But then they started telling jokes and playing with us they wanted a friend.‘’Maybe this is not so bad’’ I thought.Then I started laughing at the joke my new friend had told me.
