The sun was shining on my face and beads of sweat came down my face. “It is sooo hot.” I said to my mum. I looked around and I saw my family having an enjoyable time. My uncle was making the food as well as my cousin and his son, some of the little kids were playing on the playground and the others were swimming. The older kids were playing touch. “ When is the food ready?” asked my cousin. “Soon” replied my uncle. Getting hotter and hotter I decided to go for a swim.
“This goes here.” I instructed my brother.
“No! Can we put this there?” complained my brother. Building a sandcastle was harder than I thought it would be. Everything was going fine until my brother and I saw someone kayaking. He was paddling along great. Each stroke cut into the glassy water sending showers of spray flying. We started watching wishing it was us.
Suddenly the man got his paddle stuck into the water. He was rocking from side to side. He couldn’t control his kayke. Before we knew it he fell out of his kayak. We thought he was able to pull himself back into the shore, but we were wrong. My brother and I saw him waving his arms and yelling out HELP, but know one came. “What should we do Jordan?” I asked. “Lets go and get help.” my brother proclaimed.
We sprinted like cheetahs to my mum and told her the bad news. She called my uncle to get the speed boat and help this man. “He is over there” we told our uncle. All of a sudden he went into rescue mode. He zoomed over so fast that waves getting bigger and bigger were left in his wake. We couldn’t see if the man was okay because the boat was blocking him.
Suddenly the boat came back. Everyone was clueless. Was the man okay, did my uncle save him? There he is I said in my head. The man was okay as well as his kayak. “Lucky.” I sighed with relief.
After all that mess we continued with our picnic. “Would you like to stay and have something to eat?” My uncle asked. “Yes please.” he replied. When the picnic was finished my brother and I felt like heroes.
