In the end they decided to jump into the river to get their belongings. But soon after they realized that it was a very bad decision. This is very similar to our group’s decision because some people decided that is was an excellent idea to go after the items, while I did not. Our reasons were very similar too. The reason why I chose not to jump into the river was because that I thought that the water was going to be too cold and that the water would be too rough.
I did not see any dolphins in the morning but my grandparents told me that we were going to go see some dolphins on a dolphin cruise. Because Gulf Shores is on the Gulf of Mexico dolphins like to ride the waves when boats go out. We drove to the dolphin cruise place and we got on the boat. There were lots of old people on the boat. My sisters and I were the only kids on the boat.
For a while, I could not find them, so I started crying and scared that I would not see them ever again. A nice lady helped me as she saw me crying, and got help from employees to find my parents. Once I found them, I was happy but the day was ruined because of that and we went home. The transformation in my story was when it went from all fun and games to being isolated from my parents and scary. Transformation does create fear into the reader.
We were getting bored and wanted to go outside. We decided to go outside and fishing in the small lake, I really wanted to and because it was my birthday they did it with me. As I noticed it was around 2 am I reconsidered my idea. I chose my big-heavy duty pole for cat fishing. I have always feared getting a hook stuck in my finger, but I haven’t really worried about it too much.
On the occasion I would go canoeing all across the lake; sometimes just for leisure and other times my brother and I would go fishing. Catching turtles had become somewhat of a hobby of mine. We would go into the swampy part of the lake and patiently wait for a turtle to emerge from beneath the water so that one of us could scoop it out of the water with a net. Independence Day on the lake was an exciting event; it started off with a parade of boats and jet skis, followed by my friends and family visiting for a hefty cook out, and ended with an overwhelming amount of fireworks being shot all across the
The race would start at 8:30 and we needed to be ready to help any swimmers who needed us. The event kicked off with swimmers leaving the beach at Sandy Point State Park and all the preparation culminates in the next 2-3hours of idling and adjusting position, like finding the right fishing spot, to stay where we were most needed. There are, understandably, no boats with any moving gear allowed anywhere near the swimmers, so if a swimmer needs help a kayaker tows them out to a boat. Most folks don’t need medical help, they just recognize, like a marathon runner, they won’t be finishing this year. We stay ready and vigilant, trying to stay stationary throughout the race.
My sister and I were both shocked. After a while, Donald left to get something to eat. But, when he did, he left the door ajar. I whispered to Annabelle, “Slip out of your rope like I did and we’ll make a run for it.” So, Annabelle and I slipped out of our ropes and ran out the door as fast as we could. Donald was long gone so he didn’t see us escape.
I finally got out of the water after talking to Chloe for a while about how nice and perfect this night was she says. “How can this day get any better” Chloe asked? “I don’t think it can.” I say After sitting on the boat looking out into the waveless lake with a fiery sunset behind it, we decided to end the day with one last cannonball. Holding hands, we jump into the fiery sunset, what a way to end our great day. After that we decided we wanted to have a jumping contest, we invited our brothers of course, Ben saying “of course” Nathan saying “sure why not”.
It was a week before my dad told my brother and I than we were going to go fishing with one of his friends. I was like ok it’s just going to be another day of fishing were we only catch about to fish every day. So we went on our day and finally told us something that I thought we would never hear “ Boys we’re going to Nebraska.” “ Why are we going there.” I said “ Because one of my friends invited me to go fishing with him, and he wanted me to bring you guys along.” So a week later we went back to our dad’s house. He had all of his things packed up, sleeping bag, food, cloths, and chargers. I forsure know that I was excited to go.
There are examples of culture in the Joy Luck Club as well as the Yellow Raft in Blue Water. Culture is shown in the Yellow Raft in Blue Water when Christine and Rayona travel to Aunt Ida’s who 's at the reservations so they can “dwell” there for a while. Rayone leaves a few days after her mom leaves with Dayton. Culture is clearly shown when Rayona and Christine are reunited at Dayton 's house after the bedlam rodeo. “ I called Charlene, everybody, even Elgin, but nobody knew a damn thing about you”( Dorris, 130).
