“What a great day for a boat ride,” I thought to myself. It is a cozy warm, shorts and short sleeve shirt day at the time that people are arriving onto the big bulky catamaran. The sky is light blue with some dainty see-through clouds and a slight warm western breeze. I am located on one of the tropical islands of Hawaii, Kauai. The glossy white surface of the boat is blinding because of the reflection from the early evening sun. Teeth showing grins from children, parents, and grandparents appear, looking as if it were Christmas morning. There are three workers onboard the forty-foot boat, which include two guys and a girl appearing to be in their thirties. There is a scraggly, grey bearded old man behind the silver steering wheel on the second…show more content…
The smooth wave pool tides follow behind the boat as it leaves the harbor and into the Pacific Ocean. The vessel has a second deck with five rows of white glossy benches with no shelter from the sunlight where you can also find the captain in the bridge of the ship. Once the boat hits the wide open ocean, there are five-foot waves with a slight wind. A big black thunderous cloud is on the far, far horizon.

Scared to my core, I am actually thinking that the boat is going to sink and I am going to DIE TODAY. The captain is the only one on the second level of the ship, while most of the passengers are down on the bottom floor hurling everywhere. I finally could not take the sights and sounds of people puking so I closed my eyes and plugged my ears with two pointer fingers for most of the way back. The same pattern of up and down, up and down, up and down went on for what seemed to be a full day, but what was only an hour and a half. The rain, waves, water, kids crying, boat knocking us like a pinball machine, puking yellow slime, finally stopped after an hour and a half as the knocked up ship had finally made its way to the safe
