As we got to talking to one another we realized we had the same interests. I enjoyed meeting them and hope to see them again someday. While in conversation, the mother brought up that there had been a fourteen-foot shark swimming near the shore earlier in the morning. The news of the shark was shocking to me because if I had chosen to go to the ocean earlier in the morning instead of the pool, I could have been in serious danger of an attack. Mom and I later went out to dinner in the evening to another one of our favorite restaurants, the Shrimp Basket.
Gavin and I went to the beach to look around, there was a pool too, not just the ocean. We went back to see if we could change into our suits and go to the beach, my mom said not yet because she had to go get some sunscreen. We got a body board for the ocean and that is what I was doing most of the time. While my mom went to the store my brother and I tried to make a sand castle but it failed so we stopped. Once my mom got back we changed and got in the ocean.
My friends and I drove down to the beach a day later than my parents, so when we arrived there my parents were already there. We went to the beaches in Stone Harbor and Avalon, to go surfing. I had never been surfing and neither had one of my friends, however my other friend was a pretty good surfer, he had surfed for most of his life and was willing to teach us in the art of surfing. When we reached the beach it was after five in the evening and the lifeguards had left and we were ready to start surfing.We rushed into the water right when we stepped on the beach, the water was only a little bit colder than the water in my pool that and swam out to the small rough waves. Close to shore the small rough waves made it hard for us to get out to the big blue Crashing waves farther out.
He was scared but knew he had to keep going to make it out.He made it through the tunnel and blood filled his goggles. He swam to the surface gasping for air.

I, on the other hand, I am always relaxed and try to go with the flow. We also make totally different decisions. For example, we all three of us are one this year-round, competitive swim team. Our coach said that he really wanted everyone to be at this teammates practice, we had just recently, and it was the same day as the cadet football playoff game! All of my friends were going so I really wanted to go, but I decided that I would go to swimming instead.

2nd Log Entry During my first log entry, I pointed out my personal goals I hoped to accomplish during this class. As a beginner swimmer, I was mainly interested in conquering my fear of water. As of week four I could say that I am now comfortable being inside a body of water. First week I could not even get my entire body into to the swimming pool. As of right now, I could get into the pool without any anxiety, and I am able to float on a water comfortably.
As part of the unesco (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) I took great care in preserving the Great Barrier reef for many more generations to enjoy, with being the year 2050 none of us knew how much longer the reef could last. This would be the first time in many years that I go see the reef. After suiting up in a wetsuit i was euphoric to get into the water and explore. The boat set out and after a short time I was in the water. I was baffled how warm the water was it must of raised at least a few degrees from the last time I was here.
Waking after such terrifying events, Rainsford thought over all that had happened over the past few days on the island with General Zaroff. “How will I ever find Whitney?” thought Rainsford as he stumbled around the chateau in a daze, “Perhaps I can swim to Haiti, I should be close enough and Johnson lives around there.” Johnson was Rainsford’s old childhood friend who had lived 2 blocks away, he moved to Haiti when he became 30, so that he would always be by the sea. Rainsford decided this was a good plan, but instead of swimming he went down by the shore and forged a raft out of coconut tree wood. Leaving the island left Rainsford with many different feelings, mainly sadness, but for some reason he felt like he would be back one day. The
