As I look out the window of my house to see a cold and uninviting gray sky, with a wall of evergreen pines leading down to the shore of Oswego Lake, a sense of longing overcomes me. The lake tantalizes me, reaching out with her arms, begging me to go for a swim. I think back to the summer days, with the sun sizzling above me as I leap off the bow of my boat, arms pointed to the cloudless sky. I arch over, curved like a bottlenose dolphin breaching, before I effortlessly slide from sweltering air to refreshing water. This sensation unceremoniously startles me back to reality, back to being curled up underneath a blanket on a frigid October day, sipping watered-down hot chocolate that burns my tongue.
After leaving the Factory we stopped at a souvenir shop. It had a shark mouth for the door, and I really like sharks. At the store I found a blue shark that my mom bought for me. In the late evening my family, and my grandparents had dinner at The Oyster
Chapter 1: In Chapter 1, we have been introduced to the three main characters in the book, the setting and also the relationship that exists between the characters. • Abel Jackson, is a ten year old boy who loves the sea, “Abel loved being underwater” (Page 5, and is an excellent diver and “could never remember a time when he could not dive” (Page 5). His mum is his teacher, “Everything he knew on land or under the sea he learned from her” (Page 6). He searches for abalone with his mum around the front of Robbers Head. This is where he meets the biggest fish he had ever seen, thinking it is a shark, for the first time.
We stay ready and vigilant, trying to stay stationary throughout the race. This year the weather and sea state was good, allowing more swimmers to make it to the finish line at Hemingway’s Restaurant on the eastern shore. We were needed by two swimmers this year. They all seem to come aboard with disappointment and resignation and we bring water and a towel and whatever else we have to offer them. Finding a place to sit, they settle in to wait for the end of the race, when our boat won’t be needed on the water anymore and we can take them to the marina where their supporters wait to console and offer solace to them.
Memories of cottages in the woods, arranged in a half-moon. Of the tall metal tray return in the dining hall. Of the study tables in the library. The rock where we kissed. The sunken boat in Latham 's lake, Sadie, snapping a photograph, laughing the lunch line, lying next to me at the movie night in her green dress, her voice on the phone, and her apple-flavored lips on mine.

Mrs. Baker brings him up when talking about his legendary parties to which she had never gone. Once Nick gets to know Gatsby better he joins him for one of his parties and describes the house and all of the luxurious items it contained. “There was music from my neighbor's house through the summer nights. In his blue gardens men and girls came and went like moths among the whisperings and the champagne and the stars. At high tide in the afternoon I watched his guests diving from the tower of his raft, or taking the sun on the hot sand of his beach while
Arthur laid out a thick scarlet blanket beneath the shade of the towering elm tree at the edge of the lake. The day could not have been more ideal: warm, sunny, and breezy, filled with the melody of joyful bird songs. But aside from the delightful summer weather, the perfect company thrilled Arthur. “I cannot believe today is the day!” said Guinevere with a grin, setting down the heavy picnic basket she carried, urging Arthur to take a seat beside her. “We’ve been married for a whole year.” He sat down next to her, cupped her face, and pressed a soft kiss to her lips.
