But that breath would have done him good to keep as he was flipped into the air and thrown into the water. As Odysseus took stock of his new surroundings he looked off to his right and saw the crystyl blue eye of the monster. Odysseus took all of his strength and punched the beast in the eye, and then swam as hard he could with his legs. Gray Eyed Athena watched in shock as the monster had the audacity to not only use the tactic of retreating into the water to its advantage but to also forgo the warning she had given it. After a few frantics minutes of Odysseus trying to flip the boat over, Gray Eyed Athena used her divine powers to stab the creature in the eye.
The National Championship Game will be something I will never forget. Being able to walk into Magic or Animal Kingdom will never get old. Waiting to go on a huge waterslide is one of the best and worst feelings at the same time. There’s something about laying on the beach or in the ocean that is just so relaxing, especially when you can hear the waves crash up against the shore. I can’t wait until my next trip to Florida so I can make even more
She felt it deep within her, and knew that this day would determine her fate. But she never expected the grand ship that approached her from beyond the horizon. To suddenly face a member of a completely foreign species is deterring, but to come across a boat full of them was a completely bewildering experience. She watched in awe as the humans ate and laughed and danced, twirling and moving and jumping with those legs, and oh how she wanted it all. How she wanted to dance as beautifully as they could, like she was swimming out of water.
Dolphins-World, a foundation whose goal is to raise awareness about dolphin captivity and inform people about dolphins in general, pointed out, “Orcas (Orcinus orca) and large sharks dispute the title of “The most dangerous predator of dolphins,” and is that both, with their size and other physical characteristics and, of course, their natural need to feed on meat, find dolphins attractive.” On the other hand, dolphins thrive in their natural environment and should not be kept in captivity for this reason. Maddalena Bearzi, a photo journalist and blogger, reported to National Geographic, “Dolphins, like some other animals, are essentially complex social mammals that need expansive space to live in. A tank can’t even begin to address these needs…” This data suggests that dolphins are very social animals that use a sizable amount of space and when they are being kept in small tanks, they are suffering from the need for more room to be able to do all the activities they would do in the wild. In one case, human interaction caused two dolphins to be captured illegally and sold to a hotel with a “swim with the dolphins” program. When the hotel no longer wanted them, the two dolphins were left to die in an aged and dirty tank.

Swimming at Norway Lake Every summer, my family and I go camping. There is a special place that we always go to, it is Norway Lake Campground. There has never been any incidents where I would say that it is unsafe or boring, until this on summer day. It was the summer of 2008, it was beautiful out. The birds were chirping, children were laughing, and you could feel the sun tingle on your skin.
After a few waves I started understanding why stance is so important while surfing. While I was still falling a lot I was beginning to be able to stand up more and more. I began being able to ride waves more and more until finally the stars aligned, the heavens were kind, the sea was gentile with me and I rode a wave all the way. It was amazing. In looking at the video my dad took it looks awkward and unimpressive but it felt epic!
When everyone else was cheering over our new girls swimming their best times I was in the locker room moping about mine. I could not even put on a happy smile for my last home meet. After that depressing meet, I decided that I needed a mental makeover. Instead of being degrading toward myself and others I was going to be positive. After all, if these were going to be my last few days on the swim team I better make them count.
In an act that would have humiliated her just the night before, she grabbed a sharp piece of scrap next to her and cut a large piece of the skirt off. As the blue cloth floated away, she surprisingly felt no remorse. She began to lay down again when she heard a soft grunt near her. She sat up and looked into the water to see a beautiful seal with familiar eyes floating in the water. Her mind took a while to process what was happening.
After she barely survived a shark attack she was back in the water about a month later. Bethany didn’t even care about the shark attack all she cared about was to get back in the water on her surf board. ‘’I was not afraid.’’ Said Bethany Every once in a while she would get scared when she saw a figure under her board in the water but she wouldn’t let it bring her down and quit on her dream. Bethany was also self-confident. Even when people wouldn’t believe in her and they thought she couldn’t do it she still tried and she proved them wrong.
Sharkasm The year was two thousand, fifteen , Claire Spedale, Janie Spedale, and I were enjoying a leisurely day on the warm white sand of Rosemary Beach. Lathered in dermatologist recommended sunblock, we embrace the warm essence of the summer sun. The Spedale’s had obtained several chairs, boogie boards, and most importantly Tahiti Island. Tahiti Island was an extravagant inflatable island with drink holders, chairs, and a slide. The entire extended Spedale family attended the annual family beach trip, and that day were all there on the ever so coveted Tahiti Island.
Reacting quickly, I blew my whistle loudly to alert the other guards nearby that I had to make a rescue. Jumping into the water with my tube in front of me, I hurriedly swam over to the girl handing her the buoy. She grabbed on tightly and began to gasp for air. It took a few minutes, but once I brought her to safety, and even though I knew she was grateful, she quickly jumped out of the pool and ran away, almost as if nothing had happened. As I went back to my position, full of adrenaline, I reflected on how odd it was to save a life when neither she nor her parents gave the event, nor me, a second thought.
Beaching myself, I crawl about three feet before throwing up the water in my lungs. After my lungs were purged of any unnecessary liquids I stood, leaning on my good foot, then looking at my damaged arm. The pain hits me and I collapse and throw up again. Feeling faint I do my best to pull myself together before I pass out. Standing once again and trying to look at the positives, I realize I am not dead, and the pain in my arm may give
A month after the attack she was already back in the water and surfing. In 2004 her book Soul Surfer: A True Story of Faith, Family, and Fighting to Get Back on the Board hit the shelves, and became a best seller.

Then in 2007, she become a pro surfer and joined the pro circuit.
