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.

You can feel the force of the hard rhythmic waves as they push you back to shore and then you fell the sharp shells and rough rocks as you step out of the water. If you walk on the beach you will smell the scent of fish and seaweed and when you walk into the woods you will smell the pungent scent that will remind you of dog waste, you will also smell a strong smell of grass after being mowed and if you walk back to camp you will smell the sweet scent of mosquito spray, the smell of rice and chicken and herbs.
I took my plate and began eating outside by the pool. After breakfast I put my bathing suit on and jumped into the pool. The cold water refreshed me from the hot beaming sun. I went back inside to dry off and got ready for the beach. I packed a small bag of books, towels, sunglasses and a camera.

Steinbeck explains, “The little roadster bounced along the dirt road by the river, raising the birds and driving the rabbits into the brush. Two cranes flapped heavily over the willow-line and dropped into the river bed”. In this part Steinbeck gives the reader a great picture of the area around them by using imagery.
