I slowly and scaredly walk into the shallow,freezing cold river. My goosebump covered legs shiver as I slowly kneel down onto my knees. I see a tiny little goldfish swim straight past my legs. I can hear all of my cousins screaming and laughing. I see a huge mossy rock next to where my cousins are swimming. I swim over to the huge rock faster than a cheetah.
I climb onto the humongous moss covered rock. The huge green rock is super slippery, I put my foot closer to the top and then… Slip. I have fallen back into the river. Lucky I have fallen into the deep part. Lots of tiny, shiny little goldfish swim past me as I struggle to stand up. I try to catch a beautiful little fish but it swims away before I can even touch it.
My biggest cousin Julie sees a little ledge on a small cliff that we can jump off. We all swim over to the ledge and Julie climbs up. The water is WAY to shallow to jump into. It is only up to my knees.”Julie, it is only up to my knees you can't jump from there, you will hurt yourself” I shout”.”That suck’s” Julie says as she carefully climbs down the steep ledge. We are walking back to the deep part to have a water fight and splash.I am having a fantastic time at the river. The river is my favorite place ever.
