Personal Narrative: My Cabin, In Ericson, Nebraska

Good Essays
We all have that place to get away and be free. A retreat. My retreat is the cabin, in Ericson, Nebraska. At the cabin away from the people, away from the social media, a person can have fun, explore, and be free. There’s a lot of great activities at the cabin, and great activities usually create great memories. The cabin as a retreat gives a person the opportunity to catch up with their inner selves.
The cabin allows for the opportunity for life to slow down. I wake up when I want, I eat when I want, I go to bed when I want. There are no alarms nor schedules. Everyday changes to how I want it to be. I’m in control, I got this.

There are multiple nature trails to go for a hike, back roads for walks, jogs and runs. The Cedar River goes right through the lake, making it available for many different activities. These events include canoeing, tubing, tanking, and kayaking. There’s a drop off spot under a bridge and a get out spot at one of the two campgrounds. Floating down the river itself could take a couple of hours, but you must include snack breaks, rest stops, and play breaks. Going down the river also includes the traditions. All newcomers, people who are experiencing their first time down the river, must lie in Big Springs. Big Springs is the biggest spring along the river and it is required that new comers lay in the ice cold water for ten seconds.

The Swimming Hole is not the only place to go swimming. If you have a dock or you have a friend that has a dock you can swim from there. Another place available for swimming is the dam, preferably below the dam. Although, while swimming down at the dam be sure to watch for fishermen and their pesky lures. Fishing is a very common activity to participate in. Fishing can take place at the boat dock, the handicap dock, a dock that you own or a friend is letting you borrow, and the most obvious, off of the banks and off of your boats, if you have one. If you’re skilled enough to catch any kind of turtle they can be put into the Ericson Turtle Races. Yes I know the turtle races sounds ridiculous, but they’re actually pretty fun and interesting. Turtles but into a ring and which ever ones makes it out first is the winners. Whoo Hoo. Plus, since it's kind of back to nature you can camp and tent, there are outhouses to

    You can get there if you walk through a trail deep in the woods. I love going to Sandy Beach with my mom and dad. Sometimes I go kayaking, sometimes I sit and watch people swim and sometimes I splash around in the shallow end with my floaties. Swimming looks fun to me, but it also seems very scary. Instead of swimming in the pond, I like to skip rocks, and look for fish, turtles and frogs in the water and along the beach.…
