Personal Narrative Essay: The Beach Drinking At The Beach

Improved Essays
When my body and my mind are at its finest and most content, it is when I’m at the beach swimming in the ocean. The pure sunlight of the beach shines down on my skin and sends warm rays throughout my body that I welcome. After soaking up the sun, I usually spend a significant amount of time in the refreshing and serene ocean. Any ocean on Earth can quickly satisfy my needs of a quick rejuvenation. Along with the replenishing factors that I enjoy at the beach, I also greatly enjoy the various types of animals that exist inside the ocean. Whether it is dolphins, whales, sharks, parrotfish, sea stars, hermit crabs, or various types of fish, I adore trying to view and study these animals. In April of 2017, my family went on a cruise to various islands, one of them being St.Thomas. We had booked an excursion there, and it was to go snorkeling off the boat called the Dancing Dolphin. …show more content…
It was almost as if I were looking in a mirror. The next thing I noticed were the endless green mountains that were overlapping each other across the whole island of St.Thomas. As we made the journey to our first destination, Turtle Cove, the three crew members, Sara, Buck, and Captain Megan made our time on the Dancing Dolphin extremely enjoyable. They offered us refreshments, snacks to eat, and we even did some dancing on the boat. Soon, when we rode the waves closer and closer to Turtle Cove, they handed out our life jackets, flippers, snorkel, and goggles. My sense of adventure was reaching a new high as I realized my adventure was about to begin. Our crew member Buck began telling us safety information, like stay with the group and do not touch anything that you cannot identify. Soon, Sara put her gear on and was ready to take us into Turtle Cove. My levels of excitement and adventure along with my joy of the ocean soared as I neared the beginning of the experience of a

    Our five senses opens us up to so many different things that impact our lives, and my trip to Anna Maria Island is the moment that has impacted how I see the world the most. The beach was, of course, the greatest sight on the island. The water was clearer than any body of water I had ever seen. The waves were calm, and they didn’t always topple over each other and crash like in Daytona Beach. As I looked out into the ocean from where I was sitting on the beach, I could see little kids with their parents playing in the sand and in the water, either building sand castles or floating on tubes because the water was so calm.…

    Spending every waking moment I could in the ocean told me I was like a fish dancing around the waters. I just couldn't get enough. I could float out in the water and feel the rhythm of the ocean forever. The fish would swim by and brush my ankles.

    The wind would dance around the boat as we sail to a popular island. Once we arrive at the island, I'd see why the name of the island is Shell Island: there would be viscous crabs and shells covering the beach. Some crabs were scurrying to the boat, wanting to know what in the ocean that contraption is. I bet Nemo would tell them, "It's OK, it's just a butt!" While there, I would find tons of shells ranging from the size of a penny, to the size of probably the Eiffel Tower.…

    As I looked out at the gorgeous light blue Caribbean Sea I saw a large white boat in the distance with a rope connected to a parachute sailing over it with multiple people in the boat. My family and I were standing on the pure white Dominican Republic sand waiting for our turn to take the dinghy out and meet the parasail boat for our first experience parasailing ever.
