Personal Narrative: My Trip To Indiana Beach

Decent Essays
I was sinking down, down, and down, for every heart beat I take, I am still alive. Is that what it feels like when you are about to drown?

It all started back to a gorgeous hot summer in Indiana. When my mom and my dad had decided to give me and my sister a little surprise. We don't go on vacations a lot because of my parents "job". So when my parents announce that we are going to Indiana Beach. I thought it was a miracle. I jumped, shouted, ran to hug my parents, doing whatever a excited girl could possibly do."Where are we going!" I had asked, my voice way too high, and full of too much excitement.

"Not telling, little dolphin," my mom had joked with a mysterious smile on her face.

"When are we going

To the Indiana Beach!

"Really! Yeah!" I cheered with my sister.

"Aw Jerry!" my mom said.

"Oops,to late, my bad!" said my dad. Then we all laughed.

It was a long drive to Indiana Beach, I thought I might explode with eagerness. We finally arrived during the hottest part of the day, so we decided to rent a boat, and go for a swim. I had always loved the water (even though I don't really know how to swim). Even as a baby, my mother told me that I used to splash water everywhere, making her clean up afterward. I would laugh at that.

The water of Indiana Beach gleams under the sun as we arrived on the boat that we had rented. The boat was enormous, with a towable tube in the back. I was excited, I can't wait to try the towable tube. We rode around to get used to the boat.

Then my dad asked, "who wants to try the towable tube?"

"Me!" my sister shouted.

"Be careful, and remember to keep your balance," said my

"Okay," I said. I will try. I got on the towable tube, and my dad started to drive. The water and air exploded into my face as I shouted faster, faster. It was so fun until someone shouted, "stop!" then I lost my balance and plunged into the water. I realized that the "stop!" have come from me. I also realized that I was drowning, I was sinking deeper down into the water. I was in a panic attack, I can't think of what to do. All I can think of at that moment is that I am going to die, I am going to die. I can see fishes swimming around me. I so wish I were them at that moment. I kept struggling, scaring the fishes away. Then I hear voices, they sound like they were from outer space, but as I listen more carefully I can hear, so.....yur.....jacket! Suddenly, as fast as lighting, I remember my life jacket, and I let it bring me back to
