Every year since i was a baby My mother and I go to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina for a vacation. I've always been a fish. I love swimming in the ocean, the pools, water parks, anywhere you can think of. My mother and i would go out really deep in the ocean and just float while the sun kissed our skin. The water was warm on my body like it was giving me a big hug. We would stay out there for hours and just talk. at the end of the day when the sun goes down over the water, we would go to the pool. I absolutely loved water as a kid. Going to the beach was the best part of summer as a kid.

Eventually, the older i got, the least interested i was in water. I would only lay out in the sun and get a tan and i would just get as far out there as my waist line, but when i was with a group

Her mom did not know what to do. She was obviously freaking out because her kids on were on the verge of being killed by the ocean. Her parents ran out into the ocean and tried their best to safe the children. The waves started pulling them under as well, It was getting harder and harder to bring them to the shore. All of their feet were getting stuck in the sand and falling like tumbleweed. After getting all beat up and bruised up, the kids got saved from the torture. When she told me that story I don't think i ever froze like that in my life. I had multiple dreams about that specific event happening to me.

    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.
