    “SCREECH”, went Logan’s tires as they slid across the smooth black pavement of the street. “You ready yet?” he yells to me as I jump out the front door. “Yup” I replied. I hopped onto my bike and we headed downtown to the Voyager to go fishing. It was a warm summer day, and we were enjoying one of the first days of our summer vacation.

We pulled our fishing poles off the back of the back of our bikes and set them up with bait and hooks. We were ready to catch some fish.
