One day I was with my family at Arlington Lakes, we were going to go kayaking and paddle boating. I was in the kayak and my Mom, Dad, peter and George were in a paddle boat. We started to go into the lake. It is actually just a reservoir but we call it a lake. I could see way off in the distance the other side of the lake. My only purpose was to get to the other side. All around me I could smell the fresh smell of water. Around the sides about 50 yards away from each other there were fishermen. I looked in front of my kayak and saw that it was cutting through the water like a knife. Then I looked behind me and saw that my family was way behind me so I decided to practice turning.
Of course it was a bad idea because I was going so fast. I started to turn and suddenly my face was just inches from the water, I immediately flipped my self back over. My heart was pounding like a charging bull.
“Charlie are you alright?” My mom and dad asked me at the same time. They had finally caught up and looking very worried.
“I’m fine mom,” I told her.
“Are you sure?” My mom asked me.
“Yes,” I told her.
Then I started paddling away but a little bit shakily, I might have been trapped under the kayak. I then made a decision to try to go as fast as I could to try to make a jump off of a wave. I hit a wave and only got above the water by a few inches but it felt like I was flying. I then landed and went super fast, it felt like I was going at a million miles per hour I looked behind me at the rental station. and it looked like a little brown box on the horizon. It looked like it was something that could go in a model train set. My mom then called out to me to tell me it was time to go home.
“Could we stay a little longer, please?” I asked my mom.
“No we can’t, you have a baseball game to go to later today and you need to rest,” she replied. I sighed and started going back.
I decided to run my hand through the water, it was icy cold and felt super refreshing.We went back to the car and went home.
