The Caves
As my feet landed on the sand, my feet sank into the sand. I bounced over to the caves and waddle over the sharp rocks – they made dints in my feet. I slide and jump over the rocks and squeezed through the caves. I found a hole full of water – I hop in and got for a swim. It is like a spa but not as hot. The water fill my rashie and I shiver as the cold water smashes my back. I saw lot of crabs and starfish. As the tide come in, dad shouts “we need to go before we get stuck!”
