The Beach
We went to the beach.
When we got there, there were a lot of people.
But I didn’t mind, for I was glad to be there.
I got to smell the fresh, sweet air.
To feel the nice, light ocean breeze.
To feel the warm sand underneath me, tickling my toes.
When it was lunchtime, my family sat down on the towels to eat a delicious meal.
After that, we went in the water to play in the waves.
When it started to get dark, my mother decided it was time to leave the beach and go home.
I was sad to leave, but I had a great time.

Long ago, there were no computers, television, cellular phones, or telephones.
But today, we use them to watch sports, news, weather, movies and cartoons.
We also use them to check and write our emails.
Finally,we use them to call our friends and family.
In the future, there’s going to be a lot of technology around the world

We drink water everyday to get hydrated.
Plants need it in order to grow
We swim in oceans and pools.
We even take showers and baths with it.
No matter what it looks like, salt or fresh, we still use it for our everyday use.
