Hi guys! It’s me, Magda! How was your Victoria Day weekend? Mine was GREAT! If you read Ivy’s Digital Diary, you know that I went to Armstrong, Ontario for 3 days. It was SO much fun! I had enough time to take pictures for 1 photoshoot and 1 photostory. Today, I’ll be posting the photostory. So, enjoy!
“Piper! C’mon!” I called impatiently as I stepped out onto the beach. “Coming!” called Piper as she ran towards me. We were so excited to spend the hot day by the lake.
“Wow!” Piper exclaimed when she caught up to me. “The beach looks amazing!” Piper was definitely right.
Sticks and logs were scattered over the hot, beige sand. The sun reflected on the deep,blue lake. A couple of people were carrying kayaks from their cars. A few more people were laughing in the water on the far end of the beach, but other than that, the beach was empty.
I sat my towel down of the sand and hopped on it. Piper put her towel beside mine. “It’s such a nice, warm day, don’t you think?” She said cheerfully. “We’re so lucky that we got to go to the beach today!” I nodded.
Since I was wearing my bathing suit under it, I pulled off my dress (Yes, I actually wore a dress!!!!).
Piper and I had fun sitting on our towels and chatting about schoolwork, summertime, and other things. I got a little bored of sitting after a while, though.
The lake is so pretty! I thought. I wonder what the water feels like. Maybe it’s cold like Lake Superior. I’m gonna go check! Then, I turned to Piper.
“Would you mind if I went for a swim?” I asked Piper.
“It’s fine with me!” Piper said. “Tell me how the water is, OK?” I smiled. “Sure!” I said as I jumped off my towel.
I quickly ran to the lake.
I stood at the lake and dipped my foot in. The water was cool, but not cold, and definitely not warm. It was the PERFECT temperature.
When I dived into the water, it splattered in the air. I swam for a while. Then, I walked onto shore.
When I got back to my towel, Piper sat up. “So, how’s the water?” she asked curiously. “Perfect!” I replied. “Then I’ll go for a short swim.” Piper decided.
She jumped into the water and began to swim. Piper is a GREAT swimmer. She actually sometimes signs up for competitive swimming. She has won 3 medals!
“Hey Ivy!” she called from the water. “Let’s play some beach ball!” I smiled. “Great idea!”
Piper stepped out of the water and quickly ran over to where I was standing with the beach ball.
Piper and I passed the beach ball to each other a couple of times. It was lots of fun!
Then, we sat down beside the water and talked. “Hey,” Piper said “Want to go on a walk?” I nodded. “Sure.”
We walked all the way down the beach and back.
When we came back, we enjoyed a picnic of sandwiches and fruit.
Mom even surprised us with ice cream! It was SO delicious! I had chocolate while Piper had vanilla.
We spent the rest of the day relaxing in the sun. We had SO much fun at the beach! I wonder if I could go there everyday…
I hope you guys enjoyed this short story! There should be a photoshoot from Armstrong up soon. Anyways, bye!
