In FL beach, the sand felt soft on my toes, the waves were crashing on the silky sand, and I was having a blast. It was in the city of course where else would it have been. I was on a secret mission, it was very hard to get past my parents bedroom, they are still grunting. My mission was to go to the laser park without sounding the alarms. I got there very quickly, because I ran for my life. Until, I heard a noise in the tree above my head. I looked up, and then Word girl jumped on my head. She said'' sorry I thought you were a evil villain. In the end she asked me why I was walking. I told her I wanted to go to a laser park, She boomed ''really ''.Word girl walked me home and told me she would take me to a laser park someday. Maybe someday ,yeah!

One time my mom took me to the park to have fun. I walked over to the volleyball court and, played with my mom. She was like a seal with a ball i got serve. Then i decided to amble along the walkway around the park. I saw a bird glide from a tree to snatch a worm. At the lake my mom were having lunch but, when i look over the water my mum pushed me into the water with a splash. I trudge through the water and grabbed my mom's hand and tugged here into the water. Also i got out my scooter and took a little stroll with my scooter. Then we took out the bread then fed it to the ducks. It was time to go so i marched to the car and drove off.

It was a cold and windy day of 40 degrees. But my parents notice? No they did not. It was my birthday and I was turning 9. They said they were taking me swimming. I let out a sigh and slowly walked over to my sneakers. I pulled them on. I put on my jacket and got into the car. After a couple of hours... HA! It was 3 hours 43 min. and 18 seconds and a half second. How do I know? I counted! That's how! Anyway... after a couple of hours we pulled up at a swimming club. Swimming was not the only thing they had. They also had ping pong, basket ball, soccer, a running coarse, a work out room and tons of other stuff. We got in there and I was surprised to see all of my friends there. I walked up to my dad just in time to see him hold out a check of 250$ to the cashier! I did not say a word. Just then a young woman with a nametag marked Rosamond came up to me and my father told me to go with her. She led me to a warm pool. My friends were already there. And it was not just any pool! NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was a pool filled with gold fish and all the other pet fish you might have. The bottom had real sand from the sea! It was the best thing I had witnessed in my life! I pulled on my swimming gear and dived in! At the bottom I also saw, clams, seaweed and coral of all colors! My feet touched the sandy bottom as I ambled along wandering down in the world of the sea. My friends joined me in my wonderland and they all saw the wonders that I saw. It was my best birthday ever.

One day I took a stroll to the pool. I saw a dog in somebody's backyard. He was black and white and really big. He was barking at me. I spoke to the dog, but he didn't bark back so I ambled to the park. Then I saw children at the playground. They were swinging and sliding. I kept trudging to the pool. I was near the street and almost to the pool. Finally I crossed the street and I made it to the pool.

Hannah, 11 from Milford, New Hampshire
One time I took a walk with my yellow Labrador Retriever, Tucker. However, it wasn't really a walk as he always tries to run ahead of me instead of ambling along nicely. It's very hard to take a simple stroll with him. Therefore, I decided-since it would be more fun, also-to just run with him. There's no use trying to saunter slowly along with that dog. My mother and sister were also on the walk with us, but they were way behind us, almost a whole street. As we ran, I could feel the air flying through my hair and I could see the wind whipping through Tucker's whiskers. It was a moist morning and the sun was just rising, displaying an iridescent array of colors. Chirping birds were aerial. As we pressed on through petite-sized puddles, my heart pounded wildly and I was breathing really fast, each breath become more and more short with each inhale and exhale. Finally, our adventure of a walk led us back to our house, and we were both very tired and thirsty. Tucker and I love going on walks together!
