PT3 Essay - Picnic at seaside
During the last school holidays,my parents decided to bring us for a picnic at the seaside.We hit the road at 8 a.m.Before leaving,we prepared all the things that was needed for the picnic.After a half an hour drive,we arrived at Teluk Batik beach.We could feel the smell of salty water as we stepped onto the beach.There were many people when we arrived there.
Soon,we decided to look for a suitable picnic spot.We decided to spread our mat under a shady tree.My brother and I lost our patient and had changed into our swimming trunks.My brother who was still a beginner in swimming swam with the help of a float.We jumped into the crystal clear seawater.Our warm body chilled when the cold sea water touches our body.The sea water was savoury!We enjoyed ourselves splashing each other.We were on cloud nine at that moment.
After we were exhausted,we returned to the seashore.We enjoyed the beautiful panoramic scenery of the blue water.The sight of the white foam on the shore was eye pleasing.I took out a canned of carbonated drink to quench my thirst.After that,my mother took out the food we had brought.We made our own sandwiches from the sardine cans and sliced the bread.
My sister and brother decided to build sandcastles while my parents and I enjoyed the sea breeze.Soon enough,we decided to play beach volleyball.My brother,sister and I were in a team while my parents were in another team.The match was exciting because the loser would be punished.The match came to an end.We lost out to my parents.Luckily,my parents only punished us to pack the things before leaving.
We decided to leave the exciting place at dusk.Before leaving,we made sure to take some screenshots.I had a whale of a time on that day.I hope I could visit this memorable place in future.
Excitedly, we drove off from the city of George Town through the picturesque fishing village near Tanjung Tokong in Penang, waiting to catch a glimpse of the sea.
At last, we sighted the blue waters, sparkling in the sunlight. We looked out for a clean and shady spot to spend the day as we cruised along. It was a joy to see the graceful coconut palms swaying in the breeze. We saw, too, fishermen's little houses on stilts scattered along the share.
Finally, we parked our car at a shady spot under some coconut palms. The white, sandy beach was full of tiny crabs scurrying about. My sister and I could not resist catching them. The shells we picked were also interesting. Some were shaped like conical hats, others like fans and there were some spiral-shaped ones tinted with grey and brown hues. One large, grey shell with a long, narrow slit produced the sound of sea waves as I held it to my ear. The pieces of driftwood brought in at high tide by the waves were of artistic shapes. These we collected for flower-arrangement.
After a while, we swam in the sea which was cool and pleasant. I saw sailing boats in the distance and fishermen busy with their catch. Then we sat on the beach and ate sandwiches, cookies, peanuts and fruit followed by iced drinks.
The sun was now fiercely hot, and we felt tired and sleepy as we lay on the sandy beach. My brother took snaps of us playing in the sea and climbing up high rocks. After our lunch of curry and rice, we swam again till the late afternoon before we changed for our journey home. It was an enjoyable day by the sea as it was a welcome change from our usual busy and monotonous routine in the city.
