The Beautiful Beach
Walking in the scorching sand, grains sliding through my feet, I watched the dazzling movement of the turquoise waves. The glistening sun heated up my long black beach chair where I had nicely laid my towel for later. I strode up to the clear blue waves, the pleasant feel of the water reaching for my toes. I continued to ease in, getting waist deep in the water, the fish swimming around my legs with a tingling feeling. A few minutes later, I found myself swimming all around the ocean searching for many other beautiful fish. Out of the corner of my eye, I spot the breathtaking fire red starfish resting on a rock. Its peaceful body lounging while facing upwards to the magnificent tropical sunlight. I wish I could be a starfish and just rest on a smooth, dark rock, resting all day, looking up to the tropical weather in the refreshing water of Dominican Republic. Don’t you?
