Carks’ adventure on the beach
Posted November 29, 2011on:
Last week we went to the beach, at a place named El Tulate. Our hotel was on an island there, a sandy island with coconut trees and banana trees. We got there on a lancha, but the ride was fast, like a snap, because the island isn’t very far from the shore.
When we first got there we walked on the beach for a couple minutes and then we went swimming in the swimming pool because it was getting dark and my mom was afraid we would be swept out to sea.
In the middle of the night, my dad got up to go to the bathroom and when he was walking back to bed he stepped on something and it bit him. Then he turned on the light and he saw a scorpion on the floor where he had stepped on it! So the scorpion had stung him. He got his first aid kit out and tried to see if there was a stinger in his foot but there wasn’t. Scorpions don’t have stingers, but they have poison.
The next day me and my dad and my sister went out to the ocean in the morning, and we dived under big waves and jumped over small waves. On the beach we saw crabs, shells in some places, and jellyfish in some places. Then we went and dried off, got our clothes on and went to lunch.
For lunch we walked down the beach to a place where there were lots of other people, but they weren’t tourists they were locals. There were coconuts for sale for four quetzales, the man would cut the coconuts on one side first with a machete and then a smaller cut on the other side and the smaller cut opened a hole where you could poke a straw through to drink the coconut milk. There were pigs running around on the beach and under the tables looking for food. We got fish for lunch, A got one half and I got the other, she got the tail and I got the head.
Then we walked through town looking for an ATM but we didn’t find one. We took a tuk-tuk to the ATM in the next town.
