Hey! Guess what? I got to go to the beach today! My mom took me into the water for some more swimming lessons. I want to be ready to go to the Big Dog Swim at Blaisedel Pool over labor day.
We really had fun! First I ran around the whole beach. I saw this rock I thought was a killer rock or something worse maybe. So I let it have the what-for. I blammed it pretty good with a sound barking. Then I scampered up the banks, sniffed around in the sand, got a lot of pebbles and shells in between my toes. That was werid!
After that I waded out into the water as far as I could, all my myself. Then my mom came in beside me, and she put her arms under my chest firmly so I could feel that she had me, and then she just took us both into the deeper water where I couldn't feel the sand under my feet anymore. I paddled my legs, and kept my head above the water. My mom stayed with me. I wasn't afraid! I could feel she was strong and could hold me if I got too tired. Then we made for the shore and when I could tell the water was shallower, she let me go all by myself. I swam about ten "strokes" all by myself! I was swimming!We did this about five times. After that, I was pretty tired. So we went to rest in the shade. We got some water and I watched Cuailgne learn to kyak with my Dad. She's pretty brave. I don't think kyaking is for me!
