Our language teacher, Pilar Pando, asked us to write a description of nature, people or both. At the same time, we had picture it as if it was the first time we had been there and write it in narrative form. For my description, I chose Lapad Beach which is in Croatia.
It was very early, and the sun seemed to launch through the sky, as it rose to illuminate the whole town. I was in Lapad Beach, Croatia accompanied by the loneliness of the peaceful and silent scenery.
As my eyes first met the wondrous and sublime view; and my nose first smelled the scent of the fresh and misty air; as my dry mouth first savored the saltiness of the splash of waves; and my feet first touched the smooth white stoned path to the sea; as my ears first heard the gentle rhythm of the clashing waves, I knew I was right where I belonged.
Step by step I approached the sea shore, until I was fully submerged in the water. It reflected on my delicate skin, and the transparency of it seemed appalling. I was amazed as I swam further and further away from the beach, how something so mysterious and unknown could result so beautiful and familiar. It was there were I watched the isolated clouds in the sky. The rays of the sun penetrated on my body, and there was sunshine in my soul. What a fantasy it had become, a fantasy that would depart and come.
