100 Word Challenge
This week, you neeed to write 100 words using this opening phrase as a starting point:
The crystal water was so clear you could see the bottom of………………
The crystal water was so clear you could see the bottom of the blue ocean. You could also see wild and amazing fish swimming swiftly through the clean ocean. Meanwhile, on the top of the sea there were people kayaking. James, who was lying on the beach, decided to go for a swim. He walked down the long sandy beach whilst putting his snorkeling gear on. As soon as he got to the sea he immediately jump in and swam a mile out from shore. Then he looked down and there in front of his eyes he saw amazing dolphins playing around and jumping out of the water doing double somersaults.
The crystal water was so clear you could see the bottom of the deep, turquoise sea. As I stepped on to the soft, smooth sand it tickled my feet. When I stepped into the sea endless plains of mountainous blue waves splashed me. However, when I looked back I saw the most mysterious, bizarre house I’d ever seen. As I walked towards it I saw a shadow. It was a woman. When I looked around myself I just saw shadows surrounding me. What was happening to me? Then it all disappeared. Was it real or was it just a dream?
If I switch the lights off does the wall change colour?
In one of our posts there is a picture of a piece of art that Sumayyah has created. We uploaded it by accident in to a slide show. I am glad that it is on the blog but I don’t want it to be overlooked as it is a brilliant drawing. See if you can find it.
