Kayak Tip-Over Cold waves lap at my back. My arms and legs tingle with the thought of an underwater creature dragging me down into the watery depths.
Earlier, that day had started out like any old vacation. The weather was warm, and there was a pleasant breeze licking at the waves in the lagoon.
The house was on a tranquil lagoon with rippling water. No one else was in the water that day. The house had kayaks, body boards, and a paddle boat! Perfect for us kids!
All was going well until the two boys got bored. They had been lying in the sun for too long, and they were swiftly accumulating girly tans. Suddenly, Josh had a marvelous idea!
The idea was perfect. There was only one catch: Our mothers came up behind us. We looked at her for a second, and then jumped into action. Ana manned the one-person kayak while Madison and I took the two-seater. We pushed off, soldiers on a mission! Ana reached Tino and Josh before Madison and I did.
The situation was worse than we had thought. Tino and Josh were flailing about in the water. In trying to reach the floaty, they had fallen out of the paddle boat. Ana had tied the kayak and paddle boat together, hoping to give it a tow because the current was too strong to paddle the boat back.
The boys were still in the water, unable to get in the boat. Finally, Josh managed to get in the paddle boat, leaving Tino to fend for himself. Meanwhile, Madison and I struggled with our kayak. We had moved away from the others and into the middle of the lagoon.
Seeing Tino swimming towards us, we made room for him on board. He reached us and heaved himself on. Madison and Tino sat with their legs dangling, resting.
The cold water hit me like a wall. I surfaced, sputtering water. I prayed to God, thanking Him that we had life jackets. My first concern was that we had to right the kayak. Unfortunately, this was easier said than done.Chapter 1 - The Flight.
