Childhood Memories Speech!
Here we are me and my family on this giant boat heading to Green Island in Cairns. We went up onto the top level of the boat and just when we sat down the boat took off like lightning. The crisp wind brushed against my hair as we zoomed through the waves.
All we could see LITERALLY was miles and miles of water until the island appeared on the horizon. We disembarked the boat onto a massive big jetty leading to land. Once we got further into the centre of the island it all opened up into hidden oasis of shops and cafes. We headed into one of the little shops and got all our snorkelling gear.
We then headed to the beach where we donned our gear and hit the water! Well everyone else did, I was scared! Dad tried to help me but I wasn't having a bar of it, then I saw everyone else having so much fun that I thought what's the worse that could happen, drown? I won’t drown I'm a good swimmer... kind of. So off I went into the deep blue sea, disaster struck! a giant fish swam past me and I got such a fright.
Once I got my breath back I was fine I knew these fish didn't want to eat me, well at least these ones didn't. So I started floating further out. As I swam past all kinds of fish and coral including fish that looked like Nemo and Dory. Just as I was admiring a beautiful angel fish I heard my brother yelling out “ guys come over here I found a giant turtle with a little baby one following it”. So we all went to see the turtles.
I couldn't even believe how big the adult one was it was just a little bit bigger than a bike wheel. I held my breath and dived under the water to touch it. The texture was very different to anything I've touched before. I swam back up to catch my breath so I wouldn't drown. And then we started heading back to the island. We climbed aboard the boat and this time the waves were very idyllic. We finally got back to Cairns and jumped into the car to head home to the hotel to have dinner. And that was my trip to the Barrier Reef in Cairns, Australia.
