Introduction

Creative Writing The water ripples over the little stones in the short section where the amazingly clear water is relatively shallow. Sometimes you see minute fish rapidly making their way down stream, which to them must be a rocky rapid. The water then becomes fifty times deeper. You can see tiny creatures causing disturbance to the sandy river bed. The grassy bank on one side is a place where I have often sat to contemplate life and what I shall make of mine.

The bank is somewhat steep and has a thick blanket of variegated greenery. At the bottom there is a flat path used by a menagerie of animals, it is around a foot wide. The grass is worn down low in the middle of the level towpath. A little further up the river the bank's green blanket has slipped back and the brown sheet below is revealed.

At the bottom of this the bank is a tree which leans thirstily towards the river. ...read more.

Conclusion

The bridge is no ordinary bridge, this one you have to shin across a six inch rounded piece of wood, which is harder than it sounds with a bus height drop into a river threatening you.

If you continue up the tree you can keep on up until the limbs become too slender to take your weight. But by that time you are above the main canopy anyway. It is nice to sit in the comfortable crow's nest and watch the world go by. But when you have had enough of the world you can clamber back down into the secret canopy and watch the water ripple over the little stones. ...read more.
