Introduction

GCSE Coursework Original Writing - The Beach The perfect seal of the horizon begins to break to reveal the gleaming crown of the sun: a new day has begun. Slowly ascending into the cold dark sky the sun glows vibrantly with delight, the intense colours fill the sky with warmth; pink grapefruits, zesty lemons, citrus oranges and cherry reds detailed in the sky, very much like a brightly coloured Persian rug. The sea so subtle sparkles preciously brushing up against the seashore. Looking at the crystal waters that stretch out far into the horizon getting darker and deeper but still very calm, the ripples are gentle. As though walking on a land of gold, the sand so soft, so smooth glistens as it reflects the suns rays with joy of its presence. Cool, light and refreshing, the breeze gently kisses up against my skin and glides through my hair, sending a gentle shiver up my spine. The rustling of leaves, small orchestra of birds and delicate splashes of the sea are amazingly soothing and relaxing. ...read more.

cars and coaches; as they stepped out their eyes widened and faces glowed with content to see the elegance of the sea. The sea had now changed from a show of colours to a simple ice clear blue which subtly sparkled and foamed as it gushed up the seashore. The perfect painted picture was about to be ruined, people were hypnotised: put under a spell more and more people were arriving bringing their huge amounts of noise; engine roars, chatter, loud laughter, squeals of young children and blasts of loud music from their radios. The seas smooth surface seemed destroyed; people were cramming in, splashing and playing around.

The glossy golden sand couldn't really be seen as it was stabbed with umbrellas, piled with deck chairs and cramped under towels of sunbathing tourists, cooking their plump white flesh, absorbing the suns rays to the maximum. ...read more.

Conclusion

they pack up collecting up their belongings, squeeze back into their cars and coaches and drive off. The sea calms once again, and the ripples get smoother. The sand rough and trampled on is happy to breathe again, says his fair well to the sun. The sun looks down, giving us a last show if his warm, glowing colours. Descending from his throne he glides elegantly towards the horizon, comfortably bedded for a long days rest. Sunless, the beach feels cold; a sharp icy breeze travels from across the ocean pushing itself past me, leaving me shivering from head to toe. The sea turns black like a bottomless hole but the tips of smooth ripples are delicately decorated with touches of silver which now reflect from the moon. The night's sky is a dark blue, but the moon keeps everything calmly lit. Birds have cleared the sky, and nothing can be heard apart from the calm splashes of the oceans water and the rustling of leaves as the wind pushes by. Once again, the beach is deserted.
