The Beach (description)

Extracts from this document...


Reece Buckle IGCSE Descriptive writing The atmosphere at the beach is almost intoxicating, in all its tranquility. Glistening sun rays, which reflect off the oceans smooth surface, leave the adjacent sand particles cloaked in a layer of red light, like the sand grains themselves are emitting a luxurious aura. Whilst gazing across the shoreline, I notice a minute scale battle between two seagulls and a long fat chip. The first seagull that plundered the chip was protectively nibbling at it, when the second one soared towards him like a hurricane of feathers, bombarded the chip with his piercing talons, and then rocketed off.

All 4 adults have taken sides, and are battling it out, showering each side with the airborne beach balls. The dedicated beach ball area has a sturdy net, long enough to support numerous games of beach ball/volley ball. As the day progresses the amount of people around me has dramatically decreased from a being packed, to a scarce amount.

The lingering hotdog scent causes my stomach to rumble involuntarily Waiting in the queue feels almost an eternity, until I finally reach first place.

I mumble back ?An extra-large jumbo frankfurter please,? whilst practically drooling. I am hypnotized by his rotating spatula, flipping over the other hotdogs & burgers. The hotdog crumbles deliciously with every bite, giving me bursts of energy that courses through my blood stream, to aid me on my journey back up the pebble-stone fortress leading towards the car park.
