Day At The Beach
The day was beautiful, so we decided to go to the beach and have a picnic. Our family was visiting so everyone rode in the van.
We found the perfect picnic table under the shaded area. We set the food on the table, ate, reminisced about things in the past, told jokes and laughed a lot.
Afterwards, we walked down to the water and took a stroll down the beach with waves splashing on our legs.
The clouds began to form and became very dark. The wind was strong, making it difficult to walk along the beach.
We turned around and began to walk back in the other direction. The wind seemed to push us along the way.
We saw, what looked like a tornado, so we rushed to the picnic area.
Just as we reached the picnic area, it began to rain, the wind blew debris everywhere, and each of us grabbed things from the table and rushed to the van.
We were sitting in the van watching the rain pound the vehicle, debris flying all around, and trees swaying in the wind.
We heard a loud noise from the thunder and the lightening was constantly flashing.
Much to our surprise, we looked in the direction of where we saw the tornado and discovered it was not a tornado after all.
It was a huge crane near some condo’s, but it had looked so much like a tornado when the clouds were dark and the visibility of the area impaired.
