It was a beautiful day at the lake, my family and I were renting a cottage for a week in July like we usually do every year in the summer. We go up to the Canadian lakes in Michigan (Canadian lakes is a chain of lakes in the middle of Michigan about two hours away from Saline.) It was our second day here and our first real day to go out on the lake and swim, kayak, go on the paddleboat, etc. It was a nice house that had a cabin feel and was made out of almost all wood. The house was right on the lake, and had a nice big lawn that was bright green. I had just woken up about half an hour ago and had just finished eating when Saige asked me a question. “Do you want to go on the paddle boat with me?” said Saige. “Sure, I just need to get ready.” I had …show more content…
“Yeah, I just don’t know if I can get back onto my kayak.” Jackson said struggling to get back up on his kayak. “Do you need help?” I asked Jackson, and then Saige and I paddled towards Jackson and his kayak. Once we got by his paddle boat, Jackson decided to get on our paddle boat because he couldn’t get on his kayak because it was very wobbly. “Do you want us to help you get on?” Saige asked. “I think I’m good,” Jackson said to us. After a few tries and Jackson still couldn’t get on we helped him try. The first time we tried to help him get up he still couldn’t and I thought I hope he can get up otherwise he going to have to have someone get him. But finally after a few tries and the teamwork of me, Saige and, Jackson all trying to get him up onto our paddle boat he finally could get up. We were about to go back when we noticed that his shoes had fallen off his feet and were floating in the water by the paddle, so I picked up the paddle and gave it to Saige while I held onto the kayak that was in the water right next to our paddle boat and Jackson had his slides that had been in the water and were luckily

The Carolina Day Key Middle School had an overnight in September 2015 at a place called Camp Timberlake for Boys so everyone would get to know each other better. On our last day we went on a canoeing trip in the French Broad River and some of our canoes flipped over! One of them was Lacy, Aubrey and Mr. Flamini’s canoe. Lacy and Aubrey were in the canoe, and then Mr. Flamini tried to get in….. and the whole thing flipped. They haven’t even started! Then, about ¾ the way into the ride, Nick, Mac, and Michael's canoe flipped over as well, and they were in one of the most calm parts of the river. The guide had to canoe all the way back up, against the current, and help them get it back right side up. I was in front of mostly everyone except for
When Roger Woodward was 7 years old he went on a boat for the first time in his life. His family was celebrating his 17 year old sister’s birthday with a tour of niagara falls by boat. Rogers mother’s one condition about this trip was that he wore a life jacket because roger did not know how to swim. In not long roger would be falling down the falls. The day was perfect for boating it was warm and the waters were calm. The owner of the boat jim honeycutt let roger steer the boat. They were heading toward sandbar and on the way there the mortar of the boat hit a rock. Honeycutt cut the engine after hitting the rock. They were drifting toward the falls. For some reason Honeycutt had no anchor so he was trying to paddle the other way but the
Some Michigan Heroes can be people that helped you in life or helped you succeed in life. My Michigan Hero is someone that raised me, taught me everything I know in life today. This person is my idol, that gave me a hand when I needed one, or told me to keep my head up and never look down. I wouldn’t know what to do in life if this person wasn’t in it.

It was a hot summer day on Lake Logan Martin, perfect for taking out the jet skis with my best friend Jake. We were showing off and trying to impress some hot girls on a pontoon when all the sudden, Jakes jet ski went flying upside down through the air like a drunk pelican. Before I knew it, all I could see was the bright orange and yellow colors of his jet ski zooming by my head, and Jake hit the water head first causing water to splash all over my face. I rushed over to where his jet ski landed and I was sure he was dead. I dove into the lake and grabbed him, he felt lifeless as I drug him to the surface. A patrol boat sped up to us and helped pull him on the boat. Thankfully he just suffered from a broken clavicle and a broken arm but it
Actively participating in the betterment of my community is a trait that my family has instilled in me. It not only makes the lives of others better but makes me feel satisfied in providing them that service, that being said I try to help whenever I can and wish to continue doing so for the rest of my life.
I have been in the now disturbing Quetico lake for the last 12 years of my life. I can’t take this. I have one way out, and that is to get someone in, trapped. I am captured in the deepest part of the Quetico lake, 300 feet below, I have gone mental. Around every month someone passes and I restrain myself from knocking, pleading for help. The only way I can get out is if I knock on a boat that passes and put them in my place. I never wanted too, for twelve years I haven’t. I know they will be trapped with a terrible way to escape. It will mess with their mind, but I could not take the pain of going insane. I was stuck...until now.
Michigan's capital and my current place of residence. DeWitt is wonderful place for children to spend their early years, and for many of my acquaintances, still a nice place to live. When I was young, Dewitt was a growing and friendly community. The atmosphere was brimming with positive attitudes and possibilities. It sounds corny, but honestly driving down the street, with every waving arm offering a warm welcome, you would think you entered a cheesy family sitcom neighborhood.
I was bored. The car ride was long. I thought the trip to my grandpa's boat lake Michigan would be short, but I was wrong. We hit every red light and I was losing my patience. We finally get there, the weather is bad, it’s raining, I had a sniffle, and we catch nothing. “Patience” grandpa said. A few weeks later we go out again, still nothing, but at least it wasn’t raining that day. I’d never fished before so when my hook caught pieces of seaweed I thought it was a fish. My grandpa reminded me that you must be patient. Then I reminded him that he “guaranteed” me that I would catch a fish by the end of the summer. I told him that we would catch fish if we went out into the lake instead of just fishing off of the back of this boat on the
Tall, brown eyes and creative, the funniest person in the room and makes you want to laugh. He was the only one there for me when I needed a second hand or to have each other's backs, he means the world to me. The only friend I had as a little kid, my brother A.K.A. Michigan hero.
was a hot day in the summer. I was waiting for my tube to get blown up with air. My mom and stepdad's friends were there. My mom's friends had an air pump to blow all of our tubes up with air. They plugged the air pump into their car cigarette lighter. Then we all got our tubes out and brought them over to their car. Then they turned on the air pump grabbed one of the tubes and started filling it up with air. After one to two minutes the tube was all the way filled up with air. Then they
I’m Exotic. My last weekend was interesting. On Monday our class had the presentation about the Great Lakes. We talked about the largest freshwater system of Earth. Canada has five Great Lakes. I learned how to save water and why it is so important for our lives.
Thinking back to the day my relationship ended, I recalled a weighted feeling of fear that swept over me, and I was drowning. The only way to get through this train wreck of a situation was think of somewhere peaceful, although closing my eyes only brought me to the day on the small fishing boat, and catching that monster of a fish. As a rush of calmness raced through my veins I suddenly felt set free. Washed of the boy who felt like he released me, just to throw me back in the lake of life. How you view a situation changes you, not the situation
