My Time

By Maddie
I managed an evening out last week to my favourite place Smile

The tide was low and the ledges that are normally covered by sea were so inviting, i sat pondering for a while,do i jump or dont i, i knew jumping down wasnt too bad but would i get back up again!!

I decided it would really make me feel good and i was right, it felt great but rather strange to think if i stepped off the ledge i would be in the middle of the ocean.

The good news was i managed to climb back up the cliff aswellSmile

thanks for your time.

There is some wonderful light on those rocks, and I like the way your eyes are taken round the rocks as they arch round to the right
