The Sad Scuba Dive

3,2,1, SPLASH! All of a sudden, I had dived into the beautiful blue sea and saw amazing things like; Clown Fish as bright as the sun; fish that looked like plants and clear fish. It was amazing! As I glided along the top of the sea surface I looked down below and saw shadows lurking and I immediately thought “They’re probably sharks…” , so I decided to stay as far away from them as possible. I got a little bit scared so I thought that I would sit on the boat until they were gone.

Twenty minutes later, the sharks had disappeared so I got back into the sea ready to explore the bottom a lot more. There was coral and coral reefs, also I could see lots of slimy seaweed too. Suddenly, out of the corner of my eye, I could see a plastic can holder, so I went up to it and put it in my little bag just to make sure I could help the ocean a tiny bit. “Whats that over there?” I thought. There was a mysterious trail of lots plastic and I picked it all up and I followed it further and realised that it went on forever. I decided to turn around because it was making me sad.  I saw a turtle, stuck in a plastic bag. Eventually, I got it out and I named it Lucky, I think that people should really respect the ocean. Just think, if fish are eating plastic then we eat them then we are eating plastic. What should we do to help?

  1. Hi Charlie! Thank you for posting on our blog. I liked how your story twisted at the end – with you rescuing the turtle. What you wrote after that was really powerful and clever to end with a question which leaves the reader thinking. Remember to check for apostrophes (what’s) next time. Well done. 🙂 🙂
