Useless Loop

Useless Loop was usual enough ; It had a park, a shop, a forest and a beach and even a little old pool. My brother my friends and I did what people in the town do - on Thursday we galloped over to the shop and bought hokey pokey ice- cream  and were creeping all around hunting for lizards under rocks and then naming them names like bob, cherry and bob junior  we also had heaps of sleepover, also we went bush bashes through the forest seeing the occasional snake slithering below are feet or we just play ball tag in the park and when we try play with Nerf guns and  I would shot my brother he would tackle me. On Saturdays we always went down to the oval and play AFL and everyone brought  their dogs to play to. Doing nothing important Lani A Adamson

The Lee River

We stumbled down the long grassy path reaching the hot sand, are cousins come tumbling down after us my toes touch the cold icy water and I could barely stay in for a second. I dive I my body goes numb, my head pops up and everyone's in including Molly my border collie. We start swimming to the slippery mossy rocks , were the swing rope is.
I climb until I reach the swing rope but before I  swing of the rope I jump of the rock splash my head pops and I see my dog trying to climb up the rock but she slips into the water I quickly swim to her my numb arms reach out to help her but her claws scratch me and she swims away. I scurry up the...wow!!! There goes my brother on the swing rope, splash he hits the water I was watching him so much that I didn’t realise molly was trying to get up i move out of the way and she slowly finds a way up. One By one people our going of the swing rope and molly yelp each time trying to save them. Soon mum calls out “ time to get out”  we all scurry out …
