When it comes to picnics everyone from the youngest to the oldest loves it. And we have so many memories regarding picnics from our school days. Well I am going to share my experience when I went on a one day picnic.
I was a grade 10th student and had been to my hometown for vacations. My cousins were supposed to go for a picnic with their church friends and elders and asked us if I and my younger sister would love to join them and I instantly said yes. Though I never asked my mother's permission but I was all excited to go somehow knew my mother would never mind. So after a while I decided to talk to her. And she asked us where we were planning to go. I told her it was a water resort and it was a one day picnic. But to my surprise my mother wasn't allowing us to go for this particular picnic. She told us that there was water and such resorts are usually not safe and besides she was not with us. But some how I convinced her and said I would look after my sister and my cousins as I am the eldest among them and I and my sister along with our cousins went on this picnic. We left early in the morning as we had a one hour journey before we reached the resort. Everyone in the bus was singing songs, cracking jokes and chit chatting. Finally we arrived. Wow! It was a beautiful resort and as it was summer vacations it was crowded with people. So I told my cousins and sister that we would stay together and enjoy among us as there was a huge crowd and we could easily get lost. Also in case we separate from each other we would meet at the place where we had kept our luggage. So we first had our breakfast and then we first decided explore the place and shop around. We went at different outlets and had lots and lots of ice-creams as it was summer and ice-creams for me are the best during summers. After exploring everything at around 1pm we reached the place where our team had decided to meet for lunch. By the time we had our lunch the resort had become a little quiet as most of the people had left. So it was the best time for us to enjoy in the water pools. So we changed and went into the pool. We Enjoyed splashing water on each other specially the rain dance. Then we went towards the next pool which had the biggest slide. Now we never realized that it was actually 4 pm. After playing and enjoying now we decided to relax by the edge of the pool when one of our church friend called out to us and asked us to join them. So we got down in the water. But as none of us knew swimming and the water was deep we decided to hold hands and walk slowly towards where our friends were right in the middle of the pool. As we walked I saw that my cousins and sisters were with me. So I asked them not to leave hands no matter what. After a few minutes I just checked around and saw that my little sister was not with us. I asked my cousin where was my sister and she said "OH! my she was just with us, where did she disappear". I got worried seeing my little sister was not around and she had disappeared suddenly. So I checked around and saw that she was playing with someone right in the middle of the pool. I called out to her and asked her to return but she never heard me. So i asked my cousins to stay right where they were while i will go and get her. But as I turned around there again she wasn't there. I got really annoyed as to where she went and the next moment I saw that she was floating in the water and struggling to get back on her feet. I panicked as I couldn't reach out to her as she was in deep water and i couldn't swim, I was scared. So I shouted out to the people near to her to save her but seemed like everyone had become deaf. Alright I said people couldn't hear but they had eyes to see that someone was drowning isn't it? but no seemed like my sister had become invisible for the people around her. I just prayed Jesus help us. Again I shouted twice for help and finally the manager who was watching the people play in the pool saw that my sister was drowning and he got into the water and saved her.
After that I just forgot that I never knew how to swim and went towards my sister in this deep water and thanked God for helping us. After I went home I asked forgiveness to my mom and told her never again will I go against her will when she says no.
