    Cyprus Lake, ON - Daniel L

My Watermark is Cyprus Lake Grotto, Ontario.

When I young at the Grotto, I stared at the giant cave and the people and the rocks in front of me. I was stunned. I was really shocked to see how many people there were in front of the Grotto. I couldn't believe my eyes. I could see water everywhere, and not just in the cave. I could see water as far as I can see.

When I was young at the Grotto, I could see how clean and clear the water was. I saw a hole in the middle and it looked really cool. My friend explained that it leads to outside the Grotto. I just couldn't wait until I could get into the water and start playing. I saw people jumping off rocks and instantly I wanted to try it. I pulled my family into the cave and my brother, my friends and I went in and the water was freezing!

When I was young at the Grotto, I could see the ledges and people jumping. There was one ledge where people lined up to jump. My brother and I got in line. When it was my turn I had mixed feelings of being scared while at the same time excited. I was about to leave because I was too scared to jump but then I conquered my fears and did it.

When I was getting ready to jump off a rock, I was extremely enthusiastic to jump. My friend was right next to me and she was extremely scared to jump off. I told her to just do it. I was also scared but then I still jumped and she jumped after me. It was a really fun time.
