Outdoor writing contest runner up: No, We Did Not Pee on It

UPDATED: Mon., Dec. 26, 2022

With the loud wind in my ears and the constant sound of the tube bouncing off the water, it was nearly impossible to transcribe what my mom was shouting at me. “Look to your right,” she hollered. Bearing the pain of the saltwater splashing into my eyes, I glanced over. I saw a fin. Instinctively, I thought it was a shark and instantly felt the panic flood my thoughts. For all the years I’ve been tubing in Tybee Island, Georgia, I had never seen that before. Moments following, I saw another fin, followed by another. That’s when I realized they were not sharks, but rather dolphins. I had never seen a dolphin, let alone, three within thirty feet of me. Each year, Tybee Island has new events in store for me; some positive and some negative.
