Homework Help: another para

Posted by rose -Ms. Sue on Sunday, June 15, 2008 at 10:15pm.

Before dawn, on our eight day at sea, the head smuggler of the rickety boat
announced to my father, that we were just off the coast of the Florida Keys and that we
should jump. I clearly remember him saying: Go! Swim! the man said and sped off.
After a half-hour of swimming, with my dad dragging both my mom and I who did not
know how to swim, we reached a remote part of the Keys.
A local woman found us shivering and gave us food and dry clothes. We were

lucky that we did not get caught by the Coast Guard. As far as the five other people that

had embarqued on this journey with us, we never saw them again. "Cubans love the

beach and the sea,” “But after our ordeal, to this day we have had enough of the sea for a

long long time."
