Encapsulated by the Trees

Feeling small from a huge world of mini islands overcrowded with trees.

The islands around me felt like they were watching over me, and trapping me in this huge park. Going fast, in a speedboat, feeling the cold water as it splashed us all. The rain combining with the water made it freezing cold, yet a lot more thrilling as it woke me up! Looking around you, all you could see was green trees, spiky rocks and shiny water. But if you zoomed in closely, there were always sweet sounding birds. Birds were an important part of the park. The birds sat down calmly, or they would fly around the park, in different directions. Like we were their guests in their home (the island of course) while they were fluttering around everywhere.

From swifts, to ospreys surrounding us and making the adventure a lot more thrilling. The tons of swifts that circled high above us, as we followed their movements with our eyes. As if we were in Cinderella and they were flying around us. Out of nowhere, an osprey appeared and all eyes were struggling to find it, as everything blended in together. Apparently they hadn’t seen an osprey in 4 years so finding it was lucky. We went back to the boathouse and I looked at the high top trees again. It felt like home to some people, not just trees towering over us, which was a quite different point of view all though a refreshing one from our lowly ones.
