Tubing Thrills Excerpt:

Sunshine bathed the lake docks with its warm, golden glow. There, amidst the gently swishing waves, Manny the motorboat swayed as he waited patiently at the dock. Manny was a friendly little boat, and today, he was ready for an exciting adventure. He had a bright yellow raft attached to him, and that could only mean one thing – it was tubing time! Manny loved hearing the laughter and seeing the ear-to-ear smiles on his passengers’ faces as he pulled the raft through the water. Manny bobbed up and down in the water as his passengers climbed aboard and put on their life vests.

Then, Manny’s engine hummed to life as one of the people turned the key. The rest of the passengers settled into the boat, one person held onto the tube, and everyone was all set for an adventure on the water. With a gentle rumble, Manny let out a happy sigh. It was time to go! With a quick check to make sure everything was secure, one of the passengers untied Manny from the dock, and they were off.
