The Delaware River
Is there a place that you go to just to think or feel relaxed? Everyone has a place like that and the Delaware River is that place for me. When I first moved to Pennsylvania seven years ago, I loved that I was going to live near a river. I had never lived so close to any body of water before. After about one year of living in Easton, Pennsylvania, my mom and I had decided to have a picnic every year alongside the Delaware River. We would sit on the grass with the sun warming our faces and just watch the water in the river flow until it fell down the waterfall. The Delaware River provides a place for me to think and it’s also a great place to go if you want to relax.
One of the things I love about the Delaware River is all the sounds I hear when I go there. The water booms when it falls down the water fall. As the water tumbles down the waterfall, it pounds the rocks below. After it rains, I like to go to the Delaware to watch the fast current and hear the water roaring. Sometimes, when the weather is calm and the current is slow, you can hear the fishes jumping out of the water and plopping back in. The sound of the water bouncing back off the rocks near the sides of the river is very soothing to me. I also love to hear the birds during spring and summer; it’s almost like the birds sing songs to me.
Another wonderful thing about the Delaware is that there are a variety of things to do when you go there. One of the many activities available is tubing. To tube, you get on a round raft type of object and you sit in the middle of it and ride down the river. You can see all the beautiful things around you, such as the trees, the little islands and the wildlife on the sides of the river. The trees are a brilliant green all summer and in spring they bloom with lovely white and pink colors. In autumn, they turn a bright red, yellow, and orange, lighting up the river. Some islands look eerie in winter because it is hard to see...
