Try to imagine yourself there in the midst of what's happening in the picture.  Write a substantial paragraph (around 250 words) incorporating description based on each of the five senses.  Try to use enough specific detail to SHOW your audience where you are rather than telling them where you are.  Refer to page 120 in Back to the Lake to make sure that you are using "concrete details" and not using "filler words" in your description. Your paragraph can be typed or hand-written.  Be ready to share at least one or two details from your description with the class on Friday.
