A Trip to the Cove with Ollie

drawing on Ollie's tail

by J.N. Culver
    Ollie the Otter loves to go to the cove. 
    First we did is pack the floaties. Then we packed the food. Next, Ollie packs the other stuff. Now we are ready; we are going in the car. We arrived, the first thing Ollie did was jump in the pool. It was kinda funny. But he got hurt a little. So I put a bandaid on to make him feel better. Now I jumped in the water, it was fun. I went to get a floaty for Ollie because he couldn’t swim. I was going to teach him but Ollie was stubborn. So I just left him alone. Well I was just eating fruit. Ollie wanted some, so I gave him some. I was getting tired so was Ollie. So we got in the car. Then we went home. Ollie slept in the car, he was tired. 
    And that was my adventure with Ollie.
