A Trip to Green Island
Last weekend, Ethan and his family stayed on Green Island for two days. On the first day, they went snorkeling and saw many pretty fish swimming in the sea. Ethan found lots of sea animals along the way. He saw two sea turtles and even one sea snake hiding in the rocks. Being in the water made him very happy. On the second day, Ethan and his family went to Zhaori Hot Spring. It's a world-famous saltwater hot spring. They soaked in the hot spring and watched the sun rise at the same time. They enjoyed themselves very much.
