The Fight for Survival (A)

It was a warm and tranquil evening the night my parents and I ventured across Nemeiben Lake, in Northern Saskatchewan. This vast lake, that expanded 26miles across, had a reputation as being the best fishing and tourist resort in the province.

The sun was setting behind the dark rolling clouds massing on the horizon. We had just unloaded our belongs needed for a three-day stay at a secluded cabin across the lake. With the boat undocked and the gear and luggage stored beneath the security of the seats, we set off into the settin sun at 8:30.

I had never been on a fishing boat before and was captivated by the speed and grace in which it jutted through the waves. The lake ws deserted as the sky began to darken, looking more threatening by the minute.

And then suddenly the laughter and chatter stopped. The boat hit something with such force we all fell over in our seats. The loud clunk vibrated the boat temporarily, before water started to trickle slowly over the stern. My father went to the back and after many attempts to start the engine, had a look of utter panic on his face. The water was now rushing in at a much faster rate. Tipping the boat at an awkwardangle.

The overloaded boat was now ankle deep in water. We tried frantically to scoop water from its interior. But it was no use. The water was gushing in quickly. The luggage and gear were bobbing on the water’s surface. In a matter of minutes, everything in this luxurious boat would be on the bottom of the lake.



一个暖和宁静的夜晚,我和父母冒险横渡加拿大北萨斯客彻温省的涅梅本湖。这个大湖,绵延26英里, 被誉为省内最好的垂钓旅游点。

滚滚乌云聚集在地平线上,夕阳沉入云后。此时我们刚把短途旅行的所需品从车上卸下来,我们打算在湖对岸一间僻静的小木屋里度过3天。当渔具和行李都安放在座位下 ,船便驶离了岸边,我们在8:30出发向夕阳驶去。

我以前从未乘坐渔船出航,所以立刻就被它乘风破浪的速度和优雅所吸引。湖面一片荒凉,天色越来越暗,每分钟的流逝就平添一分恐怖。

然后,笑声和聊天声噶然而止。小船大力地撞到了什么,我们全都跌倒在座位上。声像巨大的撞击立刻震动了小船,之后水开始慢慢地漫过船尾。爸爸走到船尾,多次试图启动马达都没有成功,他的脸上布满了恐慌。水开始快速地涌入,使得船身严重地倾斜起来。

超负荷的船已深陷水中。我们手足失措地试图把水从船里舀出去。用不了几分钟,这艘豪华渔船上的一切都将沉入湖底。
