A good friend or even your best friend will always be there for you, caring, kind and trustworthy. They will never lie to you or even back stab give you thing that you haven't got. Invite you to there house and they will always have your back like if you're in trouble they will help you,

At some point  your best friend will betray you  they will  lie maybe they will even  tell your deepest secrets to your worst enemy. Maybe they will start being critical about everything you do. Plus never rely on only one person they can also let you down sometimes. Sure you'll  probably make up but will it ever be the same.

Not likely of course some friendship will last forever if you're in one of those precious friendship. Hold on to your friendship forever and ever.She or he is definitely one worth keeping. Never in life trust or depend on only 1 friend

Rip Current Explanation

Have you ever been to a beach that has a rip current? If you're not sure what  a rip current is pay attention to this as it may save you or your family’s life.

If you discover discoloured water ( never go towards it if you're scared of going out to the deep blue ocean, when discovered the discoloured water you will see that the waves are not crashing in the area where the rip is formed. The ocean will be rushing out towards the ocean.

A rip current is a movement of water or surface current moving directly away  from the shore. It forms because waves pushes water towards the land and it will find a way back out in the sea. Rip currents can be dangerous to people who are swimming in the water but surfers likes to use the rips so they don't have to paddle over the wave.

A rip current can be identified by noticing water is different coloured or when water is calmed amongst the waves . If you're caught in a rip don't panic try to stand if not lay flat like an starfish  and put your hand up don't wave it. go with it let the rip take you out, it only goes as far as the last wave, swim away from the rip and catch the wave back into shore.
