I visited my friend living in Sydney during Chuseok holiday. When I finally got there after 10 hours tiring flight, I was so happy with all those exotic sights. But the joy didn't last long. It started to rain. It was the day we planned to go sandboarding at Stockton Beach. I thought it was impossible to sandboard on such a rainy day. I couldn't even cancel or change to another day because we'd already paid for it.
When we joined the Port Stephens Sandboarding tour, there were many people worrying about the weather like us. But the guide told us to believe that it was going to be sunny soon. I couldn't believe it and was so disappointed. It was raining cats and dogs.
When we finally got to the beach, however, it all stopped raining like a magic. I couldn't believe what I was seeing. The sun was shining through the cloud. I was momentarily dazzled by the strong sunlight. Soon beautiful scenery spread out before my eyes. Silky sand and tumultuous ocean was visible. It was so beautiful. It was like half desert and half sea.
To get in the middle of the sand, we got in a military hummer. We enjoyed driving on the sand at full speed. A car was bouncing and we enjoyed it. We got to the middle of the desert. There was a huge sand hill. It was almost like a vertical cliff of sand. The guide said that it is Australia's largest sand mass, years of winds managing to dump it all in the same place.
At the top of the sand hill, I sat down on the board. I started racing from the top. It was so exciting. I left my fingers trailing behind myself in the sand. It was so fast. The sandboarding was such an exciting experience. I would never forget it.
