    I had a dream about being in the most beautiful place I had ever been to, there was a big lake that was turquoise and surrounded by mountains and in the middle of the lake was pointy rock. We were staying in this beautiful house were my family were also staying. Me and one of my best friends were jumping off the rock into the lake and were swimming. When we got to the centre we turned back because it was dark.
