Why I Love This Recipe

Have you ever picked cranberries before? I do every year in the summer. It is so much fun! The best year though was 2010 in Maine.

“SPLASH!” my older brother threw me into the freezing cold lake after a hot day of cranberry picking. “Now it’s your turn Danny.” I say.

He does a huge cannon ball it was so big it was like an elephant jumped into the water. We dove underwater taking in the coldness.

“Lets go get some rafts.” Dan said.

I followed him to the latter. After him, I dragged myself onto the latter. Something white and squirmy caught my eye. “EWWWWW DANNY!” He comes rushing over.

“Look. What is that?” I say surprised what my eyes are seeing.

“I don’t know but get a bucket and we will take a look at it.” Danny grabs the worm like thing quick and puts it into the bucket. We take a look together.

“It looks like a white skinny earthworm.” I say. This thing was disgusting. It gave me chills when I would look at it.

“Let’s take it back to our cabin to show Nana and Papa.” Dan says.

We had the worm in the bucket. We got into the boat and took a small trip back to our cabin. When we arrived we showed Nana and Papa.

“I have never seen anything like it.” Nana says. “Get a insect book and look it up.”

As I sit there with the worm like thing, Danny looks it up in the book.

“AH I FOUND IT!” He says proud. “It seems to be something called a Horse Tailed Worm.”

We looked at the picture and knew it looked like the worm. Sense we never seen this before in this lake, Danny and I took a walk in the woods far away with our new friend. When my big brother and I let the worm go we walked back to our camp disgusted.
