Jerry and his mother are on a beach resort in South Africa. Jerry's mother was looking rather impatient because she wants him to be with her everywhere because she wants him to be safe. She asked if Jerry wanted to go someplace else but as he ran to catch up with his mother he looked back at the wild bay and he was thinking of what she said.
There were some much older boys stripping off their clothes and Jerry swam towards them but he kept his distance. In their view Jerry was a foreigner who had strayed from his own beach and they proceeded to forget about Jerry but he was happy being with them. They took turns diving into the water and it was Jerry's turn to dive into the water he wanted to see where they were going when they dived into the water but he couldn't see anything.
Jerry went back to the villa to wait for his mother and Jerry said that he wanted some swimming goggles. She said "well of course darling" and as soon as she bought them Jerry took them and ran back to the wild bay and adjusted them and went back underwater. Again and again he rose up to take big chestful's of air and he had finally found the hole.
Jerry gave himself a panicky, convulsive kick forward, he counted to a hundred and his lungs started to hurt. He was counting wildly to a hundred fifteen, he heard himself say it over and over again. He feebly clutched at rocks in the dark, pulling himself forward Jerry felt like he was dying...
Jerry was gasping like a fish, he felt like he would sink and drown after surfacing. He couldn't swim the few feet back to the rock and he layed face down, still gasping for air. He tore his goggles off and a gout of blood went into the sea when his nose was bleeding it had filled the goggles.
In the end Jerry did achieve his goal and swam through the hole and held his breath underwater for 2-3 minutes! He also always practiced to become better at something and because of that "Practice makes perfect" after all. Jerry's hard work paid off "Fill your life with experiences, not things. Have stories to tell, not stuff to show.
