На третий день нам стало ясно, что с челнами надо расстаться: река начинала быстро мелеть, они то и дело скребли днищем о песок.

He came up the steps in the shallow end cupping his shriveled balls with one hand and trying to pull his toupee back on with the other.
Он по ступенькам поднялся из воды, одной рукой прикрывая свои сморщенные яйца, а другой безуспешно стараясь натянуть на лысину соскочивший парик.

The first wave of Rodimtsev's guardsmen did not fix bayonets. They leaped over the sides of boats into the shallow water of the river's edge and charged straight up the steep, sandy bank.
Гвардейцы Родимцева, не дожидаясь, пока лодки коснутся берега, прыгали на мелководье и бежали к песчаному откосу.

Clyde was by no means so sure, but he admired the easy, shallow way in which Stuart laughed and showed his even white teeth—a quick, genial, indifferent laugh.
Клайд совсем не был в этом уверен, но ему очень нравился легкий, беззаботный смех Стюарта - он смеялся громко, весело и равнодушно, показывая ровные белые зубы.

But when, at the end of a fortnight, the baby died of thrush, he himself laid the child in its little coffin, looked at it in profound grief, and when they were filling up the shallow little grave he fell on his knees and bowed down to the earth.
Но когда мальчик через две недели помер от молочницы, то сам его уложил в гробик, с глубокою тоской смотрел на него, и когда засыпали неглубокую маленькую его могилку, стал на колени и поклонился могилке в землю.

“He's not mad, but one of those shallow-minded people,” he mumbled listlessly.
- Он не сумасшедший, но это люди с коротенькими мыслями, - вяло и как бы нехотя промямлил он.

His chosen successor lasted only one year on the job and the next in line faced a management team so shallow that he had to temporarily shoulder four jobs while scrambling to identify a new number two executive.
Он выбрал преемника, который продержался всего один год, а следующий получил в наследство такую слабую команду, что некоторое время ему пришлось занимать четыре поста одновременно прежде, чем ему удалось подобрать заместителей.

At dawn he pulled off it, bumped across a shallow roadside ditch, drove through an old field overgrown with weeds and brush, and parked in a grove of oaks at one end of the field.
На рассвете он съехал с нее, проехал по старому, заросшему сорняками и кустарником полю и остановился у дубовой рощи.

The cave roof, what they could see of it in the last dim twilight, was a solid cap of glassy stone, the floor of the fine sandstone that formed, so Rianna said, in the bottom of shallow lakes.
Потолок пещеры, насколько можно было разобрать в сумраке, представлял собой купол из стекловидного камня, а пол был усыпан песком, который образуется, как пояснила Райэнна, на дне пересыхающих озер.

The body of a man dressed in a blue jacket and trousers was lying among the weeds in the shallow ditch at the foot of the wall.
У подножия стены в неглубокой канаве среди травы они увидели тело мужчины, одетого в синюю куртку и такого же цвета штаны.
