Axis IV: in this axis, my educational and occupational problems kicked in. I started to care less about my homework, being on time to school. Most of the time I would just go straight to the ocean until it’s about 10:00 pm. I liked to be alone with my thoughts. I enjoyed the beach waves and it was relaxing.
This year the weather and sea state was good, allowing more swimmers to make it to the finish line at Hemingway’s Restaurant on the eastern shore. We were needed by two swimmers this year. They all seem to come aboard with disappointment and resignation and we bring water and a towel and whatever else we have to offer them. Finding a place to sit, they settle in to wait for the end of the race, when our boat won’t be needed on the water anymore and we can take them to the marina where their supporters wait to console and offer solace to them.
High Tides and the Hostetter 's, Plus One If you ask anyone, they will tell you that my family is obsessed with the beach. This is not true, we just really like to get our quarterly intake of Vitamin Sea. We normally go to the beach for Fall Break, Spring Break, and Summer Break. There are many different places we like to go, and have many wonderful stories from all of them.
Memoir #1 It was late afternoon, around four or five o’clock, when my sister, Ashley, my cousin, Abby, and I began packing up to head back to our beach house from the beach. The air was still warm and the sun was still luminous in the sky. Every year my family has rented the same exact beach house in Bethany Beach, Delaware. It is a fairly large house directly across the street from the beach; the most treacherous part of the walk being the mountainous dunes.
Along the coast, the waves smashed against the sandy beaches as I drove down the road. I soon would arrive at my hidden destination, and the shocking taste of salty air danced on my tastebuds. I turned the corner in my car, and I could see that the dirt parking lot was was nearly empty. Once I parked, I began to hike to the top of the hill which seemed to be miles high. After a long, sweaty hike, I reached the top, and was mesmerized by the astonishing view!
Christian is extremely stressful and grueling. We are working at the school and at home. I never really notice, but I and my fellow classmates are always extremely tired. Short breaks that last one or two weeks do not fix the tiredness and stress that builds up throughout the school year. The long two-month summer break is the break we need for a stress-free, relaxing, and above all free vacation.
Here's an important thing to know about hammocks: they are not all created equal. The classic image of a relaxing summer day spent with cool lemonade in hand, gently swaying all your cares away on your hammock, quickly goes away if you aren't in the right one. I know everyone thinks that a classic rope hammock is the way to go, but I have discovered that there's a better way. In 1999 I spent my summer traveling on the Oregon coast for six weeks.
There is something special about tossing a line in the water, kicking your feet back, blasting the radio to your favorite tunes, and leaving all of your worries behind. It is an indescribable feeling. Come summer time, that is exactly what I look forward to the most: living easy, living simply, living in the moment with a fishing pole in my hand. Most of my summers were spent in Ocean City, Maryland, arguably one of the filthiest and grungiest beaches I have ever set foot on. However, this place held a special place in my heart as it was where my father first taught me how to fish.
My friends and I drove down to the beach a day later than my parents, so when we arrived there my parents were already there. We went to the beaches in Stone Harbor and Avalon, to go surfing. I had never been surfing and neither had one of my friends, however my other friend was a pretty good surfer, he had surfed for most of his life and was willing to teach us in the art of surfing. When we reached the beach it was after five in the evening and the lifeguards had left and we were ready to start surfing. We rushed into the water right when we stepped on the beach, the water was only a little bit colder than the water in my pool that and swam out to the small rough waves.
I ran to the shoreline and felt the water lap against my legs. I took off my shoes and waded into the water. My family joined soon after and we just floated leisurely around for hours. The waves finally came to a halt, and I discovered this was low tide. It was the perfect moment to seek out the good shells and find sand dollars.
Georgia’s spontaneous climate changes Georgia, as we all know, isn’t the most ideal place to live if you enjoy a constant climate year round. In Georgia you have the luxury of enjoying all four seasons in one twenty- four hour time span. Only a few other places such as Alabama, Tennessee, and other southern states experience these irregular weather patterns. Summer time in Georgia is perhaps the most persistent when it comes to the climate; it’s always hot like an oven when it’s being used to cook cookies for your child’s birthday party. Being outside for just a few minutes will leave you feeling like an obese individual after running a marathon.
As part of the unesco (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) I took great care in preserving the Great Barrier reef for many more generations to enjoy, with being the year 2050 none of us knew how much longer the reef could last. This would be the first time in many years that I go see the reef. After suiting up in a wetsuit i was euphoric to get into the water and explore. The boat set out and after a short time I was in the water.
The variations of squats and lunges, combined with the various types of sets had me struggling to walk after the workout was over, and for 2 days to follow. If you are concerned that the workouts will not be effective, I don 't think that you have anything to worry about. I enjoyed them all. The only big problem that I had with them is that the warm-up and cool-down are too short. This is common with all Beachbody programs.
If I could pick where I would want to go back for a day I would have no problem deciding. It would be the Dominican Republic because I miss the crystal clear water and sun beating down on on me. What I miss the most is snorkeling in the water and seeing all the different kinds of fish. There were several ugly and pretty fish. My dad, mom and sister went there for our Christmas in 2014.
