I love to swim and I couldn’t wait to jump in. After we dropped our bags off in our condo, we went down to the beach. The sand was felt warm on my toes and the air was as humid as a sauna. The ocean was as blue as the sky and the sand looked as white as snow. We didn’t spend much time on the beach before it got dark and we had to head back to our condo.
There so many to choose from, including, biking down a volcano, participating in a Luau, taking a snorkeling boat ride, and off-roading. Taking a bike ride down a volcano was one of the best experiences I have ever had. Even though I had to get up and leave at one in the morning it was worth it. I got to see the sunrise from 10,000 feet above sea level, and got to ride down the volcano. The sunrise was one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen.
Three of the most memorable moments I had in 5th grade was going to Catalina Island, going to the California Science Museum, and reading “Shoe Dog.” My first memory I am going to share with you is when we went to Catalina Island for a week. Sleeping in the cabins were one of the most fun parts of going to Catalina because we told each other jokes and talked about the day’s activities. Another awesome part about Catalina was what we called “Day Trip,” were we kayaked out to a secluded beach and spent the day there. The best thing we did before leaving Catalina was the “Big Swing.” Our classmates would pull us up into the air and then we would
All I could think about was “מָה-רַבּוּ מַעֲשֶׂיךָ ה.” Whenever I go on family trips I am always amazed by the nature of the world around us. Last week, I went to Florida with my family and stayed at my grandparents’ apartment on the beach. It happened to be that every morning the sun rises right over the ocean. Being able to watch the sun rise over the ocean was an amazing experience. Again, all I could say was “מָה-רַבּוּ מַעֲשֶׂיךָ ה.” Since I am able to realize how everything in our world comes from Hashem, I am much more aware of Hashes presence in my daily life.
Finding My Mermaid Magic It was a hot and sunny Friday afternoon in Aruba. There was a Surf for Breast Cancer event going on at the beach and I was asked to surf in it because i’m one of the top surfers in my division. The competition started at 3:30 so I got there early to clean my board and practice with my bestfriends, Venus and Malani. Venus was a short redhead with green eyes and she loved to take pictures on the beach and post them while Malani was more on the shy side. Malani was average sized with golden skin, curly dark brown hair, and loved animals.
When I was thirteen, approximately a year ago, my family took a vacation to Cancun. The trip was pretty cool. Cancun was warm, tropical, and most of all supplied endless amounts of food in the hotel. Like most vacations, people want to get the most they can do with their time there. For me, my last bit of fun would have been crashing into the waves, I had discovered, on the new beach in front of my hotel.
We quickly ran down to the beach, careful to not get in trouble. The beach was absolutely gorgeous. A happy feeling took over my body immediately. The next day was an amazing day for swimming. When we awoke, we ate breakfast and immediately started running to get ready.
It was exceptionally blue that day with a slight green undertone. The surface looked as though it was covered with millions of diamonds crashing with the waves and kissing the sand. I remember the sand in between my feet, like standing on a coarse cloud that I could just seep into.The water teasing my toes and running back into hiding. Repeating the cycle getting closer and closer each time until I felt the rush of the current under me and the sand being pulled out from between my toes back into the ocean. 11 years later and the fond memories of the magical and wonderful ocean would be pulled out from under me like the current itself.
The weird thing is that it was the nicest island you could ever see. It had palm trees, tiki sculptures, baby blue water, coconut trees, & sand as soft as a baby’s bottom! We couldn’t believe it , it was weird ! about 30 minutes ago we were running a 3.0 mile race & now we are standing on a beach , it was like a vacation. Everyone was so shocked, we were sad we weren’t with our families & we weren’t running , but this is a one in a
My bruised ego and sprained ankle lay with me in a sweaty mess on the beach volleyball court. Luckily, we were at the most incredible athletic facility that I had ever seen. After a long summer of countless tournaments and red, white, and blue banded medals, I made the U17 USA National Beach Volleyball Team roster. Accordingly, I received the opportunity to train at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista. At the time, I didn 't understand the incredible
