It was still nice and warm outside. It took 3 hours to drive from Va to Nc but it was worth it. We were there for a week. The beach was only about a 5 minute walk from our front door. I went to the beach and went swimming almost every day.
I did not see any dolphins in the morning but my grandparents told me that we were going to go see some dolphins on a dolphin cruise. Because Gulf Shores is on the Gulf of Mexico dolphins like to ride the waves when boats go out. We drove to the dolphin cruise place and we got on the boat. There were lots of old people on the boat. My sisters and I were the only kids on the boat.
Vacations had always been an ordinary occurrence for me. Most of the locations were only an hour or so away, and the visits lasted only a couple of days at most. My parents accompanied me on each of these trips, so I always felt a constant, secure presence near me. But when my mother informed my brothers and I that we were scheduled to see my grandmother, who lived over 1500 miles away in New Jersey, a flood of anxiety and excitement rushed over me. Being only twelve, I felt like I was off to a far away galaxy of some sort, not another state, as the idea of being there for an entire week lingered in my mind.
We had been on a flight for about three hours, and I was very scared, because that was my first time on a plane. We were sightseeing in Arizona for a day or two, taking pictures and shopping around the local stores, looking for cool stuff to bring home for our families. The day after, we were supposed to take a van for a 12 hour trip to Puerto Penasco, to the Penasco del Sol Hotel. That
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. The official website for the event reports “The Great Chesapeake Bay Swim (GCBS) is one of America 's premier open water swim challenges” and we’re honored
He felt uncomfortable and trapped with the crowds of people, the constant noise and fast pace of everyone around him. “Home throbbed in him like a headache” (page 49).The only time Abel felt free was when he slept and he dreamt of Blueback. Once, he dreamt that Blueback lead him deep into the water where he saw many drowned people including Mad Macka and his dead father.This dream disturbed Abel. Dora wrote letters and sent coral and shells to Abel. He often held a shell to his ear and closed his eyes and let himself believe that he could hear the sea to that he could escape from where he was and return to the sea.
The day was winding down as Stan and his newlywed wife, Allison drove towards the forest of Grapeland Falls, an hour from their home. The young couple, ages 20 and 19 respectively, married young and couldn’t yet afford a honeymoon, or at least the honeymoon they wanted. They decided to hold off on the “dream” honeymoon for a year or two and for now take weekend trips to areas near their home in Venure County California that they has always neglected. Grapeland Falls was one of those areas, a place where tourists travels hundreds if not thousands of miles to come and see in person, but locals ignore like their great aunt who lives just a few miles away. Allison was particularly excited.

One warm august night my sister Ellie and I watched the film Into the Wild. The story of Chris McCandless reconnecting with nature and going out on his own was profound to me. My mom was an avid hiker when she was younger and even climbed Mount Olympus, but as she’s gotten older and kids and life have taken over hiking hasn’t been much of priority. After the movie ended I told her I wanted to go on a short backpacking trip by myself before I had to go back to school and immediately my ten year old sister wanted to come with me. I agreed and we spent the next twenty four hours planning, packing and figuring out exactly where we were going.
I cannot recall any other time I experienced so much joy and satisfaction. It was on the warmth of a spring day in March, 2015. After finishing the spring semester at high school, the school gives students a one-week holiday to relax or to go somewhere. A beach trip in the spring is always a good idea for us who live near the sea, but this time I was on the bus with my classmates heading to the airport. The school had organized a Habitat Trip to the Philippines, where my classmates and I decided to go to build houses.
