Fighting the traffic was probably the hardest part of the vacation. Even though the traffic wasn’t good, everyday we went to a beach. We either went to South Padre, Bocka Chicka, or Port Isabel. Each one of them were beautiful, and extraordinarily relaxing. My favorite beach to go to though, was Port Isabel.
I’m not very tired but I want to be well rested by the time we get to Florida. To help put myself in a better mood I think about all the memories I’m about to make this week. Florida is my favorite place ever so it wasn’t that hard to think of something. I remember waking up as we passed the big green sign reading, “Welcome to Florida.” My heart fluttered with happiness as we crossed the bridge over the vast blue water. I woke my brothers and told them to get up and look out the window.
Throughout my childhood growing up in Miami Fl, was an amazing experience, it’s unique variety of cultures spread through one city is absolutely mind blowing. Although there was one thing one my mind at all times. One thing I never experienced was living out west and getting away from the Miami life. Its kind of hard to believe someone would prefer living out west, in the middle of nowhere than along a beach shoreline. As a matter of fact, living out west had become one of my priorities when I was making my college decision.
The Salt Epidemic I loved to travel it was always a was a way for me to get away from the stressful life of school and sports competing to take up the most time meaning I get no time to pretty much rest. But this trip was way different than any other trip I went on the usual trip was relaxing and fun just spending time with either my mom or my dad. But this trip had a different vibe to it we were going to florida with more people than just me mom and my brother Aidan it was seven people coming counting us so I figured I would have no space but I was not aware that I would be picked on by two kids younger than me but they knew I would not strike them or hurt them in anyway so there was going to be some problems if I didn’t straighten them up and teach them how to act like adults. The night that I finally snapped was on saturday the final
As I was walking towards the beach, the sun was beaming straight into my soul. I had the day off from work and decided to take a trip to the beach with my friend. It was a hot summer day, the forecast suggested a very hot and humid day. As I packed my essentials, I made my way to my friend’s house. We then took a while before boarding on the transportation.
Reading,"The Sun Goes Down on Summer" by Steve Lawhead brought back feelings I have about summer ending, school starting again, and being the real me! Summer ending means no more late night adventures. It means all the relaxing is traded in for hardcore studying. It means getting ready to see which friends will leave you and change for new friends. In the poem, Steve feels anxiety about starting school again, I relate to this in a big way!
There we were, we had gone to Lake Bemidji State Park to talk and get to know one another better, it wasn’t the first time we had gotten together to talk. A few days before we had had a mini fight where I was nervous because I honestly hadn’t trusted you. But I had decided to get to know you better. We had found a bench on less traveled path, not because we were hiding, just didn’t want to be disturbed. The summer heat was still present even though it was nearing September, though sitting in the shade it could get slightly chilly, along with a constant swarm of mosquitoes to keep us company.
It was a bright day during the month of June in the Sunshine State, Florida. My girlfriend Alex, her best friend Olivia, and her cousin David wanted to go to a waterpark. I grew up in San Francisco, a place much colder than Florida. As such, I never got the chance to go to one, so when the opportunity presented itself I jumped on in. I was on a trip to visit my girlfriend that I was in a long distance relationship with at the time.
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
