It all started on a summer day, I went to nags head beach with my family. We got a big beach house with my whole family and a few friends. This was about 4 years but it feels like it was just the other day. We went at the very end of the summer. 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. When I didn’t want to walk to the beach I could go to the back yard and jump in the pool we had. And at night when the pool started to get cold I could go on the upstairs balcony and get in the hot tub. The pool had lights in it but the hot tub had lights and jets. While I was down in North Carolina we went to a place with big sand dunes. People were here flying kites and kicking soccer balls. But my family just walked around on the sand dunes. It was miles of sand with almost …show more content…
But this time we brought our fishing poles. Me my cousin and my dad went to the big doc away from all of the people swimming and started fishing. My cousin caught a few fish and so did my dad but I didn’t catch anything yet. Right when we were about to leave I felt a tug on my pole. I pulled back and had the fish hooked. I knew it had to be a big fish because it was hard to reel in. After about 25 or 30 minutes the fish was almost at the doc. Then I started to pull it out of the water and that’s when I realized it was a shark. The shark was about two feet long and weighed 45 pounds. I got my dad to take a picture of me holding the shark then after that I threw it back in the water. After I threw the shark back we decided to go back to the beach house. When we got back to the beach house we didn’t do much we just chilled out for the last night because we had to leave the next day around

When we got to the beach we started taking many pictures. We had our twinning dress, shirt, and swimsuits on so we were taking many pictures. The beach wasn't what we were expecting. On the bridge it was blue water, but when you got to the only public beach it was kind of green and dirty looking. Macy and I still had fun though.
Then we threw it back. We sent my mom a picture. Then we kept on fishing. When we were done fishing I drove back to the boat dock and my dad went and got the truck and I loaded the boat. We went to the fish cleaning station and started to clean the fish that we had caught.
There is one far distant memory that I can never seem to get out of my head. When I was much younger, maybe 8 or 9, my family and I went to the Hawaiian islands on vacation. As everybody else that visits the islands, we of course went to the beach. I had no idea at the time that I would have such an intense experience that would change me for the rest of my life. It all starts on a perfect Hawaiian day, everything was exactly what you would expect out of a hot vacation spot.
I gave it a shot, and I could see my lizard going past the bed as the bass kept a steady eye on it. It gave me those three little nibbles they always give when biting down on a lure. When I felt those nibbles, I quickly jerked my rod and set the hook on my first bass of the day. It's a sensation like no other to reel a fish in and have that feeling of excitement, but at the time I was still a little scared of slimy fish. However, there was no dad or friend to help me get the fish off the line, just me and my bare hands as I grabbed the bass’ lip and took out the hook for the first time on my own.
About 3 or 4 years ago my two cousins and I went deep sea fishing with are dads. We went so far off the coast of Florida you couldn’t see land at all. When we got back ( I was the only one who caught a shark he was a small Hammerhead) from the fishing trip we went back to our condo. Since then I have never caught a shark.
We went to many beaches. I thought the Pacific Ocean was going to be so special but it was just like the Atlantic Ocean back at home. The water was cold and there were stingrays everywhere! It was still worth going to the beaches and having a good time with my family and making many memories that will last a lifetime.
On a nice, warm, summers day, my family and I had gone on vacation to Orlando, Florida. We stayed there for five days. One of the days we went to Sea World. It took us a little while to arrive in the park, but as soon as we were in I had to take off my shirt because it was extremely arid. Thank God I had my bathing suit on underneath my clothing.
It was cold; the kind of cold that when you took a deep breath, it hurt your lungs, and the wind would come roaring off the lake like thunder, it always seemed as if summer was a thousand years away, and the sunshine that warmed us as we swam in the very same lake in July would have to be drilled open with an Auger, or a smartly placed shotgun gun blast through six or more inches of ice to even try to let the fish know you have a wonderful squishy worm and he should come get it, and you know this because the chickens have provided the best, stinky, warm, wet, and messy mud pile that even in winter never freezes or loses its ammonia like odor, Dad says it’s the best dirt, I say the worms are huge because that’s all I care about, a great big old jiggly wet sticky worm and time fishing with dad. I still fish as much as a responsible, employed, family man can. So I had waited a long time for the little ones to be of an age where seven hours on a plane and a few more hours of driving, would not cause a complete breakdown of family unity. besides sleeping on the couch is never fun except when you go to the
Once i got on the side of the dolphin i had to told its fine but, right when i touch it the dolphin went crazy and took me down,I started to drown and was scared to let go . Then i got out the little pool we were in and just went straight into the car and left everyone because i was
My parents had said we could go home and get our swimsuits, and head to the lake for the last swim of the season. We got home, quickly grabbed our swimming suits and leaped back in the car and headed out. As soon as we got to the lake I was stunned the lake looked so sparkly and surprisingly clean with only a few leaves. We headed on to the sandy beach, and I hesitantly put my toes in. Then I shrieked and leaped out back onto the safety and warmth of the
On the way we played music and played I spy. My dad parked the car at the cabin and we started to get our stuff out of the car. I walked in to see a nice cabin with maple wood and beautiful pictures. I took my stuff up to my room and then ran all the way down to the lake where I was on my knees looking down in the clear clear water. I could even see my reflection.
On this vacation I went to the beach, Universal Studios, and Disney world. We drove to Daytona and stayed in a little house/ village. It was my mom, my dad, Cate, Gavin, and I. I was in a car for 12 hours, not fun. We went on this vacation because we needed to get away for a while, is what my parents said anyways. We needed to have fun too.
Being very fortunate to travel, my wife and I decided to traveo to Hawaii. It was our first trip to that paradisaical place. The experience was fabulous from the very beginning. We flew to the island, and before the plane could land, we were amazed at beautiful blue and clarity of the sea. As we reached towards the beach we were able to see the bottom of the ocean.
