It was the best summer of my life. I made a lot of friends, and at the end we got Junior Guard bags, T-shirts, and of course Junior Guard Stripes. This stripe has a lot of sentimental value for me because this is a symbol of the Junior Lifeguard camp. I went through a lot of things at this camp, and I am not going there again, so it can be a very good reminder of time I spent there. This stripe was given to me by the Junior Lifeguard couch.
Since she would take my lunch to school everyday she will make different lunch for me which that was really good the way I never got tired of the same food. Most of the mothers would do the same, make lunch to their children and take it to their school. I remember my mom and I would seat under a huge tree, eat lunch and see my classmates play soccer or basketball. Since where I lived was a small town it was a really quiet and peaceful place, so at lunch time all I could heard was the birds singing, the kids yelling and laughing. Been outside everyday at lunch time was very nice for me because I love nature and the good thing about school lunches in Mexico is that the weather is always warm so kids are always able to go outside and enjoy a beautiful hot day.
ENGL 1311 16 September 2013 “The River” It was a hot day to be on the Guadalupe River for Memorial Day weekend. My family and I loaded up the truck, filled the cooler with cold drinks, packed our swim suits, and headed out. The water seemed warm, you could smell the burgers on the grill, kids were playing and the sun was blazing. You can say it was a perfect time to be out with the family enjoying each other’s company. The river is about 230 mi long.
Two years later and I am married now, madly in love. I'm living a happy life; all because my decision two years ago to trust and let fate follow through. I was fast forward to Buffalo Mountain in the heat of summer, only this time I was alone because David, now my husband had to work. I made my way over to the creek as I reminisced on all the emotions and thoughts I experienced two years earlier when David took me on our first date. I felt calm and content remembering how I fell in love in the majestic fall.
He had since returned from a deployment to Afghanistan and gotten divorced, so we started the summer off with a weeklong hiking trip, reminiscent of the early summers. It was a great bonding time and my dad seemed more lighthearted than he had in years. We talked a lot about my plans for college and I was hopeful that this trip would be a positive experience. We were to spend the rest of the summer in Eagle Mountain where my dad moved with his new wife. I got a job as a lifeguard at the family pool facility on the military base, working everyday trying to save money for school.
After I finished my plate, I thought to myself, “I am most definitely eating here again!” Although the seafood was marvelous, it would not have been as good as it was, without the beaches. Another miraculous thing about Florida was the beaches! The very first day there, I made sure to go to Pensacola Beach! Even though my family wasn’t as exited and energetic as I was, I made sure we went there first! And oh my I had a blast!
Week 1, Assignment Eng 121: English Composition 5/12/14 "Last one to the lake is a rotten egg." When your 8 and your at summer camp everything becomes a race or a game. Who can beat who and what team will win. Camp Edy in NY was my favorite place to go every year and the summer of 1998 was one I could never forget. From horse back riding, to painting, playing sports and swimming and jumping in the lake, summer camp has endless possibilities to the fun you will have.
Since we were a lot of kids, we always invented games and really had great time. In the mornings my cousins and I used to get out of the house and made little expeditions through the forest, we felt like real explorers. When we came back home we put on our bathing suites and got in to the pool, where we spent hours diving and playing and. On the afternoons, after lunch we played cards with the adults, planned our next expedition, played hide and seek, soccer and other outdoor games. As fun as the day was, my favorite time was at night.
Tired, hungry, we walked towards our car rental and it was like we followed the rabbit in his hole from Alice in Wonderland and suddenly the talking was gone, no more crowds; the sky became blue, the air was relaxing and as we drove to our home for the month, the ocean water was picture perfect blue. For one month, my adventures took me along the beaches of Maui, the drive to Hana, and of course, the many spenders of food. Getting up in the morning has been easy but for some reason, the beach was calling me. My window was open and I can smell the ocean waters. Usually, the smell of salt waters from Santa Monica beach has never been a good thing.
One Sunday all the locals had off work so they all decided to do a beach day at the river. The locals have to work Monday thru Saturday, and only get Sundays off. So they all wanted to go lay on the river beach with all their kids and relax. They invited us to go with them, and of course we said yes. Then we saw the truck that they were taking.
