SUMMER
(Descriptive Essay)

     Everyone has a comfortable place to escape to for relaxation.  They go there when they need to be alone and not with people to disturb them.  My place is nature in the summer.  The summer time relaxes me like no exact place could.  Nature, in the summer, relaxes me with its naturedness.

     I love sitting in the grass and listening to the nature sounds around  me while it's summer.  One of the sounds I tune to first is the sound of the birds singing and chirping away as if they are creating a song.  After sitting for a few minutes, I'll hear the light breeze coming down through the trees, rustling their leaves.  Besides those two things I hear, it is a peaceful quietness that you can't get in a city or town.  That's why I love nature, but only in the summer.  They are always associated with each other.      When I look around me, in the summer time when I'm outside somewhere, I see beautiful bright clear things.  For example, the tall green grass and the leaves on the trees sway in the breeze.  Then I see bright or pastel flowers around, never too far away from any one person.  Most days, unless rainy, are bright, sunny, and warm.  The sky is a beautiful landscape blue with little clouds, if any, in it.  If  I'm in the forest, I see big tall trees all around me.

     The feeling of summer all around me is friendly to me.  The sun is so warm against my hot skin.  And the breeze cools my skin off again as it lightly touches it from blowing down from the trees.  Then, when I am sitting in the grass, I either feel its dryness or its moistness against my body.

     I also love the smells of summer that are in any place you are, but I will not talk about it in this essay.  I will now say,  I absolutely am perfectly calm whenever I am listening, feeling, and looking at the summer around me.  Summer is my favorite season, and nature when it's summer is relaxing and comfortable.

MY MOST COMFORTABLE PLACE
(Descriptive Essay)
The place that I feel most comfortable is my hometown of Huntington Beach. Huntington Beach is in California about forty miles south of  Los Angles. It is known as the surfing capital of the world and the best beach in Orange County.       I relax as I watch the surfers gently glide over the tumbling ocean waves. Seeing the tall palm trees sway in the wind is calming to me as I watch the rolling sand dunes. The pier, as red as a ruby, stands out to me among the deep blue ocean. As I lay on the sand, I see kites rise above the clouds and soar gracefully in the wind. The fisherman cast their line off the pier hoping to feel a tug and reel in a big fish.       The sounds of Huntington Beach are that of  harmony. Seagulls peacefully chirp as they soar overhead searching for food. The howling wind whistles through the beach like an arriving train. As the crash of the waves thunder through my ears, it brings me back to reality while I day dream. The sound of oil rigs across Main Street sound like a steady drum keeping the beat in a orchestra of sounds.

      Everything on Huntington Beach has its own unique feel. The salty air blowing on my face feels wet and cool as it passes by. The feeling of the grainy sand is comforting to my feet as I walk across the shore. When I plunge into the ocean's salt water, it feels refreshing to my skin like a glass of water on a hot day.

      Huntington Beach is my most comfortable place mainly because of the sights, sounds, and the unique feel of everything mentioned in this essay. When I'm there, I feel totally relaxed as if I were in my own little world. Most of all, Huntington Beach is my most comfortable place because it is my favorite place to be on the earth.
