“Trip to Paradise” As I watched out the window of the car, I could feel the butterflies of excitement fluttering around in my stomach. I had always wanted to go to Florida; I wanted to see the ocean and the white beaches. I heard several stories about how fun and beautiful Florida was. In a few hours, I would finally find out for myself. My excitement was almost too great to handle the long car ride to my destination. I settled myself in to watch the scenery as we started our journey. Eventually, the trees of Arkansas turned into the beautiful kudzu vines of Mississippi. The ivy-like vines crawled and covered almost everything on the side of the road. There were massive kudzu sculptures that were once just trees and electric poles. Before I knew it, we were in Alabama. When we hit the busy interstate in Mobile I knew we were getting close. Shortly after driving through the long dark tunnel, I could see the water. Close to one of the bridges sat an old battleship. The ship looked old, yet majestic sitting in the water. Shortly after that, we finally were across the Florida state line. The causeway we drove on was curved and tall enough for the sailboats below to pass under. As I looked down, I could see a group of beautiful condos on the shore. They contrasted brightly with the white sand around them, painted colors normally found in a box of crayons. I took in the sight of all the fancy high-rise condos and hotels, with a few beach huts sprinkled in between. We arrived at our hotel, and I quickly unloaded and unpacked my belongings. The beach was waiting for me. I ran outside to find one of the most beautiful sights I had ever seen. The long stretch of sand was pure white and sparkled in the sun as if it had glitter mixed in with it. It almost looked like snow. The sand was hot on my feet as I walked down the beach to the water. I could hear it squeak a little with every foot step. As I

    Five minutes later, we were on our way to Sea World. We laughed and sang until we arrived at the amazing place. I could smell the fresh aromatic scent of the fresh water-park as I stepped out of the car. I heard the birds chirping, a patter and the trees danced with the cool breeze. The first thing I saw, was a huge roller coaster extending over a small building in the sky, that seemed like a mini tower. The water park was colorful and everything was in order.…

    Somehow this is when it all clicked together. We’d all be there—in this adventure together. Why would this be any different than driving a few hours to a ski resort? We’d just fly a few hours instead. And, though I wasn’t ready to admit it out loud just yet, Florida didn’t sound half bad. My sister and I made our way down the hall to the computer room and looked up a lot more facts about Florida. Suddenly three days seemed like too long to…

    I crept out of the room quietly and tried to make my way through the cottage without waking the Bertram family. I stepped outside and onto the silky sand that seemed to stretch on forever. I jogged to one of the beach's most powdery sand dunes and jumped in feet first, sand rising around my shins. Running the sand through my fingers as if to tell if it were real, I was deep in thought. Whether or not I was dead and this was heaven was probably my…

    My mind was overwhelmed by the drastic change in surroundings I was experiencing. My delicate lips were being run-down by the dry and overwhelming heat of California. The sun was also constantly beating against my skin which gave it an amazing tan. Even though I was used to heat, I was not accustomed to such dry conditions that California had set for me. Yet the view that my eyes glazed upon was something I have never witnessed before. The clashing of the midnight blue waves against the grainy sand and the velvet sun…

    As yet I must tell myself not to get to close. I left a note for Marie, for she was still asleep in bed. Nice thing about Georgia is there are beaches everywhere. I love the sun, the light, the warmth, the water, everything. I got there a little after 9am because walking along the small town roads made it feel like, I was the only person in the world. I could be free, at peace. Watching the suns horizon begin to peak through the sky. Nothing like ive ever experienced before. I got to the beach and to my surprise there was already people there. I just set up my chair and slipped off my cover, putting on my heart glasses my mother had given me in spring for my birthday. Laying back for awile I felt the serenity of relaxation, even if it was only for a little while. This was going to be a beautiful summer. But all good things must come to an…

    Days like this when my body craved the shore. The waves lapped against the shoreline creating an intricate pattern along the smooth, off white sand. The sun shone off the rippling water, its golden light warped and distorted in the azure, glassy waves. Big, soft, puffy clouds floated over the blue skies making irregular shapes. The sight of the sky gave me a warm feeling inside.…

    They say Florida is one of the most beautiful states in the country, and I had to see it with my own eyes in order to believe it. As I walked out of Orlando International Airport, I could not believe how humid and beautiful this place was. Living for eighteen years, I have never ever in my life have seen such a beautiful place. I stood outside the door for almost four minutes looking around and taking pictures at the beautiful palms. We started walking to the parking lot, where all the rental cars were located at; we approach our white mini-van that our parents had already reserved for us. We put our luggage in the back of the car and headed to the resort where we would be staying.…

    As my mum and I walk out of the salty water onto the soft sand I feel the sun beaming down onto my shoulder making it sizzle like a burn. I quickly walk to my day bed and pull out my towel from my bag. Once I finish drying the water off my body I lay out my towel on my day bed, and begin to put on my sunglasses. As I look up from my sunglasses, I see my mums face in shock staring at the horizon. I rapidly swing my head to see what she was so stunned by. My mouth drops in fear.…

    The beach has many great things to experience, it is one of the few places a person can go where they can be completely content by just sitting and taking in their surroundings. The warm and soft sand moves beneath the feet of visitors as they are taking a relaxing walk down the shore. The visitors pass by children building small sandcastles and a strong smell of suntan lotion fills the air surrounding them. The slowly inching tide approaches the sandcastles and starts to chip away at them piece by piece. The water hits the tiny structures and the color of the sand darkens as it is pulled away into the cold lake.…
