Road Trip!

Last April vacation, I took a road trip to Florida. We were gone from a Saturday to a Sunday. The drive took 27 hours just to get there, so it was about 60 hours driving altogether. We drove through 11 states. Those states were: Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, D.C., Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida.

Driving there was so much fun! On the trip there was: My mom, my brother, Alyxandra H. Mrs. H., and me. We were listening to music the whole time. We played games like the License Plate game, the 50 States game, 20 Questions, and many other games. Every once in a while we would stop for a snack, then continue on our way. Alyxandra and I were having a blast! We were watching the people that went by, and when they looked, I would wave to them. Alyxandra usually made goofy faces at them 😀

When we finally got there, it was about 11:00 p.m. We unpacked everything we would need for the night, such as a toothbrush, and our pillows and pajamas. We were staying at a beautiful house. It was in a quiet neighborhood, and had an awesome view of a nice pond. It even had it’s very own pool on the back porch!

We went to the bench every single day except for that Thursday. The beach was gorgeous. It had a tram that we road on, and it had a nice little boardwalk on the way down. The sand was so soft and white that it didn’t even seem real. The water was the warmest ocean water I have ever felt in my whole life. It was perfect. You never got cold. The funniest thing happened one day while we were all in the water. We were all swimming in the water, just splashing around. All of a sudden, we started to see a bunch of fish. Apparently Mrs. H. was right in the middle of a giant school of fish! She got whacked in the back of the head by one fish, then when she turned around to see what happened, she got slapped in the face by another fish! It was SO funny!

The zoo was spectacular. There was almost every animal you could imagine; there were parrots, zebras, lions, giraffes, antelopes, monkeys, alligators, and tons more! We watched a cool show in a tent that had an animal trainer that was showing us a bunch of animals. After the show, we ate lunch under a tent. It was so cool, because some of the meals came with little carrying cases shaped as either a monkey or a bear.

Florida was awesome. Just writing this post made me want to go back! It is so nice there that you never want to leave (that’s just my opinion). I am so glad I got to go, and I hope someday I can go to Florida again (but this time I’m flying :))!
