Did you know that Florida has 663 miles of beaches? No wonder it gets more than 80 million visitors a year. My family and I always look forward to our vacations in Daytona, Florida during the frigid winter break. The other night as I was sitting on the couch the smell of an orange, my sister had been eating, reminded me of one of my vacations in Florida. I will never forget the moment when I rolled the car window down and smelt the fresh sweet air. I couldn’t wait to walk along the beach and feel the soft white smooth sand between my toes. All I wanted to do was go to the beach. I could hear the pelicans screeching, a little girl screaming as her mother splashed her, the airplanes and boats even and the palm trees swaying in the wind. The first thing I did when I got there was change into my bathing suit. I was too excited to even put sunscreen on or wait for my parents. I would run onto the beach straight into the salty warm water. My siblings and I would spend the whole day skim boarding. Eventually we got tired and would lie on the damp warm sand and look into the cloudless cerulean blue sky. The blazing hot sun felt so good on our backs and the grains of sand glistened in the sun like a diamond ring. I’ll never forget visiting my Uncle Dave’s house in Orlando and seeing how gigantic their oranges trees were. They towered over me and it smelt like one of those strong orange cleaners. My Uncle would always pick out the best oranges. My mouth waters every time I think about how sweet they are. Usually bedtime is always a problem for me, but in Florida I fell asleep like a baby. It’s not just the beach, but the things that surround it soothe me. I’m comforted by the sounds of the ocean and I love sleeping on the balcony. I fell asleep to the sound of the waves smacking onto the shore and gently moving back into the sea. I loved feeling the wind caress on my…
For my senior project I am investigating the career of being a professional sand sculptor. I have always been interested in crossing off the chance of being an apprentice at this topic. I also have been interested in sand artistry since I saw it on television and childhood times with my sister. I wanted to do research something unique and interesting for myself. Sand sculpting sparked my interest because artists take time to create pieces of work while enjoying nature. They enter competitions where…
Sand Between My Toes
It was the summer of 2003, my first time going to Myrtle Beach. It was the summer before I went into third grade at Mineral Wells. I was so thrilled when I found out I was going to the beach. What pleased me even more was the fact that we were going with my grandmother and cousins. The more people the better I always thought and seven was a good number. One hot and very humid July morning, I started packing my new pink Disney princess suitcase which of course my grandmother…

It is spring break, in the middle of March, my senior year. The salty floating breeze of
Miami's coast is enough to make my knees go weak. I look into the cloudless, cerulean blue sky
and see perfection of life. In the distance I see rolling clear-blue waves crash into each other with
such force as like football players. I squint in the distance of the progressing whitecaps and come
upon a floating yacht. I knew I was going to love being here.
Focusing my attention to the beach, I…
of the desert with no one else around? What would be the thought going through your head if you were in their position? Many things can go on if you pass up a hitch hiker or pick them up. Also the same event takes place in a reading called the “White Sands “, by Geoff Dryer. In this story the couple who had picked the hitch hiker up made a poor decision on their way through the desert, and because of this they experienced many various emotions.
On their way through the desert the couple was trying…
