So hey guys! As much as I want to be active, I just can't. Everyday after school I have track, and all day meets on Saturdays. Plus Sunday is my homework/do nothing day. I just don't feel like doing anything. I love you all and I feel like I'm losing everyone but I'll only be online every once in a while until summer. But even then I'm taking summer gym to get my P.E. credits out of the way so I won't be online as much as the previous summers. So anyway, wanna hear about Florida? For spring break we went to Florida. I don't know how much people from other countries really know about the U.S. XD but if you don't know, Florida is pretty much the vacation hotspot for the entire east coast. And this was my first time going. It was just me and my parents. It was so beautiful. As soon as we crossed the border it started getting prettier. The trees were green with hanging moss. Then came the palm trees and the exotic birds and oh my god it was just amazing. We stayed in Clearwater, just south of Tampa. We were right off the bay. The dock in the back of our resort faced the Bay and we could walk down a block and be at the Gulf. We stayed in this tiny little resort. It was on a back street, so it was quiet, and it was small enough that you could sit out at the patio area and just socialize with all the other people. There was another Ohio family there and the three boys were, like, 9,9, and 11 and they lent me and some other kids their fishing poles and we all fished out in the bay every night. I caught a giant Sheepshead with the 9 year old's help. I was trying to reel it in and I couldn't get it any farther up, so the kid, Daniel, comes over and starts pulling the line up and we got it over the dock. It was amazing! During the day pelicans would sit next to you on the dock and if you caught something, they'd expect you to give it to them. There were several that showed up every day and some of the older kids named them. They were Jerry, Gwen, and Don Don. Jerry was my favorite. Haha, pelicans are my favorite animals now.
Then the beach was amazing!! The water was freezing but it was worth it! We spent our first day there. Our second day was when we explored Clearwater. We went on a speedboat dolphin tour and I got some amazing pictures of dolphins! Then my dad and I went jet skiing. I love jet skiis, and I'd never been in the ocean on one before. We got the ski up to 55. Our third day we went to Busch Gardens in Tampa. It was fun, but my parents don't really like rides, so I had to stand in most of the lines myself. If you're familiar with Busch Gardens, I rode Montu, Gwazi, Cheetah Hunt, SheiKra, and Kumba, as well as Congo River Rapids. It was amazing. Even the food was great! The fourth day it was raining so we bought ponchos and made it our souvenir day. We drove up to a place called John's pass and got most of our shopping done. Then we ate at Frenchys, which again, if you're familiar with the area, you'll know. Then the fifth day, we met up with my dad's uncle and had lunch at the Lobster Pot Bistro. We kept making fun of my dad because he was pronouncing "bistro" as "bristo". XD When he left we went up to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, where the tailless dolphin Winter lives. We saw all the animals there and then spent the rest of the day at the beach. The sixth day was our last, and we spent it all at the beach. I have albino skin, so I got burnt beyond belief. And more freckles. When we woke up at, like, 4 the next morning to leave I could barely move. I had a fever and I was shaking. It hurt to move, and I was super dehydrated. I barely made it to the car. I laid down in the back and slept for over half the trip back. We drove all the way through so we didn't get home until about 9:30 (after being in a car for 15 hours) so naturally we brought our stuff in, practically bathed in aloe, and slept. I didn't go to school that next Monday because of being burnt, being dead tired, and having stuff to take care of. We picked the dog up from the kennel, and unpacked. I wasn't as red Tuesday, so that was good, but it was 50 degrees and I was still wearing shorts. XD Plus I wanted to show off my Henna. I got a Henna on my ankle. It was the little sun symbol for Pinellas County (where Clearwater was). So anyway...That's the short story..It was pretty amazing
How have you guys been???
