If I could go anywhere for a class trip, I would go to the wonderful Panama City Beach, which is in the Gulf of Mexico. If this trip were to happen, I would be in a group with my friends, Ava and Temple. During the trip, my group would have a blast both in and out of the water. We would eat amazing cuisines, see lots of creatures, and spend lovely nights out on the beach. Everything would have to be perfect, complete with a cherry on top.

While there, I would find tons of shells ranging from the size of a penny, to the size of probably the Eiffel Tower. Nearby, my friends would be demanding that the crabs need to go, telling the crabs to go away. The only response Ava and Temple would get, however, would be a pinch. The teachers would give us free time for the rest of the day after we return to the mainland. My group unanimously decides to go to the beach. While at the beach, we would have another picnic, with this one being fit for Queen Elizabeth! That night, my group would have a lovely stroll on the beach before the sun sets. The seagulls would call out to us as if we were once friends while we gazed at the orange and pink streaks of the sunset. Furthermore, we would spend the rest of the day in the resort's hot tubs.
