My most memorable vacation was a trip to Florida with two of my best friends a few years ago. They were both moving halfway across the country soon, so we decided to splurge on one last trip together. We drove all the way to Florida from New York.

This was a great way to just spend time with each other and not worry about anything else. We were able to talk, swim, and just relax without a care in the world. On the second day, we decided to fish on the beach since we knew there were lots of fish in the water and we wanted to cook fish for dinner. We fished for a couple of hours with no luck, when suddenly my friend felt a tug. It was a strong tug, so he tried to reel it in and his fishing pole almost snapped in half. After a few minutes of struggling, he finally reeled in what looked like an eel. It was about a foot long, black, and tube-like with a mouth that looked like a suction cup.
