Personal Narrative: My First Trip To The Beach

Decent Essays
In 2004 my family and I made our first trip to the beach. The adventure seemed to take a lifetime to reach our destination. Being in the car for 12 hours is not what any child would call a fun time. My brother and I would play video games and watch movies to past the time away and eat the snacks mom would pack us.
We finally had reached our destination Destin, Florida. My little brother is so excited to see the water, he runs through the screen door that goes out on our balcony. At first I was a little frightened by the endless amounts of blue water. The waves would come in huge and loud crashing onto the beach.
