So you’re probably wondering how a bracelet can be special. Well I have a bracelet that is VERY special to me, and if I ever lost it I would be very very upset. I got this bracelet for my 13th birthday, and I was so excited when I opened it up! It was a charm bracelet. The reason my charm bracelet is special to me is because the charms represent something about me, and the places I have been! Each charm has a story to it so it makes the bracelet very interesting. Right now, I only have 9 charms on it, but I hope to get more, as more things happen to me thorughout life! I will never lose this bracelet because it says on my wrists at all times except when I go to bed! I cherish it, and will keep it forever! …Some of the charms may seem interesting to you. The most interesting charms that I think are on my bracelet are the Alligator and the Sting Rey. The Alligator represents the park I went to, when I went on vacation in Florida. There was an Alligator park, and you could go canoeing while they were in the water! It was so scary, but one of the best expierences of my life! The Sting Rey represents my trip to the Caymen Islands when I went on a cruise. I got to swim with them! I was so scared at first, but I learned a lot of things like the Sting Reys won’t sting you unless you frighten them, so you just have to be very calm! Those two things happened a LONG time ago, but I bet you I will remember them for the rest of my life, and I have the charm bracelet to prove it!
I’ve been on LOTS of vacations before, but none of them even compared to this one! Late August of 2009 was the time my Grandfather and I decided to go on this major trip. We packed our things, and headed to New York City. But we did NOT stop there! We hopped on a plane and headed down to Maryland. Now I know what you’re thinking, “Maryland? What’s so special about that?” We’ll it wasn’t just Maryland…it was Washington, D.C! That’s right! Our nations capital! It’s a BEAUTIFUL city! One of the first things I recognized was that all of the street names were states! I thought that was really interesting. Another thing I noticed was that, not only did people from ourcountry come to see the capital, but a lot of people from other countries came to see it as well! The first day/night in D.C was good and bad! How so? Well, the moment we left our hotel room, we headed for the White House. I personally think that it looks diffrent in person than it does on t.v, or in a magazine. Something really interesting was going on in front of it at this time. There was a hunger strike! I couldn’t believe my eyes! But, this isa free country, so why not! The next place we went was the Washington Monument. It didn’t look that far from the White House, but it definitely was! By the time we got there it was already dark out. The monument was SO pretty at night time! From the Washington Monument you could see the World War II Memorial, and the Lincoln Memorial. They didn’t look that far away either! I’m guessing we walked about 8 miles that night! The bad part about this night was that by the time we walked back to the hotel, I was sick to my stomach(it must’ve been from the heat)! My Grandfather and I spent five days there. Now remember, that was only the first night! So if you’re planning on going to the United States capital, I would totally recomend it! But try not to walk too much in 100 degree weather!
Highlights from the trip!
