During winter break, my family and I went to Hawaii. It was sooooo much fun! I got to relax, go to the beach, get fresh cool air, and best of all, eat good food!
In Hawaii, the weather is nice and relaxing. The temperature is perfect, and the sun always shines.
My grandma has a beautiful garden, and she has an orange tree. Sometimes we would go climb up the tree and pick oranges. I was afraid the tree would snap, and I would fall to the ground.
I think one of the best parts of the vacation was going to the beach. We went to countless number of beaches in such a short amount of time. At the beach, I boogie boarded, created sand sculptures, and tons more. My favorite beach is called Bellows. Its on a military base, so it’s only open on weekends. The waves were pretty big, but we still had a great time. Once in while you can find fish! They swim really fast, so it was hard to follow them. I remember them being really shiny. My sister said that she felt one go around her leg.
One time, our whole family went to go swim to another island. It took a really long time, but we eventually made it. On our way back the current was really strong. It kept pulling us back, and we started drifting away. There was no one to help us, so we struggled a bit. But thankfully we pulled it off and made it safely back home.
During our vacation in Hawaii we went on a hike up a mountain. It was called Diamond Head. It took only about 30 minutes to go to the top. The view at the peak was amazing. You could see to whole city beneath you. And the beautiful sea to your right. Everything was just perfect.
The food in Hawaii has got to be my favorite thing about Hawaii. Everyday we would eat something delicious. Besides, the seafood is really fresh. One of my favorite restaurants is called 678. It’s a Korean BBQ restaurant where you can cook your own meat or they can cook it for you. I’m really sad because they don’t have it in Austin. On New Years, we went to a really fancy restaurant where the scene was really pretty. It was a buffet and there was so much food to eat. Each person costed $60, so I had to make sure I really filled my stomach.
Overall, I really miss the winter break, and I wish to go to Hawaii again next year. I miss all the memories I made with my family, and I hope to make more.
