My Summer Trip: Audra Essay

334 words - 2 pages

That can get dangerous though, we usually don’t leave the river without a few bruises and bumps, but it isn’t anything that a band-aid can’t fix. At the end of the day, we are all really worn-out, so we usually make dinner over the scorching fire. Believe it or not, camping food is some of the best food ever. I like to go down to the river at night, lay on a rock and just stare at the stars. It can be very romantic, listening to the water stream past us as if it could go on forever. That is the most comforting, soothing place to be in the world. We also take long walks through the woods, and climb up this one life-size rock. This is a good place for families to go and relax. It’s very enjoyable, very inexpensive, and very pleasant. I’ll go there for as long as I can still walk. I’ll take my kids, my grandchildren, and hopefully, my great grandchildren.
