Last Sunday morning, Aunt Emily made an announcement. She told us that she was going to take us on a cruise! I was very surprised, knowing how expensive a holiday like that could be. However, we agreed. We aren’t a wealthy family, but we do have a little money put aside, over the years, which we usually use part of, for vacations.
When the day of departure finally arrived, We were thrilled to see how huge and luxurious the ship was. Our cruise liner sailed distinguishly out to sea, as our holiday began.
What a disappointment! There was so little to do on board. The boredom almost drove us mad. We visited several ports, but we didn’t have the freedom to do what wanted to. Furthermore, we had to follow a very tight schedule of guided tours an visits to museums. It was an uninteresting experience!

My Day at the Beach
Last week my friend and I were bored after three weeks of holidays, so we rode our bikes to Smith Beach, which is only five kilometers from where I live. When we arrived at the beach, we were surprised to see there was hardly anyone there. After having a quick dip in the ocean, which was really cold, we realized one reason there were not many people there. It was also quite windy.
After we bought some hot chips at the takeaway store nearby, we rode our bikes down the beach for a while, on the hard, damp part of the sand. We had the wind behind us and, before we knew it, we were many miles down the beach. Before we made the long trip back, we decided to paddle our feet in the water for a while, and then sit down for a rest. While we were sitting on the beach, just chatting, it suddenly dawned on us that all the way back, we would be riding into the strong wind.
When we finally made it back home, we were both totally exhausted! But we learned some good lessons that day.
