A HOLIDAY TRIP
A DAY AT THE SEA-SIDE
Points: Introduction – Hired a hut – Passed the time merrily – Conclusion.
On last summer vacation we spent a day at the Hawk’s Bay with some of our friends. Hawk’s Bay is at a distance of eight kilometers from our residence. We all decided to go by taxi. It was a happy union. We set out for the sea-side merrily and cheerfully. The weather was pleasant. Cold wind was blowing. The sky was partially overcast.4essay.blogspot.com
As we reached the sea-side at about 9 A.M. we smiled at each other in joy. We were in a mood to enjoy ourselves as much as possible. We carried enough food and fruit. We hired a hut because it was necessary to take rest in the afternoon. First of all, we had some refreshment. We then decided to tell jokes. All of us told all the jokes that we remembered. We laughed so much that we forgot all our troubles and problems.
By the time the sun grew hot, we decided to come out of our hut. There was a huge crowd there, All were enjoying to their best. We wandered on the sea shore and collected pebbles and shell. We enjoyed rowing in a boat. It was a very pleasant experience. On the next occasion we bathed in water for about an hour. We played various types of games while we were in the water. We had brought a rubber canoe along with us. Some of us took that out and filled it with air and started rowing against the on-coming wave. Very swiftly time was passing and we felt hungry.4essay.blogspot.com
It was now lunch time. Each of us carried best of dishes prepared at home. We fell to eating and enjoyed every morsel of them. In short we did full justice to it without caring for our stomachs. After the lunch, the entertainment began. Asif entertained us with his songs. It was a discovery for us that he is such a good singer. Then another friend came forward to tell funny stories. His stories were full of humor. They made us roll with laughter. We played cards for sometime.
One thing I liked most was the sunset. I saw the sun slowly going down. The sun had lost all its fierceness and heat. It touched the horizon and then vanished. The sky became orange coloured. The gradual manner of sinking of sun in the water of the Arabian Sea was full of grandeur and splendor. As the sun sank, thing around us presented a vast contrast to what they had been before. The whole scene was sweet.
We enjoyed every moment of the excursion to the sea-side. A wave of happiness which went round us, will remain fresh in our memory for a long time. We were now quite tired. We wished to return home. We hired two taxies and returned home at about 9 P.M after enjoying the whole day.
