My Favorite Summer Memory
By: Christina Ricucci
Summer is almost everyone’s favorite time of year. From the warm sunshine, to the beach BBQ’s, to the sand in our toes, summer is always a special time of year. There are so many ways to create beautiful, fun memories with your family and friends!
One of my absolute favorite summer memories happened in the summer of 2012. I was with a big group of good friends at the Camp Pendleton beach down in San Diego, CA. We were camping out there in a couple tents and an RV, and that’s all we needed to have a great time! (Well, that and the beach of course!) One night, we were planning on going for a bike ride around the camp, but I had never learned how to ride a bike because I was always dancing growing up. I know, I know- 13 years old and I couldn’t ride a bike… it was pretty embarrassing. But no need to worry because that night, my wonderful friends taught me how!! I was a little shaky at first, but then I got the hang of it, and once I got it, I just couldn’t stop!! We rode all around the beach that night with the wind blowing in our hair. We completely lost track of time, and it was incredible. That will forever be one of my most remarkable summer memories. So, the moral of this story is get out there and try some new things this summer. Who knows- you may be making summer memories that will last a lifetime!!
