The private island was gorgeous, and the activities abundant We walked with our suitcases from the bus stop to the pier, and then, when I saw the ship, I was a little awe struck.
The sun shone in the clear blue sky. Another evening, we saw a comedy dance in the live theater, and then the next evening we went to a concert. Jesus did say that the good news must be preached in all the inhabited earth. It was so big! As far as the eye could see were scores of little islands, many uninhabited, all in the quaintly named Roaringwater Bay.
Every now and then, I woke up to see flashes of rugged yet beautiful countryside appearing beyond the stone-walled narrow lanes. I still have some of the coins in my scrap book. My mother talked to a woman who readily accepted our magazines, The Watchtower and Awake! However, because of our very early morning start, I fell asleep soon after our journey by car began.
Each one of us picked the name of a Bible character out of a bag and then mimed an experience related to the character. I need not have worried. We went to the movies one evening and dined with friends another.
We mentioned that we were just about to go home but would send someone to visit her. The air was filled with a soft, sweet fragrance, wafting from a mass of bright-yellow, coconut-scented gorse bushes. During the day, there were pool parties, a casino, tennis, golf, jogging, and of course, there was the ever present shuffle board if nothing else, which, actually, is a very competitive game and kind of fun.
Finally, the ship, we spent seven days on this thing and never got bored, not once. We made our own barbecue out of driftwood and stones and cooked some mussels that we had gathered from among the rocks swept by the crystal-clear sea.
As we had done on Heir Island, we began by mentioning that we were on vacation and were spending some of that time sharing a heartwarming message from the Bible. From the moment our plane landed, I was captivated. Sandy bays led up to rocky cliffs, where cormorants and gannets nested with their young.
The Irish never forget a face! That was my first time to New York, too, and I was so excited to be there. When we met her again a few days later, she said that she had enjoyed reading the magazines. My favorite new experience was kayaking. The others had to guess who it was. We took time to learn a little about Skibbereen too.
We invented our own beach games, and I even tried Irish dancing. Once again, the people we met were friendly and welcoming. I knew they were big, but this was even bigger than it looked in the pictures. Not only was it great fun but it was especially satisfying to know that I was doing something pleasing to Jehovah and was bringing praise to him.
I love serving our God, and when you have great friends and family who feel the same way and work along with you, it becomes even more of a joy.
We played Bible charades. Now, let me see, well, one of my first trips outside of the United States was on a cruise to the Bahamas. It was not only a floating resort with the pools and hot tubs and dining.
The first night, we arrived at the town of Skibbereen and spent a delightful, spiritually upbuilding evening with a family who had moved to Ireland to help with the Kingdom-preaching work.
So we spent the day sharing encouraging Scriptural thoughts with these friendly and hospitable people and admiring the wonderful unspoiled landscape. So, what did I think of my week in Ireland? We went fishing for our supper, but the seals that joined us got to the fish first.
There was so much to do. How would an active year-old girl who lives in a busy London suburb cope with the slower pace of life in a small town at the southwest tip of Ireland?
When I got home, I thanked Jehovah for giving me so many loving, spiritually-minded friends and for the beautiful memories that I shall treasure forever. We drove down a narrow, steep road to houses perched on the edge of a cliff overlooking the Irish Sea. The next day, my parents, my younger brother, our cousins, another family, and I took the ferry to tiny Heir Island, home to fewer than 30 people.To me, my best vacation ever is the time I spent in Dalat 4 years ago.
It was so beautiful and memorable that I always keep it in my mind. My vacation lasted 3 days and I was really happy during these days.
My Best Vacation Ever It was the summer ofand my best friend Candace and I wanted to go on vacation. The fizz in the drink made my nose tingle.
I loved the feeling of the hot sand on my feet. /5(12). - One of my favorite family traditions is summer vacation. Every summer without fail we go on vacation.
For the past ten years we have been going to Disney World with our family friends the Battaglia's, so it has turned into a tradition up until last summer when we broke our florida adventure to go to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. My Best Vacation Ever! “YOU need a challenge to take your mind off your exams,” said my parents.
“Let’s go and visit your cousins in Ireland and share in preaching to people who rarely hear the good news of the Kingdom.” I didn’t think it was a good idea.
