My magical visit :: essays research papers
My Magical Visit I remember the visit like it was yesterday. The year was 1990, and it was the month of June. I hadnÃ¢â¬â¢t been off for more than two weeks, and I was bored out of my mind. It really takes a lot to keep a seven year old busy. ThatÃ¢â¬â¢s when it happened. My dad told me that tomorrow we would be going to visit somewhere special. He told me that he also visited this place when he was a kid. I remember the night before we left, I couldnÃ¢â¬â¢t sleep at all. Ã Ã Ã Ã Ã That somewhere special was his familyÃ¢â¬â¢s summer home, which was located in Attica, New York. He said it was a real treat to go there, because he had lived in the city. His mother, who is my grandma, used to take the children there for weeks on end during the summer months. Now it was my turn. I finally got the opportunity to see why going out there was so special. Ã Ã Ã Ã Ã To this day, I can still picture the car ride up there quite well. At that time my dad was driving in a white Ford Taurus. We were staying the weekend, so we each packed a bag with a couple of changes of clothes. We also packed some good food, because my dad and I love to eat. I can still remember my dad cranking up the radio, which was blasting out the tunes on Oldies 104. I also remember the warm summer breeze that was hitting my face as we rolled down the long country roads. Although it only took forty-five minutes to get there, I must have asked, Ã¢â¬Å"Are we there yet?Ã¢â¬ about five times. Finally my dad said that we would be there in a little less than five minutes. We turned right on Nesbit, which is the road where the house is located. The road was made of stones. I can still hear the stones shooting up against the wheel wells as the car roared down the road. Finally, we arrived at the summer home and pulled into the driveway. Ã Ã Ã Ã Ã The white house with red shutters that was set back about five acres. The house included two bathrooms, four bedrooms, a kitchen, and a dining room. There were also two giant pole barns that were located to the left of the house. Pine trees outlined the massive plot of land.
