When I was 10 years old we went on our annual family vacation. I had been sleeping on the drive to the most beautiful place in the world, in my opinion. When I awoke, I found I was in paradise—white sand beaches and the bluest water. That evening, sitting on the beach, it seemed the moon was sitting on the water; to my amazement, a group of dolphins swam gracefully by. It's a site that after 22 years is still fresh in my memory. It is a magical place that I could never thank my parents enough for sharing with me. I plan to share this place with my children and their children. Do yourself a favor and share this place with the ones you love. It's a place they'll never forget!
