I am currently visiting my grandparents for the summer. My mother, brother and I drove down from northern California to spend a few months with them before school starts. My plans include spending a lot of time with my family and enjoying the beaches on the warmer days. We also plan on visiting the neighborhood parks, which are much bigger than the ones up north. My summer will include a lot of fun-filled activities for me and my family.

I always find myself at the beaches because I have taken an interest in surfing. San Diego is a great place for the summer season, especially since the weather is great all year round. The art museums in San Diego are also very interesting and a must see while visiting the city. Since I like the outdoors, I’d also like to visit Yosemite National Park in the near future. I’m grateful to have the opportunity to visit these places with such convenience.

My plan is to visit Cuyamaca Rancho State Park this summer and eventually Yosemite before the year is up. I get great pleasure in volunteering at the Midway Museum because I spend a lot of my time helping my community. I enjoy any type of recreation that involves nature. We are blessed to have one of the best parks in this wonderful country that we live in.
