To prepare for the next Performance Task, I am asking you to write a review on a vacation destination you have recently been on. Your review can be either good or bad. Please rate your experience, providing as many details as possible! Persuade us to either visit your wonderful location or avoid it at all costs!
Me: Ahem. I have an important announcement to make. NEVER let your mom drive on Skyline Drive, it wont ends well.
Avocado: Let’s start from the beginning.
Me: I was born and raised in farm country-
Avocado: Not that far back. *mutters “idiot!”*
Me: Shut it you can of green slop. Anyways, in the summer of 2017 my family went to Shenandoah National Park. It’s known for its animals including deer, bear, rodents, birds, and vegetation. Shenandoah runs along the Appalachian Mountains. It took us about SEVEN hours to get there. But, it was totally worth it. On one of the nights we camped there our tent filled with water (the tent’s roof had a hole in it-don’t go camping with us).
Another time I fed a wild deer with my bare hand (I named her Sally.) Overall it was an awesome trip. I definitely recommend going to Shenandoah National Park this summer. There is a really big meadow with so many deer. Also, remember when I told you guys not to let your mom drive? Well, we were driving on one of America’s most historic roads, Skyline Drive (the road with the tunnel), and a mama bear ran out in front of a van. My mom slammed on the breaks and we all jolted to a stop. After Mom made sure the coast was clear, we kept driving. Then a BABY appeared! Mom slammed on the breaks again. Then we were about to keep driving and ANOTHER baby ran in front on us. That was three times I almost lost my lunch in thirty seconds. And may I remind you, I don’t handle really windy roads that well. I even get motion sickness on the bus….
Avocado: Stay on track! No one wants to hear about your “suffering” on the school bus. I feel bad enough for the kids sitting next to you.
Me: They don’t mind. All I do on the bus anyways is sit and try not to think about food. Anyways, all this talk about roads is making me feel bad so let’s change the subject…
Me: Anyways, It was raining on one of the days so we went to this nice lodge to hang out for a while. It was warm and we got some food there (I didn’t get anything-go figure). After my family ate we went down stairs to the basement and found an empty room. We played cards and sat around. Yeah, I liked that place. Hmmm, we also went on a lot of walks. We traveled to a mountain Stony Man. At the top was a beautiful spring. I have some spring rocks from it. Shenandoah has so many waterfalls. We climbed them and looked under the overhangs. I was hoping for some sort of secret passageway but didn’t find any. You probably think that was stupid but come on! If you were in my position you wouldn’t have been able to resist. Anyways, Shenandoah National Park is a great vacation for the whole family! I sound like a commercial- camping is great and you don’t want to miss the waterfalls. Come to the park lodge and enjoy a nice cup of coffee!-I’m actually trying now-and it is pretty fun-try it some time. But for real, it is a really fun park and I hope you consider going there!
