Road Trip adventure

Hi Blog world,

I hope everyone had a great weekend. I know I did. I went on a road trip to Biloxi, Mississippi with some of my friends. I was worried about getting car sick, and I had a few times of getting the case of nerves, however, I did not throw up. I think this is because of the good random conversation that we had.

Soon we were at the hotel. It was nice and to me it looked very fancy with all the nice sheets and the TV on the wall. We got our bags settled then we went hunting for a place to eat. We ended up eating at a restaurant that used to be a gas station. I got a cheeseburger and fries. I also got to try fries that were dipped in gravy and had roast beef on them. All the food we had was tasty, but soon all of our stomachs were full.

Once we left, we were headed to the main event and the fun or should I say “sinning” would begin. That’s right I went gambling at the casino!

At first I was overwhelmed at all the lights, noise and second-hand smoke, so my friend and I went outside so I could have a quick breather. Once I was ready to go back inside, we got our membership cards. Then we went up to the first floor to the non-smoking section. We looked around at all the games then we settled on one. I played the first few games for my grandpa-I lost. After that my friend and I went back downstairs and played some more. I did not do so well, and I only got .12 back. When we were done playing we went and got drinks.  We then went back outside for another break.

To be honest, this was one of the best parts of the trip. We were able to enjoy looking at the water and the air felt fresh to my lungs. We were able to talk about life, and how I can only be truly happy, by letting life be, and by work at setting and achieving  goals.

Soon we were back at the hotel-fast asleep.

The next day, the fun continued at the Hard Rock and Casino. This time, because it was early in the morning, there was hardly anyone there. My friends and I were able to split up and we had a wide variety of machines to choose from. This time, I came out of it with a little bit more money in my pocket then I did the previous night. Once again, at the end of the gambling my friend and I, went outside and enjoyed the sights. We were able to enjoy each other’s company.

Once we were back together, we decided to go to a souvenir shop. I did not find anything I wanted, but I enjoyed shopping anyway.

Inside a shark! Okay, truly its the souvenir shop.

After the group met up again, we were all hungry and I had a craving for ice cream. To help settle my craving we went to a pizza parlor that also served ice cream. We ordered two different kinds of pizza. We also had fun waiting because we had the opportunity to make a craft with a clay material. I made a dog.

The two pizzas were delicious and interesting to taste; it was also fun to have a milk shake.  Once we were all done with eating we hit the road seeing all we could see on our way home.

Blog soon,
