Among the places where I have traveled, I especially like Fort Lauderdale very much. It fills me with beautiful memories. It reminds me of the days when I lived in Vietnam where I was born, especially the coconut trees, the hot and humid weather are like Vietnam. Fort Lauderdale has almost all the tropical fruits like jack fruit, durian, and longan. All these fruits are not grown in California.
I usually come to Fort Lauderdale for a vacation. I leave behind all the problems at work. I feel free of the stresses after I spend my days at the beach. Anyone who comes to Fort Lauderdale and does not take a swim really missed out on all the fun. The water is very warm in Fort Lauderdale, unlike the cold, rather freezing water here in California. If I walk a couple of blocks, I see a pier where many people take a walk.
The beach is crowded with people. I guess they are tourists like myself. Sometimes I see fisherman catching a big fish and I cannot help but stop and take a look. I love fish and all seafood, especially neck clams, mussels, lobsters, and abalone.
After the plane takes off to fly me back home, I still hear the sound of the waves blasting though rocks. In my mind, I imagine the seagulls dipping under the water to find food. I still feel the small waves creep under my feet and erase the footsteps that I made. These images twirl around in my mind, and I quickly feel asleep.
