Great memories last a lifetime My favourite and vivid recollections are the summers of my early childhood During the summer holidays I would spend time at my grandparents house a house full of happiness and joyTheir house was a two terrace house the garden lush with petunia pansies and bright pink roses Flower boxes adorned window sills and the sweet scent of coronations drifted in the air The aroma of homemade bread wafted from the brightly painted kitchen and neighbours chatted cheerfully about local characters a custom now long forgotten On weekends my aunts paid a visit and we played card games and cycled to local tourist attractions My favoured place was Ross castle where we fed swans and ducklings with scraps of stale bread A pleasant neighbour gave us a boat trip on the tranquil water and later we had lunch on a luscious green grassWhen I was eight my mother proudly announced we were holidaying in Ballybunnion a seaside resort in Kerry Although I was sad that I couldnt stay at my grandparents house but thrilled that Id sleep in a caravan I remember the birds tweeting when I got up six to get ready for my trip the sun shone brightly outside my bedroom window as I dressed in haste We ate breakfast promptly everyone anxious to catch the bus to BallybunnionI recall a caretaker showing us to our caravan how my heart leaped with joy when I saw it windows glistened in the summer sun I dropped my suitcase on my bunk bed change quickly and persuaded my sister to bring me to the ocean edge We took our towels and sunglasses down to the beach and as we walked along the golden sand felt hot beneath our bare feet I collected gorgeous shiny shells that washed ashore in a little red sand bucket We reached the sea and I dipped my toe in the water
