Summer Vacation is the best period of life
When school closes down in summer vacation everyone makes a plan to go somewhere. I had also planned to do a lot of things in summer vacation for two months. Due to a hectic life and busy schedule of school, it was not easy for any student to go anywhere. So summer vacation is the only time that converts our dreams into reality as well as gives a chance to make fun and frolic with friends and family.
Last years in summer vacations my parents decided to visit Shimla. We left Jammu for Srinagar by bus at 8.am on the roads there were zigzag. My brother was also with us. He feely giddy and began to vomit on the way. We reached Shimla at 4 pm.
Oppressed by the heat of summer we decided to stay in Shimla for one month. We planned to stay in a big bungalow that is located over the top of the hill. It had charming scenery all around. We stayed in Shimla for one month. Shimla is a very popular hill station in Himachal Pradesh. In summer it attracts thousands of people. It a wonderful retreat in the lap of nature. We were at a height of 6000 ft above sea level. There was a chilly touch in the air even in mid-June. We were thrilled to see mountains and the tall trees. In the evening we used to visit Mall every day. Hundreds of hotels oversee the road and the lake. The scenic beauty of nature is breathtaking we stayed there for about one month. We also enjoyed horse riding there.
At night, we attended the tourist program in Shimla. We studied the traditions of the hill folk. We also purchased some things from there.Shimla is very famous for its handicrafts. We bought wooden toys, saris, and carpets; I bought a shawl for my grandmother.
We also enjoy boating there in the lake. It was fine afternoon when we enjoyed boating. There were some clouds in the sky. Flowers of various kinds were making the air fragment. The scenery was very charming. We hired a boat. All of us entered the boat.
The boatman took up the oar. He dipped the oar in the water and pulled backward and the boat moved forward. Then some of us sang a song. It was a time to make a lot of fun and frolic with friends. We also enjoyed good food. We had mangoes, apples, and sweets. We ate all that we had.
After three hours we started back we enjoyed the sunset scene which was very attractive. It was getting dark. The boatman rowed fast. We reached the bank then we paid the boatman. From the bank, it seemed as if the stars and the moon were lying in the lake, actually it was the reflection of the moon and the stars. We enjoyed this journey very much. We returned home happily. It was our first experience. It was a fine day and everything went on pleasantly. I can never forget this memorable journey with my family.
After returned my home I visited all my friends home because my friends always pestering me to visit their homes in summer vacation only I got an opportunity to visit their homes and played together. We made a lot of fun and frolic together. We all like cricket so we organized cricket game daily in the evening in summer holidays. I daily spent some time in the evening in summer vacation to complete my homework. So summer vacation is the best part of our life.
In summer vacation, when I returned from Shimla, it was a cool and pleasant day in May. Some of the class fellows of my school decided to go on a picnic to the pinjore gardens. I readily agreed to join them. We were going to have great fun.
We were a party of fifteen we started early in the morning, on our bicycles. We carried our food with us. Sahil had a new transistor with him. I carried my camera for taking snaps. It took us about two hours to reach the spot.
As we entered the famous Mughal Gardens we were greeted by lovely flowers. W mountains playing merrily. Water flowed producing sweet music. The lush green grassy lawns looked beautiful. The trees were laden with fruit.
We selected a shady corner. We spread out a mat there. All of us were in a gay mood. While some played cards others switched on the transistor. We took snaps in different poses.
After strolling around the place we came back to take food. Then we lay down on the green grass. At 4 p.m we prepared tea and pakoras. It was indeed nice fun. We packed our timings at 5:30 p.m and returned home. We really enjoyed them.
