Chapter Teaser

Standard

Hello Villagers,

I got a little sidetracked and ended up starting another chapter because all these idea’s began flowing like rushing current. below is an example of one of my chapters. Again I would enjoy some feedback.

Julia shivered as the crisp air massaged the back of her neck, finding her way to the beach; she kicked off her flip flops and sank her feet into the ice cold water. Holding her breath, her hand’s shivered. She pushed out the air from her lungs, quivering with each release, and began walking deeper into the water. She felt alive for the first time in a long time, she missed the ocean. She and Sean vacationed to The Hampton’s every summer to get away, and be inspired. She was an artist; a painter. The ocean was where something buried inside her came to life. Staring out and down at the water, she was now waist deep. Her limbs numb not noticing the biting temperature of the water anymore. Breathing in, the smell of salt and brine tickled the inside of her nose; she could taste the salt at the tip of her tongue with hints of sea weed. Listening to the low waves pushing onto the beach, she wiggled her toes deep into the sand feeling the grains dancing around her legs.

The summer of adventure and procrastination

Wow, I Can’t believe it’s been so long since I’ve wrote anything, I haven’t even looked at this blog since June 25th (Sorry) or touched my Ihavenoideawhatimwritingabout novel/short story to be!-I’m such a procrastinator, shame on me! But life has been good; actually it’s been pretty great! A lot of work but still some fun in the sun squeezed in here and there.

I’m interested in knowing what all of you lovely bloggers who still follow are have been doing this summer?  Vacationing in a faraway land? A stay-cation? Trying something new?  Bungee jumping? Maybe exploring the world of food and improving your cooking skills? Jumping out of your comfort zone? I want to hear all about it villagers.

To begin, my vacation started May 30th, a road trip with my better half to the Halifax, Nova Scotia airport…10597_10151687045080030_859895448_n

It was fantastic, we had a beautiful room enjoyed an amazing meal and had a nice dip in the hot tub at Hilton Garden Inn Halifax Airport. The staffs was more than accommodating and they served up one of the best battered fish dishes I’ve tasted, and what a bang for your buck! as you can see below!if you’re ever in the area this is a must stay hotel (just don’t get the nachos) Nova Scotia is not known for their Nachos! 390851_10151687935680030_446834185_n

Then on to the morning, we did a park and fly and they shuttled us over to the airport( very awesome) I don’t know about you but I LOVE FLYING! it’s such a thrill the take off is the bed part, what a powerful feeling, now the landing I could argue, I’m just unlucky that my ears only plug when the planes getting ready to land and they don’t unplug till I don’t know, 2 hours later!? Like come on…But It was amazing nonetheless.223099_10151689554440030_693056997_n
The second part of our vacation began we were on the plane and very anxious to to land in the beautiful St.Johns Newfoundland to visit my loves family whom we haven’t see in about 2 years!  His brother lives in St.Johns we stayed with him and his girlfriend for a few amazing days of  sight seeing and food, let me just say OH-MY-GOD the food; just insane. I was full of excitement, adventure and FOOD the whole vacation.

When I look back on the vacation I feel so blessed to have these beautiful (crazy) people in my life to call MY family and open up there homes to us. I could not thank them enough for the time spent!  and who ever is reading this if you have not been to Newfoundland it is time to pack your bags and GET THERE! just do it. I can not say enough beautiful things about this “Rock”. I even saw a whale at Cape spear and the biggest waves I have ever seen, the whale was a little far away to get any photos but I was super excited, a Tee bit disappointed i didn’t see a puffin or iceberg but that will be another adventure!

We also bused it to Grand-falls/Windsor to visit Dave’s mom. Grand falls in a small town, we just relaxed, enjoyed some good food, and caught up on TV shows (you need to have some relaxing days to not burn out on your vacation) we were sad to leave, but it was nice to get home with all the great memories, vacation always goes by so fast.

My(not-so) baby sister also Graduated this summer from high school, I’m so proud of her. I shed a few tears watching her walk out in her graduation gown and I wish her all the best in her journey; full of life lessons.

While I was home for her graduation, a couple of my girlfriends I haven`t seen in lets just say FOREVER were in town (just the icing on the cake) we met up at the beach for an amazing bonfire, some much needed catching up and girl time; I love them so much.

Well fellow bloggers I`m beat and off to bed Night night, I posted a few photos below ENJOY!
