Our malibu vacation

  1. 1. Our Malibu Vacation Produced by: Brenna Jennings Michelle Holcomb Nour Hussein
  2. 2. Introduction Ready for the adventure of a life time? Follow us to the beautiful coast of California, to Malibu! You will experience the thrills of the sea, breathe in the fresh Californian air, and ride along on the bumpy trails of the Californian mountain ranges.
  3. 3. Our Many Days In Paradise • Day1 • Day 4 • Day 2 • Day 5 • Day 3 • Day 6
  4. 4. Day 1 Anticipation filled our thoughts as we took in the sight of our new home, Malibu, California. The airplane attendant helped us lug our suitcases into the back of our rental car. I slipped into the driver’s seat and had Brenna direct the way to our hotel, as Michelle napped in the back. Hours later, we arrived at our two bedroom hotel and checked in. Michelle took to the couch immediately, which relieved Brenna and me. The view outside our window was breathtaking, as we saw the famous Malibu Pier and couldn’t wait for our scheduled day there. We began unloading our luggage into our temporary home to make it seem more welcome. After our surprisingly exhausting afternoon everyone went for a long, deep snooze.
  5. 5. Day 1 As we awoke from our restful nap, we all prepared for our sight-seeing stroll around Malibu. First, we headed toward the downtown part of Malibu, where many pedestrians shop and converse. I parked our car near a car meter for half an hour so we could walk around the shopping centers and see what their merchandise was. We all ended up buying swimsuits for our day at the beach. Our stomachs started to growl and we knew just the place to eat: Dukes Malibu. We heard it was a spectacular venue. When we got there we had an option of dining inside or out on the balcony. It was a beautiful evening out and the breeze made the weather even greater. Michelle ordered Clay Pot Chicken, Brenna ordered Spicy Sugar Cane Shrimp and I, Sashimi. The foods at Dukes Malibu where known to represent Malibu’s essence. Back at the hotel, I slept with this picture, of togetherness and family, in my head.
  6. 6. Day 2 It was an early morning at our hotel. We had to prepare for the long trek ahead of us. We made the sandwiches. Nour had bought ingredients for them and we packed plenty of water before we headed to the mountains. When we arrived at the toll booth, and paid, we had to find a parking spot. Once we did, we pulled on our packs and started toward the base of the mountains to start our hike. At first it was pretty easy going, but as the altitude and slope increased, our effort did too. We took a break to rehydrate ourselves and to catch our breath at a beautiful cliff overlooking the other mountains. We decided to take pictures of nature and ourselves here, and then move on.
  7. 7. Day 2 Finally we arrived at the reflecting pools and waterfalls. There we unpacked our sandwiches and blankets to lie on. It was so refreshing after the two hour hike. The sun was sliding down the sky, so we packed up and started back down the mountain. Dinner was reserved at Thai Sky and I was pretty excited. When we walked in the smell of curry and spices invaded my mouth and nose. I ordered Green Curry with Chicken and had Mango Sticky Rice for dessert. It was the sweetest I have ever had, and the perfect way to end the day!
  8. 8. Day 3 As we rose, along with the sun, we quickly shoved on our clothes. The day had come that I was anticipating the most. We rushed in the car, as Nour slammed on the gas, for we knew the Double Dolphin was awaiting our arrival. The Double Dolphin is a ship in which multiple passengers join together to receive the amazing joy of watching whales, sea lions, and dolphins in their natural habitat. The entire day was going to be filled with the excitement and thrills of the sea. An hour after we had left the hotel, we were ushered onto the ship, where our brunch was already on the table waiting for us. The brunch menu included an incredible ham and cheese omelet. After our plates were clean, and we were nice and full, we took our seats and were ready for the show to start. The second we sat down, an explosion of dolphins flew out of the water. As they gracefully fell back into the water, we were almost drowned with salty sea water. As we kept traveling, farther and farther away from our temporary home, we had the most amazing view of a great humpback whale.
  9. 9. Day 3 We were starting to get hungry so the crew decided it was time for dinner. The meal was an amazing grilled chicken. When we were done with our meal, our time had come to an end. Just as we were sailing back to our port, there was a gorgeous sunset right behind us. The sun was reflecting off the water as if saying “goodbye.” Right as we docked, we saw a gorgeous sea lion perched on a rock. Let me tell you, this day could not be replicated. The ride back to our hotel was long and hard. The ride on our ship was incredible, but somewhere between the sunburns and stopping for what seemed like hours for gas, it was miserable. Either way, it was a great day and we hope to do it again soon.
  10. 10. Day 4 What a better way to spend our 4th day in Malibu than to visit the Malibu Pier. The sun was up and welcoming that day. As we dug our feet into the warm sand and let the suns heat bathe on our faces, we got lost in our own thoughts. Suddenly the salty scent of the ocean breeze, reminded me of where I was standing. I caught up with Brenna and Michelle on our quest to find an accessible spot. Michelle located a great open layout to set up our beach towels and umbrella. I dabbed sunscreen onto myself before I got into the lapping waves of the ocean. We decided on getting ourselves a mini-tan and some food before we headed into the warm Malibu water. Michelle had prepared us tuna sandwiches and a variety of chips. Before we ended up with a sunburn, Brenna, Michelle and I immediately start sprinting toward the water and swam as far as we could. Brenna, the most competitive one, decided to swim out deeper than the rest of us near the shark infested waters. Minutes later, Brenna came wailing back, trying to convince us that a shark had run against her leg. Michelle and I cracked up at the sound of it and headed back onto the shore with Brenna trailing behind.
  11. 11. Day 4 As we step off the pier, our mouths’ shapes dropped into a perfect “O”. The whimsical theme had us all in awe. Our first step was to find a food shack. Soon enough our stomachs were going to cause an earthquake. A fellow pedestrian showed us a quick and easy hamburger joint nearby. We ordered three Malibu style burgers with our choice of condiments. After we devoured our enormous burgers, we decided to take a stroll on the pier and play some games here and there. I ended up with the most souvenirs from all the ball games we had attempted today, but I decided to give some to Brenna and Michelle. The day was coming to a close, so we headed on our last walk today on the beach. As we were doing so I spotted 3 dolphins headed out of the water together. Brenna, Michelle and I all looked at one another and knew that we would never forget this beautiful day.
  12. 12. Day 5 The sun perched on the fluffs of clouds, tinting the sky all shades of pink, yellow, and orange. The ground smelled of grass, work, and manure. We practically ran to the group of horses that we would pick from to ride the trails on. Nour picked a hazelnut colored horse, Brenna the white one with black speckles, and I picked a black one with a white diamond on its head. They seemed to have wonderful personalities. Then we were finally off! The rhythmic trot of the horses was therapeutic. Our trainer told us our balance was pretty good for beginners, while everyone was swooning over how beautiful our horses were. They whinnied and snuffed in response. Our day was speeding by much too quickly, and soon our trainer made the comment that it was getting late, and how we should start heading back. We all gave each other a look that said that could NOT have been 2 hours! But we grudgingly followed anyway because our stomachs are complaining loudly.
  13. 13. Day 5 Lunch was at Neptune’s Net. My turkey sandwich with potato salad was refreshing. We decided to have a beach afternoon, which had to be the best decision we could have made. For part of the time we lay out in the sun, the other part we played some beach volley ball (which none of us were very good at) and snorkeled. We also found some shells and things. About 5:30, we decided we should head in to get ready for dinner at the Sunset Restaurant. The view from this place was amazing! My salad was crisp and very flavorful. When we had all finished, we headed over to the window to watch for whales, though I doubted we would see them. Much to my surprise, just as the sun rested on the water’s surface, a lone whale leapt out of the water and flipped to show his stomach right before he disappeared into the water with a splash. This night’s sleep was peaceful.
  14. 14. Day 6 As we wearily got out of bed, dreading that this day would come, we started to pack. Our flight did not leave until 2 p.m., so we still had a little while before we left. As we finished packing we shoved all of our luggage into our car and we headed for the beach for the last time. We pulled into the parking lot of the beach, grabbed our chairs and headed down for the waves. The noise of the birds and the smell of the salty water were memories that all three of us would never forget. After a while of just relaxing, we went and splashed around in the ocean. Somehow we managed to not get our hair wet, no matter how much we scooted about.
  15. 15. Day 6 When the time had come, we packed up our things and headed for our ride home. It was 12 p.m. and was time to return our car to the rental shop. After our return, we slugged into the airport, checked our bags, and went through security to go to the food court to eat. After our delicious meal of Wendy’s, we marched down to our gate and claimed our seats until our group to load the plane was called. We had our tickets checked and went to shake the pilots hand before taking our seats. As the light came on for us to put our seatbelts on, we took one last look out at Malibu before we returned to real life. Right before we took off, we all said that we would return again someday. The stewardess came around time after time and offered multiple goodies, which were all good, but none as good as any of the food we had in Malibu. Those were some of the best experiences of our lives and we would never forget any of them.
