My best summer holiday ever

My summer had been like that of many teenagers: long days spent watching
TV, talking on the phone, and going to the beach. But during the last few days
of August, I went to an island in Maine with a group of friends. Maine is a state
in the north-eastern corner of the USA, on the Atlantic coast. It has many hills
and forests.
We arrived on the 95-acre* island, and I was impressed with the beauty and
serenity I saw and felt. There were only eight buildings on the island, all
devoted to studying the islands plants and animals.
While there, we went on a whale watch. We also saw dolphins and my heart
melted when I saw a mother dolphin swimming with her small calf.
Our group explored the whole island, alone and in groups and I took many
pictures of the beautiful plants and animals. I liked to go exploring alone; I felt
at one with nature. I would listen to the birds, and just think.
After that, we had to attend a lecture about birds. How boring, we all thought,
but during the lecture I realized that I was enjoying learning about those
songbirds that lived on the island.
That time in Maine has changed my outlook on nature. During the ride home, I
realized that if we dont do something to save the land, the clean water, and
the animals, they wont be around much longer. I dont think that Id want to
live in a world without those things.
