Best Vacation Ever

The best vacation that I ever had, was when I hitchhiked to Miami, Florida; now, I know it was dangerous and bad, but the trip was full of joyful euphoria ! I met wonderful people on the way, and I stopped for a while in many quaint places; for the first time I felt blue ocean spray, soon, I was as brown as all the other faces ! On arrival I rented a cheap room, so what if all my neighbors were mostly old folk; I was like a sweet beach flower in bloom, but something happened to me next that was no joke ! For I had stayed too long for a tourist, and got arrested and deported by the court; given a warning and slap on the wrist, with free air fare home and a drive to the airport ! ______________________ January 18, 2022 Poetry/Rhyme/Best Vacation Ever Copyright Protected, ID 01-1422-649-18 All Rights Reserved, 2022, Constance La France Written for the Premier contest, My Favorite Vacation in Rhyme sponsor, L MILTON HANKINS, Judged 02/04/2022 Fourth Place

Congratulations, Constance, on your high placement in my vacation contest. I'm off to Florida next week, but they won't deport me back to Kentucky. LOL I'll bet you were really scared at the time!
