Vacation's End

When it's time to leave you always have your memories

Such joy our time at the shore

Many things we did each day 

Making sandcastles on the beach

Swimming in the bay 


We rode a pontoon boat 

Fantasy Island such a joy 

The Ferris wheel and lots of games

The little one loved winning a toy 


The locals are all so pleasant 

A guided ghost tour one night 

We learned of Jaws and haunts 

Trembled from all those sights 


A museum full of ocean treasure 

Disasters of the island on display 

Rumrunners and scuba gear 

Artifacts from depths unknown


Many memories were made 

Can’t wait until next year 

But now our week must end 

From this place, we hold so dear


We love summers on the island 

We hate to say farewell 

To sand and sun and all the fun 

Our wonderful escape was swell
