A Morning at the Tulip Farm

It’s a Wednesday morning, but it’s not just a normal Wednesday morning–there was no school. When a high schooler has a day off, it’s almost an unwritten rule to make plans to go do something. Some think that we could use that time to get work done, but that seems pretty weird to me. So as for a plan, my friends Mike and Jacob (pictured) and I went to the Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival which is located about 45 minutes away from our house. It ended up taking a little less time since my friend Mike likes to go fast. That’s evident from his speeding ticket last summer. That’s way beside the point, though.

We left at 5:30 AM in hopes of making the 6:17 AM sunrise. We made it in time, but as time went on, we were left wondering where the sun was.

“Why the hell did we get up so early?” Jacob asked.

I was thinking the same thing since I was hoping to get an ever so popular sunrise picture with tulips in the foreground, but I decided to make more with less.

Turns out, the clouds were covering the sun and we missed out on a great sunrise. Because of this, I definitely plan on going again. It was a fun experience because really, how often do you go to a tulip farm?
