Over Easter break, Cathedral Prep students traveled to many different exotic, beautiful vacation spots. Some students traveled away from the states to the Dominican Republic and the Virgin Islands, while many other students visited different places throughout the sunshine state of Florida.
1. South Beach, Florida
Senior Patrick McCormick traveled to South Beach, Florida, for a week long family vacation. When asked how he liked his vacation he said, “I enjoyed spending time with my family for the holiday. It was great being able to get our entire family together, but even better to be able to celebrate The Risen Lord in the beautiful weather on the beaches of Miami, Florida, with them.”
2. Captiva, Florida
Seniors Jack Bloomstine and Jack Kloecker, and sophomore Peter Bloomstine traveled with the Bloomstine family to Captiva Island in Florida. The Bloomstines stayed for several days, and both Jack and Jack stated they enjoyed their getaway. While in Captiva, they enjoyed relaxing on the beautiful beaches, hanging in poolside cabanas, playing golf on the 9 hole par 3 course, and meeting new friends. Jack Bloomstine said, “My family has been celebrating Easter in Captiva for awhile and I have enjoyed every visit to the great vacation spot.”
3. Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
Prep juniors, Josh Kurczewski, Joe Sala, and Tim Evans, traveled to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. I caught up with Josh to ask him about his vacation and he commented on his vacation saying, “words can’t describe how much of a good time it was, from chilling out on the beach to meeting people from all over the world.” All three guys agreed they would love to return to Punta Cana in the future.
4. St. Croix & St. Thomas, United States Virgin Islands
My parents, my brother Billy, and I traveled to the United States Virgin Islands for a 12-day getaway. We stayed with a relative on St. Croix for the first four days and then flew over on a sea plane to St. Thomas for four days and returned to St. Croix for the final four days. It was an amazing vacation and to experience life in a different part of the world is unique and enjoyable. I hope to return to the islands in the near future, and I recommend that everyone vacation there at least once in their lives. St. Croix and St. Thomas are incredible places to vacation.
