There’s a holiday next week and I can’t decide what to do. I have a lot of work to do at home, and this would be a good chance to do it. But I’d rather not spend the holiday that way. I can work at home all the rest of the year. Там в отпуск на следующей неделе и я не могу решить, что делать. У меня есть много работы, чтобы сделать у себя дома, и это будет хороший шанс, чтобы сделать это. Но я бы не хотел провести свой отпуск таким образом. Я могу работать дома все остальное время года.

Last year I went north to the mountains. Everything was beautiful, but it is too cold this time of year. And it’s really too far to go for a short holiday. В прошлом году я отправился на север, в горы. Все было красиво, но это слишком холодно в это время года. И это действительно слишком далеко, чтобы пойти на короткий отпуск.

I have decided that this is not a good time to go to the mountains. But I do want to go someplace. Я решил, что это не хорошее время, чтобы отправиться в горы. Но я хочу пойти куда-нибудь.

Perhaps this would be a good chance to go to the beach. I like to go for walks along the seashore in the warm sunshine and watch the water. It’s only about eighty miles and I could get there in about two hours. Возможно, это будет хороший шанс пойти на пляж. Мне нравится гулять по берегу моря на солнышке и смотреть на воду. Это всего лишь около восьмидесяти миль, и я мог попасть в около двух часов.

After thinking it over, I’m sure that this is a better time for the seashore than the mountains. I guess I’ll plan to go to the beach next week. Обдумав это, я уверен, что это лучшее время для берегу моря, чем горы. Я думаю, я планирую пойти на пляж на следующей неделе.

After giving it some more thought, I guess it wasn’t really too cold last year, and perhaps it might rain at the seashore and then I wouldn’t enjoy it at all. После предоставления его еще немного подумав, я предполагаю, что это было на самом деле не слишком холодно в прошлом году, и, возможно, мог бы идти дождь на берегу моря, и то я бы не наслаждался им вообще.

The mountains are only 300 miles away. I think I’ll write Jim right now and tell him I’ll go with him. Горы находятся всего в 300 километрах. Я думаю, что я напишу Джим прямо сейчас, и скажите, что я пойду с ним.
