Narrative paragraph - the smokey smell of the fire mixed with the sweet smell of the orange reminded me of my vacation to the Florida keys

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

The other night I was sitting by my fireplace eating a naval orange, and the smokey smell of the fire mixed with the sweet smell of the orange reminded me of my vacation to the Florida keys over winter break.
