Walking on the Beach
When I walk on the sand on the beach, I love to walk in the footprints of other people. It is such fun. Sometimes I have to jump to reach the next step, and sometimes I tread in the footprints of small children so that I am almost walking on tiptoes.
I enjoy writing messages on wet sand. You can write anything and then watch the waves cover the writing many times till it's all gone.
I love collecting shells and small pieces of coral. I fill up my hat with the collection and show my friends the things that I find when I go to school.
It's fun to sit with closed eyes and just listen - to the sea,
the shouting people, the gulls, and distant sounds. You feel as if you are floating in the sky.
But the thing I like most is pretending I am alone, having the freedom to walk wherever I want, yet knowing, all the time, that my whole family is sitting close by under their red and green umbrella.
Write about a visit to the beach or times that you like to be alone.
