In no time at all we shook off the travel heebie jeebies
and settled in with our son and his family.
The grandkids and their mom and dad were more than glad
to show us the
way to enjoy a day. California
We were soon hauling all the stuff needed---
--for a day at the beach.
(Insert the sound of rolling waves, the call of sea birds plus a little “Surfin’ U.S.A.”)
If you’re familiar with “Calvin and Hobbes” you’ll understand this boy.
His dark-haired sister danced in the waves. (“Dance, Dance, Dance”)
She’s the gymnast in the family and is looking forward
to watching that part of the Summer Olympics.
The oldest sister is a fish like her dad. She took on the waves and laughed at them.
Grandpa enjoyed the sunny day and the view that came with it. (“Help Me Rhonda!”)
They built an awesome sand castle.
It was just high enough on the beach to survive the incoming tide.
(more wave sounds and “Good Vibrations”)
When the tide went out there were tide pools to explore.
(“Fun, Fun, Fun”)
