Alone on the beach
What a beautiful day
The children on break
They run and they play.

Parents supervising
Lifeguard close by
The children wading
The pull of the tide.

Cold drinks on ice
Beach towels and lotion
Sandy feet
Running into the ocean.

Surfboards and tubes
Paddleboards and more
Surfers paddling
Close to the shore.

Chips and dogs
Building sand castles
Fisherman wading
Untangling tackle.

Come down to the beach
Set up your chairs
It wonโ€™t be long
We all will be there.
