Let’s go to the beach
It’s a perfect sunny day
Leave your cares behind
I will gladly lead the way.

The seagulls and the osprey
Found at the water’s edge
Often nestled in the dunes
Now, seen flying overhead.

The children building castles
So many grains of sand
Washed back into the ocean
A part of nature’s plan.

The ghost crabs scurry by
Move about with ease and purpose
They quickly run, they hide
Disappear below the surface.

The sun so hot above us
Sunscreen to block the rays
Getting under the umbrella
A needed respite in the shade.

A sandwich, a cup of lemonade
Some chips, pretzels, and cookies
A perfect day to spend with friends
So happy you are with me.
