We went to the beach to get wind in our hair to stand on the sand and simply to stare.
To let the surf tickle toes and dampen our clothes as we played ‘run away’ from the wavelets at play.
We went to the beach to climb on the rocks find cool shallow pools where we’d take of our socks,
and peer in the waters to see what we might find that the waves of the sea, had last left behind.
We went to the beach to find coloured shells the kind that when placed to our ears make the sound of the ocean appear.
