It’s July and the holidays are here, time to visit the seaside where there is always something exciting to do. As soon as they get there, Alfie wants to dash into the waves with Dad and try out his swimming. Annie Rose prefers to splash about in the shallow water with Mum.
The seaside means picnics, of course, and afterwards you can build a sandcastle with battlements and a moat all around and watch the water coming in around it until only the tallest tower is left. Then it is all washed away.
When the tide is out Alfie’s favourite thing is exploring rockpools, looking for shells and stones and interesting seaweed. You can see all kinds of creatures there. A rockpool is a whole world, full of life.
Once Alfie took his own special stone, Bonting, to the seaside and nearly lost him. But he turned up safely after all, thank goodness.
