CHAPTER 1

I'm going in the car. I am so excited! I'm going on a trip to the beach. (Whatever that is!)

Here I am walking. Walking on the wet sand. The sand is soggy, sticky and gooey. Eew!

It looks like I am prancing.

Prancing in the water.

The truth is I really don't want to put my feet down in the water.

The water is salty, wet and cold. Eew!

The waves.

The waves are coming at me.

The waves are scary, noisy and big. Eew!

The Ocean.

Sail boats are floating.

And motorboats are roaring.

All very exciting in the wind.
