Beach Day

Just a few minutes longer? P-l-e-e-e-e-a-s-e?

The sun - slowly lowering in the distant sky..the salty water  - glistening.

The abandoned sandcastles dotting the sand. Princesses dreaming of heroic rescues. Princes waiting. Dragons scheming.

The sound of seagulls circling.

The slow rhythmic beat of the ocean's day. The sun - on this longest day of the year- lingering.

Just a few minutes longer? Can't we stay?
