Podcast #7 A Day at the Beach

Published in the category General Practice, Special Activities

I went with my two children to the beach last week. It was not too crowded there. I was able to park right by the beach. We set up our umbrella and opened our chairs. The sun was extremely strong. The kids ran straight into the water. I watched them from the beach. The waves were not too rough. I had told the kids not to stay in too long. Of course, I had to wave to them to come out. We got lunch at a cafe right on the beach. Then the three of us read for a while.

After that we took a walk along the edge of the water. The rest of the afternoon we divided between the water and taking it easy under the umbrella. By 5 o’clock we had more than enough sun. The kids both fell asleep on the ride home.
