A beach on a sunny day

Extracts from this document...


A beach on a sunny day James Weir I woke up one morning feeling very hot. As I opened my eyes I noticed the intense brightness all around the room. The sun was gleaming through a crack in the curtain. My bedroom was usually like an old dusty dark street, but now it is a lovely bright and warm sunny room. I suddenly felt happy in my self, because I thought this could be a day spent at the long sandy beach. I got out of my bed yawning and got dressed into some shorts and a brightly coloured tee-shirt. I quickly ate some cereal and toast, had a drink of cold fresh orange juice, picked up my beach towel and set off to the beach. On the way, I could really feel the wind from the sea and the sun shining down on me as if the sun knew me and was drawing me closer and closer to the golden sands. As I drew even closer to the beach I could hear the faint children's voices wailing as if in pain, but they were not in pain, they were just having fun running around and enjoying the sunshine. ...read more.


As I looked around I thought to my- self that the beach is like one big playing field as most people were playing games of some sort. Some were playing tennis, children were playing cricket, footballs were being kicked, rugby balls were being thrown and caught, other people were paddling in the sea or playing catch in the water or just swimming about. I couldn't wait to join in. With all the sounds of the activities taking place it was like one huge orchestra of beach sounds. I had never heard so many different sounds together in my life, but surprisingly the noise was music to my ears. There were boats banging around, wind howling through the windbreaks, children shouting and laughing, babies crying and all the time the sound of the sea in the background. I felt excited and wanted to join in and really enjoy every minute of my day on the beach. I sauntered to the other end of the beach where there is a gift shop called The Holidaymakers shop which sold the coolest items ever like shells, fossils and fridge magnets. ...read more.


People were packing up their belongings. Windbreaks were being taken down and picnics put away. People were leaving after a relaxing time at the lovely, sandy sunny beach. The children were eating the last of their lunch and ice creams. After a long day on the beach it was like a mine bomb factory as all the children had dug holes everywhere so you had to dodge them. I decided that the next time I go the beach I am going to go windsurfing because it looks so exciting to glide along the water on the surf solely propelled by the wind. It will take some time to get used to it, but I will get the hang of it. Now most people had gone and the wind had died down there was a deadly hush all around. All you could hear were the waves breaking on the sand. It felt really relaxing. The wind had calmed down and had gone to sleep until the next morning. That is when everyone gets up and goes to the beach again. Then it's the normal routine for the sun and the wind. All the sun cream is going to be sold out at the gift shop! ...read more.
