Girls in bikinis, how gorgeous they look
Kids ice pops melting, dripping on the sand 
People sat in deck chairs reading a book
Happy young couples walking hand in hand.

Waves gently lapping upon the sea shore
Dads building sand castles, show how its done 
Moms creaming the kids so they are not sore
Grandparents watch their families  have fun.

People on smart phones capture memories 
Azure skies, swimming and of course the sun
Bright parasols flapping with the sea breeze
Some joggers on the sands out for a run.

Get down to the beach along side the sea
Create for yourself some fond memories.

Hello Tom, yes I do have memories of the beach. For me it was struggling with the lawn chair to relax on the sand. Walking along the water hand in hand with my husband. Watching some dogs go into the water.Building sand castles from the sand. Have a nice day my friend.

Sounds like a perfect summer day, Tom. Do you live near the sea? We are 12 hours away from the ocean, so rarely get to go.
