Any Day at the Beach ~ 150 words
I remember this day at the beach. The sun was shining there weren’t any cloud s in the sky. The waves were high and the sand was combed. I swam out to sea while children on the beach frolicked in and out of the water. I heard their giggles mixed with the crashing waves and calling seagulls. A bunch of kids feed bread to them. I love to watch those birds hover in the air. Sometimes a kid would toss a piece up and a seagull would dive for it.
I played a game of volley ball. Of course my team lost. We were all drunk on beer.
On the boardwalk I dusted the sand off, then sat on a bench and opened a pack of graham crackers. I was about to put one in my mouth when this damn seagull snatched from my hand and flew out to sea.
