A beach on a sunny day Rehearsal.
I woke up one morning feeling very hot. Opening my eyes I noticed the intense glow around the room. The sun was shining through a crack in the curtain.
My room was normally like a dark and dusty old street, but now it’s a lovely sunny and warm room. I was suddenly happy in myself because I thought this might be a long sandy beach day. I yawned out of my bed and dressed in shorts and a brightly colored T-shirt.
I quickly ate some cereal and toast, took a drink of cold, fresh orange juice, picked up my beach towel, and headed for the beach.
On the way, I could really feel the sea wind and the sun shining on me as if the sun knew me and brought me closer and closer to the golden sands. As I got closer to the beach I could hear the faint voices of the children crying as if they were in pain, but they were in no pain, just having fun running and enjoying the sun.
The closer I got to the beach, I could hear the sounds of people’s laughter, the sound of the waves hitting the shore, the cry of seagulls as they fluttered and launched themselves into the water, ducking and diving for fish. Everyone enjoyed the sun and relaxed on the fine sand.
When I got to the beach, the fine sand spread out before me and gave me a feeling of freedom when I saw the great expanse of sand. Along the stretch of sand were colorful wind curtains that protected people from the sea breeze. On the horizon I could see sailboats with white sails running around the course set by orange buoys.
Even though it was extremely sunny, I could feel the wind rushing through me like a drill, which was strangely refreshing. I couldn’t help but smile as I thought about the day that was coming up on the beach. As I looked around I thought that the beach is like a great playing field since most people were playing some kind of game. Some played tennis, children cricket, soccer balls were kicked, rugby balls were thrown and caught, others rowed in the sea or played catch in the water, or simply swam.
I couldn’t wait to join. With all the sounds of the activities taking place it was like a great beach sounds orchestra. I have never heard so many different sounds together in my life, but surprisingly the noise was music to my ears. There were boats pounding around, the wind howling through the windbreaks, children screaming and laughing, babies crying and all the time the sound of the sea in the background.
I was excited and wanted to really join in and enjoy every minute of my day at the beach. I sailed to the other end of the beach where there is a gift shop called “The Holidaymakers” that sold the coolest items like shells, fossils, and fridge magnets. An ice cream stand was located at the other end of the beach. Children and adults ate delicious strawberry, vanilla or chocolate ice creams with flakes stuck to the side.
It was the most beautiful view in the world. There was so much to see and do. I wandered down the beach to where you could rent windsurfers, surfboards and sailboats. After seeing the activities, I searched the nearby store.
The store was large and bright, with the sun reflecting off the mirrors for sale on the walls.
The store was very expensive and had to earn a lot of money in the summer months. Next to the store was a ½ cafeteria with a front terrace overlooking the beach. People enjoyed the sun sitting at the tables overlooking the people lying under umbrellas and windbreakers.
It was one of the best cafés in the surroundings, so everyone came here. The food was brilliant and the service was first class like what you get in a London restaurant. Everyone on the beach was friendly, making the atmosphere feel almost like a carnival. 5 o’clock was approaching and people began to leave the beach.
People were packing their belongings. The windbreaks were being removed and the picnics saved. People were leaving after a relaxing time on the lovely, sunny, sandy beach. The children were eating the last of their lunch and ice cream.
After a long day at the beach it was like a mine bomb factory since all the children had dug holes everywhere, so they had to be dodged. The next time I go to the beach I will go windsurfing because it seems very exciting to slide through the water in the waves driven solely by the wind. It will take me some time to get used to it, but I’ll take it easy. Now most of the people are gone and the wind has died down there, there is deadly silence around them.
All you could hear were the waves breaking on the sand. It felt really relaxing. The wind had calmed down and slept until the next morning. That’s when everyone gets up and goes to the beach again.
Then it is the normal routine for the sun and the wind. All sunscreen is going to run out in the gift shop!
