Bethell's beach is a very special place to my family because Gigi's Nana used to own the beach. Everyone in our family is a Bethell.
When we were getting ready to go to the beach we got everything except my bucket and spade. We always forget my bucket and spade when we go to the beach. So when we went to Mitre 10 to get a new umbrella, we bought a spade. We didn't buy the bucket because they cost too much.
Then we went to the lake. It was a lake because the other river I am used to swimming in had germs in it, millions of germs in it.
It took a long time to walk over the sand dunes, but it would have taken even longer if I had kept stopping. At the top of the hilly sand dune, I climbed on my boogie board and mummy pulled me down. The sand was really hot because it is black sand.
The first thing that I did at the lake is I jumped on my boogie board and floated around. It was a little bit deep for me.
Something silly happened. Mummy jumped on my lilo, that I got for Christmas and it looked really funny.
Then mummy went up to get lunch ready. Gigi and I was still in the lake. Gigi went out second and I got out last.
What did I have for lunch? I had a ham sandwich, cherries and chippies.
After that, mummy swam in the lake to see what was around the corner. When she was coming back I got the lilo and my boogie board and I went to mummy in the lake. Then we had another swim together.
When we were going home we walked along the edge of the lake and then the river, because I was too tired to go over the sand dunes again.
Mummy pulled me on my boogie board when the water was deep. But when it was very shallow I had to walk in the river. Sometimes I even crawled because I was so ch ch ch chilly.
When we got to the end of the river we walked on the path to our car.
When mummy was driving us home I thought that we had had a very good day. Then later I went to sleep in the car, I was tired!
