I’m going to the beach with my grandma.
We’re packing our bag for the day
with sunglasses, swimmers and sunscreen of course
plus lollies to eat on the way.
A cushion for grandma
a beach ball for me,
(I’ll blow it up when we get there)
orange juice, water,
a bucket and spade,
a swim cap to cover my hair,
some towels and a beach mat
and sandwiches too,
(deciding on fillings is hard)
umbrellas and raincoats in case there’s a storm
and, of course, grandma’s Seniors’ Card,
some insect repellent,
a box for the shells
we collect when we go for our walk
and perhaps extra water to cool down our throats
because we just talk, talk and talk.
