A sandy situation ...
Today Christopher's school class went to a Surf Lifesaving Day at Terrigal beach. It was primarily to teach the kids sound beach skills - swim between the flags, how to get themselves out of a rip, basic lifesaving skills, suncare plus a few beach games - volleyball and races thrown in for good measure. Sound like fun??
In car on way home after school ....
Me - So how was it?
CJ - Oh it was alright I guess.
Me - Only alright? So what was wrong?
CJ - the sand.
Me - Oh !!! (Smiling) So you're not a beach person then?
CJ - Nah - there's too much sand and there are way too many dangerous things.
Me - OK so I guess you prefer to be in a swimming pool then.
CJ - Yeah, a pool is much more fun and nothing dangerous there except drowning.
Yep guess drowning would take the fun right out of it !!!
