5: With them they bring | a pail and a shovel | a kite | and an umbrella. | towels

6: The tide is low so Lexie and Sydney dig holes and put the clams they find into a bucket.

7: Lexie and Sydney look for creatures in the big puddles left by the tide | starfish | snail | little fish | crab

8: Lexie and Sydney walk on the wet shore and smell the salty air. | Lexie finds a long piece of seaweed and pretends she is a movie star.

9: Sydney writes her name in the sand with a driftwood stick.

11: The sun rises high in the sky. Auntie brings the girls a picnic lunch. Lexie and Sydney sit on their towels under the umbrella and eat peanut butter and banana sandwiches. They feed the crusts of their bread to the seagulls.

12: After lunch, Lexie and Sydney build a sandcastle. Lexie digs a moat and Sydney collects shells.

13: A very fancy sandcastle indeed!

14: Lexie and Sydney take turns flying the kite. They run along the beach letting out string until the kite looks like a dot in the sky. Lexie and Sydney play and play and play all day...

23: The lights go off in the window in back and the window in front of the little grey house where Lexie, Sydney, and Auntie are all fast asleep.
