I have always thought that the beach was an awesome. Ever since I was a small child I have always loved the beach. I love the way the water splashes up on the shore and turns to foam. I also love how the water crashes on the shore and takes the sand away under your feet as it goes back out into the ocean. I believe everyone should go to the beach at least once in their life.

Rick and his wife Karen live in Phoenix, Arizona and we don't get to see them that often. I was excited. My cousin Dillon was there and we were going to celebrate his eleventh birthday.

I was a little frightened. My mother- she was terrified of heights- was very scared. It took a few minutes to get to the other side in Maryland. Seeing the Atlantic Ocean for the first time really excited me.
I started thinking about all the things I was going to do. I couldn't wait to jump in the ocean and play in the sand. I was going to play in the sand and watch all the boats. I also knew there would be an amusement park there. It was going to be the best of both worlds- fun in the ocean and on land.
Day two arrived and we finally went to the beach. My mom and dad took us into the water and...
