I see a blanket and chairs,
An umbrella in the sand.
There’s a cooler and some drinks,
I see sunscreen and towels.

My body feels the sun’s heat,
I hear kids splashing around.
I open the book I brought,
A volleyball rolls in sight.

“Come play with us” these people say,
Book mark in, I stand and join them.
My cousins pull me to the water,
I join in on the water games.

I dry myself off then lay down,
They do the same and we tan.
My other family comes back,
our beach vacation- relaxing.

We hug and say our goodbyes,
As we drive way I hear
Wonderfully Washing Waves.
I smile, I love my second cousins.
