To The Sea!

Such a treat, I’ve not been able to sleep from the excitement.

We are going to see the sea!

Of course I’ve heard a lot about it, read about it too, but this will be the first time that it I will have got to view it with my own eyes.

They say it is an endless expanse of water that rushes in and rushes out. It brings with it a scent of adventure, the taste of salt. Is it not that which has lured many sailors out onto its waves? Those that are daring, venture in to it. Paddling their feet in the chilly water while others stand up to their knees in it. I do not think I’d dare.

But as if the sea wasn’t enough excitement in itself, we are going to the pier.

The big one at Blackpool, with all the entertainments and attractions. There will be so many treats on sale there, my mouth waters at the thought.

I want to go on the Big Wheel! I hope Mama and Papa will allow me to. It turns around and lifts you up to sit high in the sky and you can see for miles and miles.

I wonder if I’ll be able to see the place where the sea ends.

There will be lots of people there as well as us. I’ll need to take care not to get lost in the crowds. I must make sure to hold on to Mama’s or Papa’s hand.

So much excitement there will be for us all at Blackpool. And I will see the sea!
