In August I was on the beach for the first time. I saw the sea and I really loved it! I met a nice girl called Kate. Together we played beach volleyball but I have to practise. After that she invited me to come with her on the motor boat of her parents. The boat was very big and I enjoyed the time on it when we were riding out to the open sea. Some people were surfing and they were wearing wetsuits because the water is so cold in Ireland. Children were building fantastic sandcastles. Other people were reading books or the newspaper, went swimming or were sleeping. I was lying in the sand with my sunglasses. I think I look very cool with them!
