Here are two photos taken some time back when I was playing around with the filters from my phone. The beach was clear of people but a few moments later,
a group of family appeared near the water edge, building sandcastles and swimming in the sea.
It reminded me of my childhood years when I used to head to the beach every weekend or so. We would set up a tent, laze about under the shade provided by the short (lol) coconut tree, play the swings, build a sandcastle or frolick in the waters. At the end of the day, we would always buy an ice-cream from the ice-cream uncle’s cart before heading home. Those were the days when ice-cream was cut into a small block and placed between two waffle biscuits. We had to finish it quickly to avoid subjecting our hands to an ice-cream mask that was sure to “sweet-ify” our hands and attract ants.
