Last week, my friend and I rode our bikes to the beach. It was only five kilometers
from our houses.
It was quite windy and there was hardly anyone there. It surprised us because

on our own. We bought some hot chips, rode our bikes, played in the water and sat
under the trees. We really had a great time.

suit and bring cuddly toys in my box

watched me completely astonished. I smiled and looked straight at her.
With a man beside her, she said, “ Good afternoon. I’d like to introduce you
