A comment was left a few days ago:
"Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL!"
A delightful story! Please feel free to add your own experiences of 'beach' or 'childhood memories'.
Here is a personal photograph of me as a small child on a donkey at Blackpool Beach. Donkey rides on holiday used to be popular when I was a child.
