Grains of sand upon a soggy sole,
Tracks left behind upon the beach.
Pleasing hours without ticking clocks,
Freedom bestowed a perfect afternoon.
Memories collected in the seeing of it all,
Images captured the fleeting scenic beauty.
Hilarious happenings reveal the merriment,
Reminders lodged in each individual mind.
Mementos regarded with affection long after,
Family love bequeaths another passage of time.
