The story behind the poem
The kids are playing in the sand and they want some
help to make some sandcastles so they call out to their parents who
are sunbaking in front of the sea and then the parents finally finish
the sandcastle and the kids shout with glee because the sandcastle was
Farther out at sea the dolphins are leaping through the water and the
passengers on a boat see them and think that they're amazing.
Then some people see some seagulls looking for dinner and when they
find a fish they gobble it down quickly.
You can collect some shells with your family and you must be happy
that you get to go to Maroubra Beach!
When you go on a walk on the sand you remember the ship Hereward
crashing in the rocks in 1898.
You'll probably feel sad when you have to go home but you can always
come back whenever you like.
