What is your most treasured beach related memory? Splashing in the sea with the cousins? Burying your sister in the sand up to her waist? Building an extravagant sandcastle with your dad? Throwing your grandma’s rock cakes at the seagulls? Hunting for pennies under the pier to spend in the arcade?
Beaches are beautiful places for treasured moments, family experiences, friendships to be built and developed. They are spaces where children are set free to roam and play and explore and create, away from the structure and routine of normal life or organised games. A place for excitement and adventure and imagination – a place for the world and the mind to come alive, for new ideas and dreams to form, for childhood in its very essence to be realised. Let us celebrate those times, those memories, and those special places where all this becomes not only possible but natural and easy. Let us put ourselves in a position where we allow ourselves and those around us to be creative and adventurous, to explore, to dream.
