“Pull over here mom,” Molly O’Claire was half out of the door before the car had stopped.

The Atlantic Ocean in all its glory stretched out for miles in all directions. Waves that were tipped with foam bubbles washed up onto sun-drenched sand and washed out again to leave imprints of the bubble behind. Blue skies interlaced with cirrus clouds spoke of fair weather in the days ahead. Molly sighed with the sheer beauty of it. She kicked off her shoes and waded into the cold water.

“Isn’t it beautiful mom?” she called to the woman who waited near the Jeep on the shoulder of the road. Mary waved to her daughter. Molly’s red hair blew wildly about her face. She held it back with one hand as she laughed.

“Come on Molly, Sarah is waiting for us.” Molly waved to show she heard her then smiled as she spotted a starfish on the beach. She picked it up and tossed it back in the water.

“Come on, let’s go.” Molly retrieved her shoes from where she had thrown them and walked barefoot up the slight hill to the Jeep. She brushed her sandy feet off before she climbed back into the passenger side.
