I was walking on the beach when the tide started to come in. It came in fast and soon there was no room to walk before the dune. I started to scramble up over the dune when a wave overtook me and knocked me down. Waves were washing over me repeatedly. I was terrified and screaming, but somehow I finally reached safety.
Mother and Father stopped to visit on their way to San Francisco to travel on the Green Tortoise. They said I could come along. I told them I would have to wait until I left Dahlia Man's at seven to leave. Later I realized that it is a ten hour drive to SF, and we could never make it by eleven if we only left at seven. I told Mother and Father and they were very disappointed.
