Lulworth Cove

Royston 1946 (Reading)

We decided to go to Lulworth Cove
and got into the car and off mum drove.
Granny, Granddad, Hannah, mummy and me
all set off to spend the day by the sea.

We talked and laughed and sped away,
it was the beginning of a wonderful day.
We parked the car and mum paid the fee
then walked up the hill to look at the sea.

I stood on the edge and Mum had a fit
and peered at the rocks with a cave in it.
Granddad went to get the picnic from the car
while we went to the beach which wasn’t far.

Then we sat down and I played for a while
and Granny put some stones into a big pile.
This was great so I went and got another one
we made it into a fort and were having fun.

Granddad went and found a super shell,
it made my fortress look really swell.
Then we placed a piece of seaweed high
on my fortress it hung, like a flag in the sky.

Hannah drew lots of Mr. Men in the sand.
Mum was helping her by holding her hand.
Granddad and I went over to investigate
looked at the drawings and they were great.

Then I tried to walk across the stream
“Don’t get wet”, I heard mummy scream.
But I was determined to have more fun
So I waded in deeper with my “wellies” on.

We laughed and played there by the sea.
I had great time with Granddad and Granny.
Then we jumped in the car and home we sped.
I was tired so I had some tea and went to bed.

Reflections on a trip to Lulworth Cove
and written through the eyes of my Grandson
