He was so happy that he could not stop smiling, rolling around in the sand and splashing around in the water, jumping and laughing without pause.



Then suddenly, he heard thunder and lightening. John was very sad to see a storm coming because it meant that he must go home.

His family had decided to spend several days in a house on the coast so they could enjoy going to the beach.

It was the most beautiful house they had ever seen; John was very happy because he could go to the beach more and play with his siblings.

After a while back at the house, he heard somebody knock on the door and went to open it. He was very surprised to see that his friends had come to spend the afternoon with him.

Now they were all together playing sailors, explorers and warriors, having fun in the house as they could not enjoy the sea that afternoon. John did not even realized that it had stopped raining, he was so happy playing with all his friends and decided to invite them more often.
