First Trip to the Sea

W (a mentor) took G (a young person) to the beach. 

At 9 years old it might surprise you that this was his first trip to the seaside, despite living in South Somerset all his life.

G had a great time paddling and playing in the waves. He built his first sandcastle and was delighted when the waves crashed over it and washed it away.

In the car as they set off home G licked his forearm and said very quietly almost to himself "it really is salty". He slept the rest of the way home and refused a shower that evening so he could keep the sea with him.
