Post A day at the beach (weather,clothes, playground, activities)
A day at the beach.


On sunday morning, my parents, my little brother Al, and I went to Whitby to spend a day at the beach. We were very excited!
The weather was perfect. It was sunny, not cloudy, and very hot.
My mother wore her blue and white swimming-suit, I wore my favorite white T-shirt and my grey shorts, my father wore his ugly yellow and pink shorts, and Al wore his green swimming-suit.

There were a lot of people!
A man with a yellow hat and sunglasses was reading the newspaper.
A woman with a long pink dress was knitting.
There was a man who was surfing, and there were many children playing and swimming.
I played with my pink, yellow and green ball with Al and Dad.
Mum was reading a magazine when Al started a sand castle.
I stayed on my towel for a long time and I got sunburnt!
My dad ate some strawberry ice-cream.

Then, we went to play at the playground. It was cool! There was a slide, swings, and a merry-go-round. It was fun!!

It was a very beautiful day!

There you go; I gave it a shot : it's not very long and not very good either; but maybe it can help.
Just tell me what you think can be changed ! :D

It's great!

Don't worry about length. The stories are supposed to be 'in context' vocabulary use. As long as they use the vocabulary and make sense, people will be able to use them, I believe.



With more weather vocabulary:

A day at the beach.


On Sunday morning, my parents, my little brother Al, and I went to Whitby to spend a day at the beach. We were very excited!

We wanted to go last weekend, but it was cold. It was a little foggy. It rained at my house and it was snowing in the mountains. But, in the morning on Sunday, the weather was perfect. It was sunny, not cloudy, and very hot.

My mother wore her blue and white swimming-suit, I wore my favorite white T-shirt and my grey shorts, my father wore his ugly yellow and pink shorts, and Al wore his green swimming-suit.

There were a lot of people!
A man with a yellow hat and sunglasses was reading the newspaper.
A woman with a long pink dress was knitting.
There was a man who was surfing, and there were many children playing and swimming.
I played with my pink, yellow and green ball with Al and Dad.
Mum was reading a magazine when Al started a sand castle.
I stayed on my towel for a long time and I got sunburnt!
My dad ate some strawberry ice-cream.

In the afternoon, it was raining a little, but it was clear in an hour. After the rain, it was partly cloudy and a little windy. It was very nice.

Then, we went to play at the playground. It was cool! There was a slide, swings, and a merry-go-round. It was fun!!

At night, we ate dinner at home. It was stormy outside, but Al and I played games and we had a lot of fun.

I had a wonderful day!
