Hello, my name is Tom! I am five years old. Today, I am at the beach with my family. We are making a beautiful sandcastle. My brother is playing with his spade [US: shovel] and his bucket, and my mother is looking for some shells in order to decorate the sandcastle. Me, I'm looking at the seagulls because they make funny noises. And you, do you like the sea?
