I sat down on the dry sand. The sand was warm as it was just a few hours past noon. My sister asked me to make something out of the sand, so I started making a sand castle . I made a starfish, and I saw a crab crawl out of a hole and race toward me. I was scared and ran away from it. This made my sister laugh out loudly. Later in the evening, My sister and I had a few snacks and coconut water.

Clues in the text:
