Molly and Milly have arrived in Carolina Beach for a summer of fun and relaxation. Today is the Volleyball tournament and Dad's signed up to play. Molly's a little concerned about the sharks because she doesn't think she's big enough to fight them off.

The first full day of vacation

Molly's up early and she wants to go to the beach. She overheard mom talking about the volleyball tournament and she doesn't want to miss a minute of it. She wants to get there before the crowds come and take all the good spots. Molly wants a front row seat. This is the life. Fun, sun and volleyball. There's no bad guys on the beach. Life is good. Milly is still sleeping and the only other person up in the early morning hours is mom. She's brewing some coffee.

Early morning swim

Molly's looking out the window at the ocean. She sees an early morning swimmer in the water. If only everyone would get up she could go out in the water too. The kids stayed up half the night and Dad was on his computer till late so they'd be sleeping for awhile. Milly was sleeping next to Dad and probably wouldn't get up till Dad did. Mom was Molly's only hope. Hopefully she would want to take an early morning walk on the beach. Molly had read that seashells would come in out of the ocean everyday and land on the beach. Molly was hoping to get a good collection before she went home.

Walking on the beach

As soon as Molly heard the coffee finish brewing Mom called for her. She had Molly's leash in her hand and was going to go for an early morning walk. Molly was elated because she wanted to be on the beach. Mom and Molly walked out the side door and walked the few feet to the beach. There was a couple walking along the water's edge. Molly saw the volleyball nets but it was too early for spectators to be on beach. Molly was content to walk with mom. She was delighted because there were seashells everywhere. There were all different sizes and colors. Mom picked up some and put in her bag and Molly found a couple favorites that she was going to take back to the house. Molly walked near the water's edge and the water felt cool on her paws.

Volleyball practice

By the time Mom and Molly walked back down the beach some early morning volleyball players were practicing for the tournament. It was so exciting to Molly. She just wanted to stay and watch but mom said it was time to get something to eat. By the time they got back to their rooms the kids were up and had the television on and Dad and Milly were getting out of bed. Mom made a big breakfast for everyone and decided that after their breakfast settled they would all go to the beach. Milly wasn't as excited about the volleyball tournament as Molly was but Dad seemed very interested. What Molly didn't know was that Dad signed up to be on one of the men's teams. He was really looking forward to it. The kids just wanted to build sandcastles and play in the water.

The Beach

Everyone left at the same time to go to the beach. The waves looked a little rough to Milly but it didn't matter because she had no intention of going in the water. She was going to find a nice quiet place and set up her umbrella and read her newest magazine. Molly hoped for everyone's sake there were no sharks in the water. She didn't want to alarm anyone but she wasn't sure she could fight off a shark, from what she'd heard they were pretty big. People were gathering around the volleyball nets and Molly was headed in that direction. Dad was following close behind. People were starting to set up their beach chairs. Molly had brought her beach towel to lay on.
Mom was going to stay with the children.

You are setting us up for some problem at the beach. The mix of sun, volleyball, beach, and surf doesn't sound scary, so why am I worried?

LeRain, I have to give you credit. You know a set up when you see it. I have the story all planned out but as you know we have to start somewhere. It's going to be a nightmare! Molly and Milly are in for quite a ride.
