At the Beach – Image by KL Caley

For visually challenged writers, the image shows 2 large pairs of wellies and a child pair of wellies on a sandy beach.


The first time I visited the beach, I was 8-9 years old. Going to the beach meant traveling to Karachi, our biggest port city. The journey was so much fun because we traveled by train for around 36 hours. I have shared that story in a previous post.

We stayed with my father’s sister’s family. They had lived in Karachi for a long time and were the perfect hosts.

The day we visited the beach, was a Sunday. There were lots of families there to enjoy the bright sunny day. I approached the water tentatively as it looked so vast and intimidating for me. But when I got my first wetting, I became bolder and ventured further into the coming and receding waves. It was a fantastic new sensation that I experienced that day.

An unforgettable day, etched in my memory, more so because going to the beach has been a rare experience for me as I’ve always lived far away from the ocean.

Thanks KL for giving me this prompt to relive my childhood memories.

  1. Your visit to the beach is a wonderful memory to have. I’ve never been to see an ocean as we live very far away, too. I’ve only been to the beach in south Texas, the Gulf of Mexico, a few times. Amazing experience! 🙂
