A Mini Poem Challenge -- To the Beach

To the Beach
Buckets, blankets, long beach towels
Flip flops, sunglasses, bathing suits 
Shovels, plastic pails, little rakes 

Fins, flippers, goggles, and surf boards 
Water, soda, sandwiches, crisps 
Cakes and pies, watermelon too 

Trip to the loo, kids in the car 
Ready?  Brighton Beach here we come

 - Kim would like a short, beachy poem, mine has 44 words.
 - Brighton Beach?  One time when we were visiting in London, KP, Mrs. Jim, and SIL Bill went to Brighton for the beach. I was not quite up for going on that day. My loss. BTW, they took the train, no car.

You've captured the excitement of a day trip to the seaside in your 46 word list poem, Jim!
The alliteration adds to the busy atmosphere - and I love the way you subtly added the obligatory trip to the loo before setting off!

All the things we need, when we go to the beach. Loved it.

Ha, the checklist defines the spirit of this outing. A lovely rhythm in this verse too.

Love this Jim - your words evoking the wonderful memories of childhood beach excursions.

So much to pack if you go to the beach... been to Brighton once when we have a very long transfer when we went home from the US... Perfect from Gatwick

And what fun, gathering all that equipment together and taking off! (We have a Brighton Beach in Australia, too.)

Hi Jim! I think you covered everything necessary for a trip to the beach. Sorry you didn't make the trip ... another time?
