Charlie loves the sea.

He loves the seashells and the seahorses, the sharks and the stingrays, the crabs and the crayfish.

 He loves the gentle waves that creep up onto the sand and tickle his toes.

 He loves the huge wild waves that crash onto the sand and make the beach tremble.

 But most of all he loves the whales.
