Remember those days of sand castles and sunburns, of saltwater taffy and sand-drenched sandwiches? Remember how the cousins would romp inthe waves, and roll inthe hot sand like fish cakes? And on rainy days everyone stayed inside and read or played games? At night it was long walks on the board walks, Ferris wheel rides and sticky cotton candy. Those are the days that Aliki calls back in this heartfelt remembrance of one special summer vacation by the shore. Pile into the car, and journey to the seashore with Aliki.
