A few years ago our family went on a vacation to the beach. I still cherish the memories of our walks on the beach at night time. Especially those nights when the water is lit up by a natural phenomena called 'Bioluminescence' This true magical experience made me think of a girl who travels with her grandparents to their beach house. One evening, when walking at the beach, she lost track of the dog, but eventually manages to find it back with the help of a little magic.
