Little Nippers


An entry for  MYWORLD

My grandson is somewhere in this picture. Little Nippers play on the beach, all the time learning to be future Life-Savers. Even if they never continue on to saving lives, they learn important skills from the dedicated young people who teach them. This beach, a short way from us, is called Redhead.

LITTLE NIPPERS

In Australia, in the Summer,
'All the world's a beach' they say.
Here are Little Nippers for you,
'Surfing' in a special way.
In the future we may find them
Saving lives, but, just for now,
They are having fun together.
Little Nippers!
Take a bow!

They all look like they are having a wonderful day at the beach.

I love the idea of swimming lesson in the surf, not a pool. I guess if there was an ocean near, we might have that, too, but alas, there is not.

Please be so kind to remember to put your country with your name when you link from the My World Tuesday site so everyone knows where they are visiting. I'll fix it for you today.

Thanks so much for your participation!

As we over here in the US move into Spring, you move into Fall, probably the best time of year in Australia. I can't wait to go to the ocean again! Thank you for sharing Your World! :)

Loved the twist to the 'stage'
'All the world's a beach' they say.
