Olivia laughed as Daddy’s wiggling toes disappeared under the sand. It had taken hours to dig the hole and a further hour to convince Daddy to lie in it. “Keep your arms still,” she ordered with a giggle.

The sun was clipping the horizon when Daddy was buried up to his neck. “Take a picture then get me out,” he said. “The sea’ll be coming in soon.”

Olivia picked up the camera and brought it down on Daddy’s head until he was still. Then she piled on more sand.

As she collected her belongings to leave, the first wave arrived.
