Her yellow curls gleamed golden in the sunshine. “It reminds me of soapsuds, too,” answered the teacher. “The bubbles are full of color on a morning like this. We should have a wonderful time on the beach today. Shall we go?” On they ran, teacher and children glad of the holiday, glad of the March wind and sunlight. At the base of the cliff they again met the stream which hesitated as if awed by the breakers beating against the rocks. Where the cove opened out in sun-warmed stretches of sand, Pigeon Creek moved gently on to mingle its sweet waters with the brine of the Pacific. The children and Miss Luella took off their shoes and stockings and waded in the shallows. Above the noice of the pounding waves rose the sound of their laughter and shouting...
