The sun was low in the sky and it would soon be evening. Mum and I reached the rocks at mouth of the lagoon and stopped to look around. On one side was the ocean and on the other side, the rocky mountain. We continued, climbing over the rocks and following the shore until we were far from the lagoon at a small beach.
Mum pointed high above the beach to TWO caves, and we started to climb. The first cave had a lovely sweet smell, it smelt like yummy honey. I wanted to look inside but Mum promised we would return to explore it on another day.
We climbed a little higher and reached the second cave. The entrance was very wide and the whole cave was filled with the orange glow of the sunset. One side was filled with soft red sand, perfect for sleeping. We set out our blankets and opened our baskets.
Mum and I each ate an apple while watching the moon rise over the ocean. The sun had set and it was time to sleep. Mum and Dad kissed me good night and cuddled me to sleep.
