Sitting on the dock at her beach house, Angelica noticed how beautiful the waves were as they rushed into shore. She could not believe how cool it was on the beach. The day had been very hot and humid. This was typical weather in Florida during the summer, but today it was almost unbearable to be outside. Angelica and her family had played in the water and the hot sun all day. They were sunburned and tired, but they were going out for dinner since her mother did not want to cook.
