The anticipation of summer vacation can put anyone in a great mood with the excitement of adventures to be had–especially at the beach. But what is a group of friends to do when they discover mysterious men poaching whale teeth at the beach?
In the back seat of the car, Leah closed her eyes and breathed deeply. The saltwater scent carried by the warm breeze filled her nose. A short block from the beach, Leah’s family car rolled to a stop at their rental house. She hopped from the car and kicked off her flip-flops, dying to feel the warm sand between her toes.
Shielding her eyes from the sun, she heard familiar voices, yelling her name. Squinting through little sunray twinkles, Leah saw Nicole and Hayley.
“It’s about time you got here,” Hayley said.
“It feels like we’ve been waiting forever,” Nicole said.
“I know how you feel. The car ride felt like forever, too,” Leah said. “I just need to take my bag inside, and then let’s head to the beach.”
The trio walked to the beach. Shouts roared over the rumble of the surf. They sprinted down the wooden-planked walkway over the dunes and stopped short.
Down by the water’s edge, a huge whale had washed up, and people swarmed around like bees on flowers.
“Holy cow! How the heck did a whale get here?” Leah pointed.
