Rescue on Turtle Beach – Jen Marlin
“Ready?” called Grandpa as he picked up the cooler from the back of the truck. Max gazed at the ocean waves, which sparkled in the afternoon sun. He felt a shiver of excitement. “I’m always ready!” he called, rolling up his hoodie sleeves as he followed Grandpa toward the boats lined up along the dock. The marina was bustling. It seemed as if everyone in Starry Bay was out and about this sunny afternoon. Kids crowded around the ice cream stand, and families dotted the beach, their bright towels and umbrellas everywhere.
