Sunday at the beach

Sunday at the beach

I’ve written before about the number of children I see at the beach – not messing about with buckets and spades or paddling,  but actually working: selling crisps, jewellery, trinkets, performing, begging.

This upsets me terribly,  as does seeing other tourists be,  as I see it,  part of the problem, in that their handing over a few rupees here and there contributes to the concept of children (and their connected adults) viewing the beach as an economic opportunity.

However, this weekend I saw some children from the El Shaddai homes,  who came to “my” bit of the beach and,  as you can see here,  had a fabulous time:

It so wonderful to see children behaving as children should – messing about and playing.
