He tells them about a wonderful bay with magnificent water and sand
bottom and marvellous cliffs where one can lay in the sun.
The family make the long journey and on arrival park
their car and walk the last bit down to the beach.
Upon arrival they are met by a dissappointing sight. What they first
saw appeared to be a mass of floating green algae, but because of
the awful smell they soon realised it originated from rotting algae.
The children wanted to bathe anyway after their long car journey.
They were quick to change and jump into the water. Soon they realise
that their feet are sinking into some form of bad smelling sludge.
The wonderful sandy bottom that their father had told them about was
not to be found!
|The whole family were very
dissappointed and wondered why it did not look the same as when dad
was a child.
Things like this can happen when a family wants to travel to the sea
and bathe and sun themselves. This dreadfull scenario is not necessarily
true everywhere along the Swedish coast, but large areas have changed
over the past few years.
