This takes place at a beach, maybe in Bethany Beach in the summer of 1912 or Nancy said maybe 1940. Their names are Betsy and Hannah. They are friends and they met at school and have been friends for many years. They look like they are attending college and they are studying cooking and teaching. Betsy and Hannah are swinging on swings talking about their college classes and what they want to do for a living. Betsy wants to teach and Hannah wants to be a chef. Hannah looks very serious because she has a book on her lap. They are listening to the seagulls and the ocean waves crashing and waiting for some more friends to join them. They are going to change into bathing suits and go swimming when their friends come. After swimming they may go to dinner and a movie.
