This takes place at the beach, at bear foot beach. In June when school let out.He was over joyed in that he passed high school. He had passed his SAT tests. Now he was free to enjoy the summer. Fall will come soon enough and then it will be time for college. He feels lucky,to have made it. He was still sad in a way due to his friends and girlfriend will be left behind when he leaves. The boy is alone in the picture. The boy's name is Zach. Right before this he had gone to say good bye to his girlfriend.
After this moment, he will swim all day and fish. He hears the waves clapping and smashing.He smells the fresh sea water.
Then he remembered he promised his dad he would get a job. He thought about his career options such as becoming a life guard. By becoming a life guard it will allow him to be at the beach all day long. May be it would also be a way for him to find another girlfriend at the beach.
Time to move on he says!
There is much more to life as the french would say
si la vie.
