San Francisco, California

In this short story, age and poverty are not deterrents to happiness. While impoverished pensioners in a gloomy city can’t afford a beach vacation, they improvise fun at a manmade one in the middle of town. The tale is presented from two points of view: that of a grandson who sees nothing except the dullness and monotony of the city’s gray reality, and that of a grandfather who perceives everything as bursting with magic.
