Favourite childhood memory

In the summer, as kids, we lived for the weekends when my father would say "let's go to the beach"! My friends Pucho and Alejandro would sleep over with me. We would get up really early in the morning, around 5am, load up the car with food - rice and beans and tamales and a Russian version of Spam! - plus rum for my father - and lots of water. And we would drive an hour and a half out to a beach near Pinar del Rio - in the far western part of the island. The adults put up hammocks and chairs and umbrellas and started to play dominos or read. The rest of us, the kids, played in the ocean all day long. We would get back late at night, full of sand, dark with sun, exhausted from the heat. We would fall into bed without saying a word - out cold, in a sandy bed.
