“Come on I want to show you something,” he said.
We followed the water up the beach into the trees, into an area where the water pooled before it ran down the beach.
“This is pretty,” I said
Mathew wasn’t paying much attention, he seemed to be looking for something. He reached down and I saw what it was. He picked up a frog and put it in his hand.
“Look how cute he is,” he said.
“You remembered,” I said.
He cupped his other hand over the frog as it tried to jump.
“No, no little fellow,” he said lowering the frog back to the water.
We watched as he swam back into the undergrowth.
