So, with permission of her mother and father, she stays on the beach after the rest of the family have left to look for more shells. But the tide is coming in fast, and she made a promise with her mother to be back before it gets dark, so she starts to climb back up the cliff towards the cottage in Eagle's Nest where they are staying. But there is a giant storm wave coming towards her, which sweeps her off her feet and leaves her elsewhere...

So I went to have a look. The Parkland was rolling and gracious, the driveway imposing, but at first glance I could see no house. Then I discovered there was no house, not any more. All I found was a plaque on a wall telling me the house had been destroyed by fire. No one knows how or why the fire started. Until now.'
