  1. One summer in Bray, an English visitor and her children were spending their holidays by the seaside. Two of the children said they were going for sweets and they went over to the seawall and let the money fall into the sea.
    One of the children went down to the sea, to look for the money and the heavy waves came in and carried her away. The visitors were in a terrible state and they stayed back three months looking for the body, but they had to go home without it.
