I had taken my two children to the newly restored old docks area. I was admiring the boats and my children were arguing about what sweets from the shops they wanted.
‘What’s that big chain for, Daddy?’ my six year old, son asked.
I looked and saw a huge and heavy, rusted iron chain.
‘For the sea monsters,’ I replied.
‘Sea monsters?’ my eight year old, daughter echoed.
‘Yes. It’s in case a sea monster gets into the dock and they have to capture it.’
‘And then what do they do with the monsters?’ my son asked.
‘They feed children to it!’ I shouted and playfully tried to grab them both as they shrieked with laughter.
