Mrs. Squirrel's Beachy Holiday

Long ago, there lived a lady known as Mrs. Squirrel. Every day, she used to get up at dawn and start baking cakes and pastries to put up at her shop for sale. The aroma of her freshly baked products would waft out, tempting people to flock at her shop to buy her yummy goodies.
One day, during summer season, Mrs. Squirrel decides to go on a holiday as it had been a long time since she had been to one. She decides on a beachy holiday to a nearby Misty beach and starts packing her bags.
In go the swim suit, sunglasses, hat, sunscreen lotion and all cotton dresses and flip flops. Mrs. Squirrel reaches the railway station and boards the train. She enjoys looking out of the window admiring the scenic beauty. Finally, the train reaches Misty station and Mrs. Squirrel gets down the train excited and joyful. She checks into a hotel and then heads to the beach for a nice peaceful rest under the beach umbrella. But no sooner does she drift to sleep; she gets awoken from a group of noisy collegians.
She then sees a rock in the water and goes and sleeps on it. After some time, when she wakes up, she finds that it is already evening and that she has reached a strange island. Actually, the rock who takes Mrs. Squirrel to the island is a tortoise. At first, she gets frightened of the lonely island but soon she starts enjoying the quiet and peaceful atmosphere and the scenic beauty of it.
She spends the whole week on the island enjoying the solitude and the abundance of fresh fruits. Finally after a week's rest, she decides to head back home. She prepares a boat with an empty coconut shell, fixes a leaf to it, jumps into it and reaches shore safely. She goes to the hotel, collects her belongings and takes the train back home, tired but refreshed after a nice holiday.
