Tiegan: The worst thing is the weather. It's usually raining. I don't like the rain.
Michael: And there's no beach. Well, there is but it takes you two hours to get there. It's closer if you're on holiday. I like the sand.
Tiegan: I like running through the water in welly boots. I wouldn't go in with my bare feet. There's wee seaweed things that stick to your feet.
Elizabeth: I was stung once by a jellyfish. It was a baby jellyfish so my toe didn't swell up. But walking back to the apartment was really sore. I can go to the seaside now, but only if I know there's no jellyfish.
Michael: If you're scared of jellyfish, they have flags that mean it's safe.
Tiegan: What holiday have you been on? - cos I've never seen flags.
Michael: They have flags that mean danger and other flags that mean it's safe.
Raymond: What are you talking about? The jellyfish have flags?
Michael: Naaw. There's a big flag at the beach and red means danger and green means it's OK. Well, it does in Mexico. That's where we went.
Elizabeth: There's a place I go called Rothesay. You go to Wemyss Bay on the
train, then you get a ferry. There's a wee cafe that sells ice cream and a bit of everything. It's cheap and so's the swimming and the hotels. There's also Millport.
Tiegan: You get to cycle around Millport.
Raymond: I broke my bike once. I rammed it into my mum's car, by mistake. I'd just learned how to do it and I wasn't good at turning. So I saw this car in front of me, but I couldn't turn. I'm more skilful now.
Michael: I don't like the houses in Scotland.
Tiegan: They're all dirty brown, most of them anyway.
Michael: You go on holiday and there's a big bathroom and a toilet. Our houses aren't as nice.
Raymond: Most of the houses around here are flats.
Tiegan: They're not proper houses with a garden.
Raymond: One of the good things about Scotland is the dogs. I like dogs.
Michael: I like the parks. Where we stay, we're lucky. There's a big park called the RAPA.
Elizabeth: It takes you on trips and they're free.
Raymond: I think RAPA stands for Reidvale Adventure Playground. You can play football there.
Michael: There's this one thing they do that's really good. It's called Let's Get Manky.
Tiegan: It's usually after a rainy day and there's mud and it's horrible. You slide down the chute into big puddles, head first. You bring old clothes and a change of clothes. It's mostly the boys that do it.
Michael: Girls don't want to get their hair manky.
Tiegan: I've done it, but I don't like it. The mud goes in your socks and when you walk it squelches.
Raymond: You bring a permission form. They lost mine the last time I went, but that wasn't the worst bit. The worst bit was I forgot to bring a change of clothes. I got clean eventually. But I had to stand in the bathroom for a long while.
