"Look, there he is!" Andy shouted to his sister.
Lynne dropped the beach ball and ran to the end of the short drive. The man in the red suit was now making his way between the chalets towards the football pitch.
"Come on, Lynne!" shouted Andy.
"We're just going to the playground, Dad," shouted Lynne.
"Okay, but don't speak to any strangers - and no more than half an hour. It's almost bed time."

"There!" called Lynne suddenly.
She was pointing to the path which lead to the main road. That was him again - dressed all in red and making his way along the path which lead to the main road.
"Come on. race you," shouted Andy.
