After Bill carried him down the steps, they headed to Horseshoe Bay Beach so Sir Pigglesworth could lie on the beach and rest.
He lay down on the pink sand and immediately disappeared. His pearly pink skin was exactly the same color as the sand!
Nearby, twins Liam and Alivia were making sandcastles.
Alivia jumped up and ran to get their mom, so she could show her the sandcastle they had made.
She tripped and went flying over Sir Pigglesworth because she couldn’t see anything but a scarf and goggles lying in the sand.
“Are you all right?” Sir Pigglesworth asked, jumping up and shaking the sand off.
Alivia screamed and tried to stand up. “Are you a sand monster?” she asked.
Before he could answer, Liam tried to rescue her by running over and hitting Sir Pigglesworth in the head with his plastic shovel.
“Hey, take it easy,” the little piglet said with a laugh. “I’m not a sand monster, I’m Sir Pigglesworth.”
“Oh, well then, we’re glad you’re not a monster,” said the kids.
They laughed with him and invited him to build sandcastles with them.
After building sandcastles with his friends, Sir Pigglesworth put on his goggles, flippers and air tank and went scuba diving in the crystal-clear water.
He saw plants, coral and beautifully colored fish. He even saw a shark, but he hid behind a large piece of pink coral so the shark couldn’t see him.
As it swam away, Sir Pigglesworth felt brave. He had faced a shark (well, kind of) and won!
He turned his back to the shark and began doing the same tail twitching dance he had done to the kids on the ship.
When he turned back around, he realized the shark had seen him after all and was staring at him almost snout to snout!
Sir Pigglesworth swallowed hard and tried to swim away as fast as he could, but the shark was right behind him getting closer.
His little legs were getting very tired and he was beginning to slow down.
Sir Pigglesworth knew the shark was going to catch up to him any second!
Just then a dolphin swam up underneath him and lifted him onto its back. The dolphin carried him to the top of the water.
“See ya, Sharky!” Sir Pigglesworth called over his shoulder as the dolphin carried him back to shore and dropped him on the pink sand.
He thanked his aquatic friend for the ride and walked up to Bill and JoAnn who were gathering their blankets and umbrella to go back to the ship.
“You should have been there,” Sir Pigglesworth said pulling his mask off. “There was this big fat shark and it wanted to make me its dinner. But I showed him who was bigger and badder!”
