Two families in Cornwall are counting themselves lucky tonight after they got trapped by the tide on a beach near Rock.
It was their impromptu SOS message that was spotted by a passing walker from a cliff top.
The four adults and three children wrote the words 'Call for Help' in the sand.
The alarm was raised and a lifeboat raced to rescue them.
Jacquie Bird takes up the story:
The RNLI Padstow all-weather and Rock D class inshore lifeboats were used to rescue four adults and three children on Butter Hole beach in Padstow.
A cliff walker spotted the words "send for help" written in the sand.
Four adults and three children have been rescued by lifeboat after they got trapped on a beach in Cornwall by the swell. The RNLI was called to Butter Hole beach in Padstow yesterday after a cliff walker spotted the words "send for help" written in the sand.
The party had sailed in for a picnic but as the tide flooded the waves increased and they were afraid to launch back into the sea with the children onboard. As they didn't have radios they wrote the message in the sand and were lucky that it was seen.

This was a very difficult rescue carried out with great skill and bravery. There was the ever present threat of the lifeboat being swamped or capsized by the dumping seas, but our crew worked together to recover all the people and then their boats.
The group made a very sensible decision not to try launching their boats but they were lucky that a walker noticed the message calling for help written in the sand.
I would remind people that it’s important to have a suitable means of contacting someone when going to sea. Don’t assume you will have a mobile phone signal so take a VHF radio.
Seven people have been rescued from small boats off the coast of Padstow.
The Rock inshore lifeboat and the Padstow all-weather lifeboat were launched.
The four adults and three children were uninjured.
A man and dog have been rescued after getting stuck 20m up a cliff near Porthcothan Bay in Cornwall. Newquay and Padstow Coastguard Teams were called to the cliff south of Trevose Head earlier and managed to bring both of them to safety.
More than 1400 baby lobsters have been released into the wild in Cornwall. It is the National Lobster Hatchery's first release of the year - which runs from June until October.
The babies have been released just off the coast at Newquay. The Hatchery expect to release around 60,000 lobsters into the sea this season. The programme is part of scheme to help sustain the future of the seas and coastal communities that rely on the fishery for their livelihood.
