Summary (IBList user synopsis):

Aunt Bea drags Nancy, Debbie and Simon on a day trip to the seaside - with a large bundle of "necessary items" all neatly labelled in case of loss. She insists on picnicking on Island Island, ignoring all the warning signs.

The island shudders and all of a sudden they aren't at the beach any more - they are in the middle of a gun-range. Then they are on an iceberg. The island shudders again...
