人豪:今天天气真好,我们一家人有很长时间没有一起出来玩儿了吧。

雪梅:这里的风景不错,而且靠近水边,空气也很好。

小杰:爸爸,我们一会儿找个地方放风筝吧。

人豪:行啊。小杰啊,你不是一直嚷嚷着要看后海吗?这就是。

小杰:是吗?这一片都是后海吗?

人豪:来,你看,这是银锭桥。桥的这边是什刹海,又叫后海,那边是前海。

雪梅:这桥可真够秀气的。

人豪:你别看它小,从前这儿还是一景呢,叫银锭观山,都说从这儿能看到西山。

小杰:是吗?西山在哪儿?

人豪:现在你看不到了。

小杰:爸爸,我觉得北京的地名儿很奇怪。

人豪:为什么呢?

小杰:北海呀、什刹海呀,就是一个湖,为什么要叫它们“海”呢?

雪梅:我也觉得很奇怪,是不是古人觉得它们特别大,像海洋似的,就管它们叫海了?

人豪:你们都很善于发现问题,不过不是这个原因。

小杰:那是什么原因呢?

人豪:什刹海的“海”是“海子”的意思。

雪梅:这两个词不是一个意思吗?

人豪:不,“海”是“海”,“海子”是“海子”,海子是满语,是湖泊的意思。

小杰:原来是这样啊,爸爸你知道的真多。

雪梅:人豪,你看,这里还有很多酒吧,到了晚上一定很热闹。

人豪:是啊,在这儿既可以喝酒,又可以欣赏美景,一举两得。

雪梅:而且这里风景优美,闹中取静,住在这儿也肯定不错。

人豪:对,历史上有很多名人都住在这儿,清朝就有好几王爷住在这儿。

小杰:王爷?那他们的房子现在还在吗?

人豪:有啊,就拿恭亲王府来说吧,保存得就很完整。

雪梅:除了恭王府,还有其他的吗?

人豪:还有醇王府,后来变成了宋庆龄故居了。

醇王府.雪梅:宋庆龄?也很有名嘛。

人豪:这什刹海周围啊,可以说到处都有故事,说上三天三夜也说不完。

小杰:到处?在哪儿呢?(低头作寻找状)

雪梅:小杰?你在这儿折腾什么呢?

小杰:找故事啊。

人豪:哈哈,走,我这就带你们找故事去。
