Marooned

There were times when he hated himself for not making notes and throwing his usual caution to the wind. He’d only just got his boat, and obviously wanted to show it off.
He had asked around about a private beach where he and his Lady for the day could have a quiet picnic uninterrupted.
“You can’t miss it!” they said.
‘It’ll be worth the trip.” they added.
‘The scenery is breathtaking!” they chorused.
Yeah right.
So here he was, stuck on a sandbank because he hadn’t thought about the tides, feeling a prize idiot whilst his Lady was having hysterics down below!

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth for jelly babies or fruit pastilles. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
