He watched them from the shallows.
Soon the beach would be packed and the pickings would be good.
So intent would they be enjoying the cooling water and summer sun, caution would be thrown to the wind as they laughed and danced in the waves.
They may or may not notice him as he moved amongst them, leaving no trace or evidence of his being there.
In short, they would never know what hit them until it was too late.
He smiled.
And waited.
Two hours later, his pockets overflowed with watches, wallets and jewellery left unattended on the sand.

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.

    Every beach has scavengers. I see this as a warning – well written.
