Sunday Photo Fiction – November 26th 2017

Two hundred words or less for this challenge.

He remembered the excitement of coming into port.
He loved his life and all the perks that went with it.
Having the yacht was the icing on the cake of course, it gave him broader horizons and opportunities, of which he took full advantage.
He enjoyed the company of the opposite sex but none were invited aboard for a trip other than a jolly round the harbour.
His week long excursions were private, which is how he’d gotten away with it for so long.
He sighed. He wouldn’t be going out to sea for a few years yet, if at all.
Just one careless comment from a casual acquaintance and everything changed.
Apparently They had been watching his comings and goings for some time and had gathered enough evidence to put him behind bars.
On that final glorious sunny day he was arrested at the dock for smuggling.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    The ‘coming and going’ reminded me of “Love in the time of Cholera”. But that was with a partner 🙂
