100 word Wednesday 16th May

Over to Bikurgurl for her weekly photo challenge.

Petra was annoyed at Jeb for dropping his paddle.
She lay her own across the front of their board and stared into the water.
‘If it wasn’t for the view,’ she said, ‘I’d be really cross.’
‘I’m sorry,’ he said. ‘It just slipped out of my hands!’
‘Don’t worry about it.’
She turned her head and smiled.
‘Can you see them?’
‘See what?’
‘The turtles.’
‘Turtles?’
‘Yeah. There’s one swimming towards us right now. Awesome!’
Jeb was relieved.
‘They’re supposed to be really smart aren’t they.’
He grinned at her.
‘Do you think he might retrieve my paddle for me?’

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 an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. 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.
