It had been a nightmare of a trip.
Cancellation and delay had had a knock on effect and it was a miracle they’d arrived at their destination at all.
Rosy looked across at her new husband.
He was sunning himself on a lounger, a cocktail on the small table beside him.
She sipped her own.
Perfect, even down to the little frilly umbrella.
‘Do you think they’ll miss us?’ he asked.
‘Doubtful. They were too busy getting underway and trying to make up time.’
‘Good. Maybe when they do, they’ll send a ship back for us, but for now…………..’
‘Cheers!’ Rosy grinned and they both started singing
‘Wish me luck as you wave me goodbye………..’ as the ferry sailed away without them.

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. 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.
