100 Word Wednesday: Week 114

As usual, Bikurgurl asks
What 100 words would you give this image?

The shade was a welcome relief. They’d travelled some three hundred miles and were now within five of home.
The canopy of leaves transported them back fifty years, travelling as they were now but with a young family in the back seat.
Times were so different then. No worries, life full of the potential of exciting adventures ahead.
The two of them glanced across at each other, smiling a sad smile but knowing they were fulfilling a promise.
Things were reversed, with the children now in the front and the parents in the back, side by side in matching urns.

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.

    A spectacular written last line! I love what show in this story, the kids now in the front and the parents are gone and life continues.
