Sunday Photo Fiction – June 9, 2019

Welcome to Susan Spaulding’s Sunday Photo Fiction challenge.
This week, she’s selected one of her own pictures for us. You can check out how to participate below:

‘You’re joking, right?’
‘No. Why? It’s perfect!’
‘But it’s a..a…… tent!’
‘Yeah. So? It’s big enough for the two of us and real cosy. What’s the problem?’
‘Look Harry. When you said we were getting away from it all for a quiet weekend, I imagined…………. well, something else.’
‘What’s better than this? No-one would think to look for us on a camp site! There are so many doppelgangers around and without the fan fare and make up truck in tow, who’s to know?”
‘I AM!’ she shouted. ‘ I do not DO tents! I want a flush loo, hot shower, decent food, a warm comfy bed, colour TV, a cold beer…………’
‘There’s a shower block, restaurant and pub on the site. The views over the bay are magnificent.’
‘No. I won’t go. Go on your own.’
‘OK, I will. Oh, I take it you can find your own way home then? The site’s in the opposite direction.’

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.

    That would be me – luckily Kevin and I are in agreement over the basic comforts of getting away from it all!

  3. I’m with Harry! My tiny tent and I have really happy holidays together – I’m off again in a few weeks time!

    I have to laugh every time someone calls me a camper because we have an RV (41′ toy hauler 5th wheel trailer). Nope, I’m an RVer. No way am I a camper. I have a queen bed, shower, dishwasher, washer/dryer AND a ceiling fan. LOL!

    Lesson number one, don’t go camping with a wrong partner. Toughing it out is not for everyone.
