Three Things Challenge #8: my response

My words for you today were: wall, people, back

Hugh had never seen so many people. They lined the docks and gangways two or three abreast, some standing on the wall to get a good view as the ship came into port.
The noise was deafening, flags waving, voices cheering, a brass band playing.
He scanned the crowd, then he saw her. She became the point of his focus and everything else just melted away as he was fighting through the masses to embrace her.
It was good to be back home.

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.
