Sunday Photo Fiction – Sept 16 2018: a reblog

I’m reblogging this in response to Fandango’s Flashback Friday. Rather fitting that it follows the Friday Faithfuls post about challenges as this was one I looked forward to on a Sunday. Sadly the link to the original challenge doesn’t work anymore. Hope you enjoy it if you missed its first airing.

Both Stella and Stan were badly in need of a break, so had settled on a quiet resort and were enjoying a peaceful afternoon nap on the beach.
‘Hey Stella. You awake?’
‘Hm. Maybe. What’s up?’
‘Nothing much. Have you got your mobile?’
‘Nah. Wanted a day off from social media. Why?’
She snuggled deeper into the cushions.
‘You hungry?’
‘Kinda. The hotel runs a service down to the beach. You just need to attract the boy’s attention to place your order.’

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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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.
