Friday Fictioneers : Beach-combing

Beach-combing

The morning sun reluctantly lights the sky, but it’s far too early to expect any warmth.

It’s the perfect day to stay wrapped up snuggly in bed, dreaming of hot coffee, toast and marmalade.

But a promise is a promise.

The children run in front with butterflies in their stomaches and heads full of adventures.

The beach, meanwhile, busy coping with the wind and the occasional seagull, drops its guard and leaves it’s personal effects exposed.

Whoops of joy as the children discover shiny coloured stones and sea treasures.

Meanwhile, love kindles in the familiar comfort of a tender embrace.

Friday Fictioneers is a weekly challenge set by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. I always look forward to each weeks challenge. This weeks photo prompt (© Janet Webb) I found particularly inspiring and could have used it in many ways. The file description mentions that it is a Wasp’s nest but I love the setting and the ambiguity so in this little story I glossed over the details! This post marks the first occasion I’ve read out aloud a story.
