The water, the sun, the beach, it spells tranquility to me. What word comes to your mind?
Shadows are silver linings. You should have no fear of them because when you have a shadow, it means that you are standing in the light.
71 percent of the Earth is covered by water and every living thing thrives on water simply because WATER is LIFE.
I have seen water in many ramifications, from the abundance of the Oceans to bottled water of varieties, rainfall in the Tropics to the aridity of living in the Desert and one thing that I’ve found is that every living thing seeks out water. Unfortunately, there are places that lack this bare necessity that many take for granted, which reminds me of a well-articulated post I read earlier, written by Robert.
One of the things that I miss living in the UAE is rainfall. It’s such a rare occurrence and buying bottled water is the norm because the desert lacks a generous abundance of potable water.
Well, who says that if we can’t go to the exotic Island of Hawaii, that we can’t bring Hawaii to the desert and possibly have a good Luau while at it 🙂
Well, I must say that Ronovan’s prompt ‘beach & time,’ anticipates some good time in the near future with me. The weather over here has been sweltering, hopefully, we should see a turn to cooler climes in a few weeks.
Soon the weather will be cooler here
then we get to indulge,
and spend some time at the beach.
Book, beach bag, towels, ball, sunglasses & all,
we frolick in the sand
and it’s always a time well spent.

Like clockwork, Chris and Wolf went for their morning jog. One of the beauties of living close to the seaside was to watch the sunrise and sunsets above the waters. He loved the lifestyle his writing life presented, thanks to the success of his thrillers, though his was a lonely life.
Familiar with Wolf’s beach antics of sniffing at the crabs, digging through washed up debris, he wasn’t’ surprised when his Husky took off in excitement down the beach.
Within minutes, Wolf raced back, his insistent barking aroused Chris’s interest. The mound on the pebbles was an unconscious, female form. He quickly turned her over and administered CPR. She vomited, opened her eye’s for a few seconds and passed out again.
Glad that his home was close by, he carried her to his house to get her warm as quickly as possible and to call for help. Removing her sodden clothing to wrap a blanket around her, he saw the beautiful, antique watch nestled between her breasts and out of curiosity, he lifted the watch and saw the name inscribed at the back. It read, Jane.
