The little pond – she knew.

Prompt –

© 2015, Barbara W. Beacham

Finish the story begins with: ““Arriving at the beach, she reflected on her life.”

Arriving at the beach, she reflected on her life at the beach. She knew this piece of sand  better than she knew herself.
She knew the fishing village tucked away some distance from the beach. She knew the fishing boats that lay upside down; she knew the fisherman who did not return. She also knew the fisherman who had left the village and built mansions in the city by going out to the sea at odd times and bringing in strange cargo.
She knew the people who used the beach as an oven to bake their bodies; and of pies they baked here. She also knew the matrons and their children who built sand-castles and the waves that swept them flat.
She knew many other things that she shared with only one man. He was a irregularly regular visitor to the beach.
She knows it because she sells sea shells on the sea shore.

  1. Loved the last line! Well done YS! Thanks for taking the time to write again for the MFtS challenge and I hope that you return for the next challenge! Be well.. ^..^

  2. I agree that was a great last line, Yarnspinnerr. Also great descriptions. Your story gave us a word picture of the busy life at that beach and the places nearby. Well done. 🙂 — Suzanne
