Daily Prompt: Beach

Today’s one -word prompt is, ‘Beach’

When we first came to Newfoundland, we were curious to see places around Gander, it was our ultimate destination. My husband who was a physician was invited by some of his patients to visit the nearby beach. we went to Sandy cove  Beach. It was summer,  visitors enjoyed themselves swimming and running around on the sand. I only watched, at the same time  enjoyed watching the people. It was a lot of fun.

You’re at the beach with some friends and/or family, enjoying the sun,nibbling on some water melon. All of a sudden within seconds, the weather shifts, and hail starts descending from the sky. Write a post about what happens next.

This prompt reminds me of a day in London ,England . The sun was shining brightly I decided to go for a walk, as soon as I came out of my room , Tanya Yakimoff who lived next door, came out with a broad smile she said, “Where do you think you are going?”

I smiled and said, “I’m going for a walk Tanya.”

“Is that so,” she said ,”Perhaps you have no idea of London weather, if I were you I’d carry an umbrella.”

“Carry an umbrella on a bright sunny day, I hate to carry it?”

“Don’t say I did not warn you.” With these words she went back to her room.

I was torn, should I carry an umbrella, but it’s such a nice day, I hope Tanya is wrong I mumbled and went on my way out. I went to Russel Square tube station, bought my ticket to go to Oxford Street.

I got off and immediately thought of doing some window shopping. I went inside Selfridges, got on the escalator going up, checked out  the floors, what was on sale. Instantly I recalled I had come to window shop not to buy anything, besides it wasn’t as if I had a pocket full of money.

After taking about two full hours in the department store, I checked my watch, it was time for me to head back to the residence. I came down  on the lift with all kinds of people.

When the door to the lift opened , I was on the ground floor, I walked fast to get out of the station. To my dismay the outside looked dark, “Is it evening already?” I thought.

Oh no, I exclaimed ! I did not bring my umbrella, it’s raining heavily. I waited for what seemed eternity for the rain to stop.

Eventually the rain stopped, I could see a rainbow, I felt hey now there’ll be no problem, I’ll get to my residence without getting wet. I walked out, to get to Oxford Street Station, it was not too far, I’ll make it I thought, but nature wanted me to get wet on that day, within minutes the skies went dark and rain started falling, I couldn’t go anywhere for shelter, I kept walking.

Finally I was at the station, bought my ticket to go back. Within ten minutes I reached my destination, Russel Square station. I came out but the rain did not stop. I was soaked head to foot before I reached my residence.

I quietly walked up the stairs, hoping Tanya wasn’t there, before I could turn my key into the lock, out came Tanya, “So did you enjoy your walk?” She said.

All I could say was,”I better go in and change my clothes or I’ll catch a cold!”

As I was getting into my room, I heard  Tanya burst into a roaring laughter. 🙂

365 Writing Prompts: Places

Beach,mountain,forest,or somewhere else entirely?

Beach at this time of year is not a place I’d like to go.

Mountain is not a place for the same reason a beach isn’t.

Forest, cannot think of going there either.

Somewhere else maybe, where it’s not cold, no snow no cruel strong wind.

Where the sun shines everyday.

We do not have to wear heavy coats, scarves and mittens.

Where nature beckons us with open arms.

Where the grass is green and feels like velvet.

Where the colorful flowers are lined up in a row.

Where there are hamburgers and french fries,

Laid out on long tables outdoors.

Where children are laughing and playing,

And mothers are smiling and saying,

“We wish it was warm throughout the year.”

That would be the perfect place for me to visit!

DP Daily Prompt: SOS

I was at the beach, I was lounging on my towel, suddenly I saw something shiny at the edge of the water. I got up and ran straight to find out what it was. While I was going towards it, I was dreaming,what if it is a diamond necklace.I’d pick it up and put it around my neck. I’d pretend it’s mine. On second thoughts I realized ,no one goes to the beach wearing a diamond necklace.

My day dreaming was working in full swing. I know if it really is what I think. I’d have a ball, I’d sell it for as much as I can get. I’d buy everything I want. Suddenly my inner self woke me up, “Now she said,forget the girl with the milk pail story,and find out what that shiny thing is.”

Oh I’m sorry, I’m not dreaming any more. I’m awake,as I was going towards it, I didn’t let all those foolish thoughts crowd my mind.  As I was inching closer, I could see it seemed like something made of glass. I walked faster when I reached the spot,I saw it was a bottle with a message in it.  I was excited. I’ve only heard people talk about finding a glass bottle with a message inside it. Now I’m actually seeing one. I’d tell my friends about this miraculous bottle I’ve found. “Hey missy my inner self shakes me, will you stop daydreaming again, pick up the bottle,unscrew it and read the message.”    Thank you I said .

I picked up the bottle, unscrewed the top and found the piece of paper. I was aghast when I read, “please if you find this note can you call my parents at : 123-455-6787,please tell them I’m kidnapped,my kidnappers are keeping me in a dark dingy room. I haven’t eaten for days,please tell them to rescue me from: Gobbledy Gook island, 33 meesly avenue,at the corner of super fry restaurant. Please tell them to hurry.I’d always be grateful to you if you do this for me. My name is ,”Blue Bonnet”.

I called the parents,they thanked me for helping me. I deserve a reward they said. I was happy I did one good deed that day.
