Day 23: “Beach Trip”

The kids built a sand castle. Marvin helped. Eventually, he told Penelope he would try out those surfing lessons.

Wetsuit on, he disappeared into the waves. She watched for a while. The children kept shaping sand into turrets.

An hour passed. Where was he? She scanned wave crests for a clue.

Then screams rose up. Beach combers ran. She saw his red striped surf board cruise by.

A dorsal fin emerged, tombstone grey.
