another island afternoon

The air was 10 degrees C.

The sky had a thick blanket of grey cloud.

Her boat was decidedly low on fuel.

The rain slanted and changed direction many times. The wind flapped. The waves leapt, playfully.

But she hoped for the best, and found it.

She got her kiddles (unfazed) home safely, along with... [you should know by know - there's always an "along with" in her stories] school backpacks, shopping, and 3 deck chairs. [why? O why? are there always 3 deck chairs?]

As she walked back along the jetty to retrieve another load and haul it up her hill, she held her hair back from her face, looked out towards Towlers Bay, where her eyes don't know where to rest, and felt the wind pushing against her. And she thought:

Man! This is excellent! Look where we live!

O yes. Now you can girl her... Boat Girl.
