Phoebe diverted from the cobblestones onto the familiar footpath that led to the narrow strip of sand along the sea wall. She set a silk and linen drawstring bag inside her basket and dropped them onto the beach. Off came her shoes.

Itasca Summers could smell the sea air long before she could see it. The taxi stopped at the port. Stepping out. She saw the cruise ship for the first time.— Emily Yager (@TheEmilyYager) April 28, 2020
“Uff-da,” she exclaimed. Taking in the sight before her.
“First time.” The portly taxi driver asked.
“Fiji is closer than ever!” Ellie reached up and touched the large painting in front of her reverently, tracing a dark green palm frond that hung over an inviting blue sea.— Jessica Marie Holt — Author (@Jessica06311722) April 28, 2020
June sighed.When Ellie was swept up in a reverie, there was no reaching her. #CleanWIP

Joy stood with Dolan on the ramparts of Castle Frankland. She studied her brother’s profile as he stared out at the northern sea where the waves crashed into the rocks along the outer wall. His mouth was grim, and she wondered what he was thinking.
Our village sits on a cliff above the sea. Every day, the sun ripples in a bright line along the ocean edge then rises a fiery pearl above the water where she slept. Once the sun slept in a cave and wouldn’t come out for fear of the demon that drove her there. #cleanWIP #vss365— ML Farb (@FarbMl) April 28, 2020
