Crimson’s Creative Challenge #95 – On a Cold Day

Crisp my aged companion looked wistfully down onto the beach. She had her favourite puffer jacket on as there was a biting wind blowing in off the water.

“Seems a shame to call it a beach,” she said, “what with it being so cold it’d freeze the walls off a bark humpy.”

It only took a few minutes for my teeth to begin chattering. “Seen enough?” I asked, taking a step away.

“Crazy isn’t it,” she said, ”the sun is shining, not a cloud in the sky and as cold as charity.”

“Those people down there walking on the beach must be hardy types,” she observed.

“Probably locals thinking this is a warm day,” I replied.

“No sense some people,” said Crisp taking my arm and leading me towards the café at the end of the path.

    Hope a hot cup of coffee pot the matters right. 👍

  2. I love this, Michael. Crisp is so… crisp. And I’m chuckling cos the photo was taken on the hottest day this summer (on this coast). I have never known it to be so hot beside the North Sea.

    Cafe by the ocean and a nice cup of hot chocolate would be just the ticket 😀
