Our thirty-first entry this year is from Angie Clifford and is called The Ferry Ride.
“Hurry up Jon,” I shouted, disaster as I slipped, uneven paving! Yellow high wedge sandals, meant a sprained ankle, ouch! Wearing only a chiffon skirt and top, a summer’s day shopping in Jersey awaited maybe street cafes.
Our boat, bobbing sedately by the quay, only a few more meters and I was onboard. I sat upfront port side, soon Jon was by my side, and we were off. Amused: I saw, passengers wearing rucksacks, hiking boots and carrying walking sticks.
We dropped anchor by the island, not a shop in sight; seagulls, swallows and puffins; wrong boat, wrong time, gutted.
Angie, I was born 1951 in Mayday Hospital Croydon, and in 1970 I married Jon. Forty six years later we are retired and living in Spain. We have produced four lovely children, and have five grandchildren...so far! We consider ourselves blessed, we have had exciting and fruitful lives doing this and that, nothing ‘fame worthy’ just two ordinary people, enjoying life. I have finally finished writing my memoir, and hope to be published next year.
