A little bit of nonsense…

for Sunday Photo Fiction


It was nice of him to offer me a lift on his yacht. I’d always wanted to visit the uninhabited island across the bay. Off we went, bobbing up and down. He shouted ‘duck’. I looked to port and starboard, but couldn’t see one. It was then the boom swung round, bonked me on the head and knocked me overboard. He didn’t notice and just kept going.

Anyway, I swam ashore and had a nice time wandering around the island. I paddled in a stream, picked a daisy, drew my name in the sand, picked another daisy then got bored. Then it occurred to me – I was marooned. What now?

This kind of thing must have happened before because some thoughtful soul had left a blackboard and chalk on the rocks. I wrote HELP on it and hoped someone would see it.

Then she ran along the shore until we shot into the sky. Weeeee! I stretched out my arms like aeroplane wings. Bad move. I did a free fall down into the briny.

I suppose I could get to like this island.

    All in all it doesn’t seem like a bad place to spend the rest of your life! 😉

      I am actually think of moving there – as long as there’s wi-fi available!

    I think we all wonder what we would do on a desert island all by ourselves. Fun take on the prompt, Keith.

    Heeheehee! It might be nice to get away from it all for a little while, but i think a short visit to such an island is best. Fun story!

    Who would mind to get lost in an uninhabited island if rescue is as beautiful?

    I stayed a few days on Aruba a few years back. Not sure if I’d want to live there. Spotty wifi.
    Just give me some kind of water near by. I’ve got a little creek out back now, still seeing some ducks actually – not quite a sandy beach and winters are cold, but ‘There’s no place like home!’

    A fun read, a bit dreamy – to bad I have to wake up.

        Since I cannot have the sea, I see a creek.
        Water in any form is so soothing 🙂

    I smiled and then smiled again, great storytelling.
