Two score and ten words…

for Sammi’s Weekend Writing Prompt where the given word is Thalassic.




The beach is always busy in Summer.

In June, there’s a pirate festival, in July a boat race, August a fishing gala

In September a group of musicians perform a waterside concert. It always starts with Handel’s Water Music. Thalassic Band, they call themselves.

It’s a lovely stretch of water.




 * I wonder if anyone will spot the pun. I really stretched it this time!

    Great take on the prompt and the pun at a stretch – is it your ‘Thalassic Band’ 🙂

    A popular stretch indeed. So much going on. But, you know Keith, in summer by the beach…one has to seas the day!

    Another new word for me. I think you are quite the logomaniac and punster.

    My hat tip is followed by a bit of an eye roll. A fun fifty, Keith. 🙂

    Greek for salt/sea water. Couldn’t spell it out in Ancient Greek alphabet though….
    Thanks Keith, such a soothing image and sound.
