Sixty-three words…

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





My mate drops white pebbles when rambling to help find his way back. 

Me? A compass, far more sensible. 

It says south-east. I want to go home, so I’ll head north-east, no, south-north, erm….

If I climb to that treetop I should be able to see the town. 

Oh, I can’t. 

Look, there’s a white pebble, and another. I think I’ll follow them.

    Indeed, sometimes technology fails but nature’s guidestones lead us home. Love the story and your reading!

    I’m thinking, if you don’t know your east from your west; your north from your south… best to follow the pebbled road!

    Fun response Keith. Following the pebbles, you will either catch up with your friend or find yourself at his house!

    I followed the pebbles too. Found ya both at the pub.

    I am a retired US Air Force master navigator. On the ground I am nearly useless. I have no “sense” of direction. One of my children is notoriously “directionally challenged”
    I was so surprised to discover that my phone has a compass. Does anyone know how to use them? 🙂
