My response to the Ragtag Community prompt: DAMP
Dear Cousin Francie,
Well, Lily and I arrived back home yesterday from our two-week trip to the South seas. I know you would have loved it! I can’t tell you how many times Lilly and I said we wished you were there sharing the great times with us.
We boarded our boat on a lovely, sunny day. For the first couple of days we were travelling not far from a gorgeous luxury yacht.
Lilly and I chose the economy package, so our boat wasn’t as high-class, but we managed quite well, though it was a little more work. We had all the showers we wanted, but washroom facilities weren’t the best.
At times the wind picked up and the seas got a bit wild, which made the voyage an exciting challenge for our captain and crew.
We expected a shower or two even in those tropical climes but we were prepared for nature’s surprises and enjoyed our trip in spite of the occasional sprinkle.
We visited the local markets and chatted with the vendors:
And stopped at other tourist spots in the city:
Some of our mates managed to get some unique selfies.
On days at sea with nothing else to do, we invented a fun guessing game. We called it, “Who’s behind the door?”
And of course we were delighted to catch glimpses of the creatures playing in the sea around us:
Oh, yes, dear cousin, you certainly missed the thrill of a lifetime —and all because you weren’t willing to leave the comforts of home. Baah! Next time we go, you’re coming along and no excuses.
