>the light was perfect. the setting just right. the sun cast an amber glow all around. just then a gigantic cloud shadow passed over us, and the silver light shined through at the far end. a ship or two passed by in the distance. perfectly framed.
the protagonist – harsh at his excited best to be at the beach yet again. the accompanying characters – his dad, calm as a cucumber and his mom – paranoid as hell.
and me? i was just hanging around, kicking myself for not having my camera to capture it all.
