FMF Link-up :: Vacation

How would she break it to him that the money for their vacation had been spent?

They were supposed to celebrate their silver wedding anniversary in the Caribbean. They haven’t been there and they thought it would be a nice present for their anniversary next year. But then situations changed. Their daughter has just got engaged and they were planning to get married next year, too. Both the daughter and the groom to be are still studying so they don’t really have money for the wedding. The groom’s parents promised to pay half of the expenses for the wedding, so they promised to pay half, too. There would be a big reception where they were studying and there would also be a second reception in their own country, plus all the other expenses for the flight, honeymoon, clothes, photographers, band, etc. She would eventually break it to him that the money meant for their holiday had been spent. She’s sure he’d understand.

100 Word Wednesday: The sky is blue

The sky is blue, which is so true
The sun is bright, we’re all alright
The sea is cool, better than the pool
Zoe and Yanna playing, Beng and Amy swimming
Eating adobo and rice, Zoe’s hungry, she ate twice
Packed lunch from hotel, made us peckish from the smell
Lovers paddling on the boat, kayaking and banana float
Island hopping is quite fun, everything’s nice with the sun
Splashing water to each other, look at the colour- it’s azure

Blue sky
Friends at sea
Swimming and eating
Kayaking
Island hop
Like creatures of the water
One fine, lovely day

Amazing view from the top!

#Bathwater Ten Things of Thankful

Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille, June 13th 2018, on the beach

Such a lovely day on a beautiful tropical paradise. Enjoying my time walking on a nice sandy beach. From the beachfront cottage I have some gorgeous views of the ocean. Snorkelling is fun and exciting. House reef is fantastic. Sea water is crystalline and very clear. Swimming with the fish, that’s heaven! A school of fish, barracuda, angel fish, sting rays, jelly fish, small shark, and fish of different species and colours. It is just amazing!

with bare feet
strolling along the beach
with Him, that’s heaven

#SoCS June 9/18 – “start with a noun”

Holiday! Hello everyone, just got back from last week’s holiday in Italy. We took the bus from Munich to Limone, Italy and stayed for 6 days, came back last night. It was wonderful! It rained the first day, otherwise, it was warm, around 28 to 32 degrees every day. Lake Garda is simply amazing! We took a boat from Limone to Malcesine and enjoyed walking around the town. We also walked to the lemon grove and other churches. Lots of restaurants, shops, pizzeria, etc. The food was brilliant – fish, sea food, pasta, pizza, ice-cream, coffee, white wine, etc. Here are some photos. Have a great weekend everyone!
