A day at Flinders Ocean beach on the last days of the Summer we didn’t have. Little kids on surfboards giggling with excitement when they stand up. Dad hauls them though minute wavelets with giant strands of kelp. The splash and squeal of hurt pride when they inevitably fall off. Sounds of encouragement, “keep trying” from proud parents.
Snorkelers making the most of perfect conditions look up to see an odd zombie lurching down to the water’s edge.
“Jason I told you to bring your gear up here, we’re leaving”.
The zombie slumps. Regains composure slightly and trails after mum.
A Drabble is a story told in 100 words. No more, no less.
