a-l-l d-a-y l-o-n-g
demanding trees bow low,
forcing sand along the beach,
whipping washing to stand at attention
completely U-P-R-I-G-H-T on the clothesline,
hot ceaseless blast
It blows and makes a day at the beach less attractive than yesterday.
Yesterday the water was warm; today it’s cold.
Yesterday the sand was smooth; today it stings your legs and flies up in your eyes.
Children return to the motorhome a bit miserable.
I have stayed inside (coz it’s too windy outside) embroidering French knots, content.
Time on the road: none at all!
Distance covered: okm
