Saturday Centus - Week 16

This is week 16 of Saturday Centus themed writing meme.
This week the prompt and the title of the story is . . .
What I did over my Summer Vacation.
The Rules are: Your story must be written in first person AND must be exactly 100 words long. It can be fact or fiction.


What I did over my Summer Vacation.

I walked along the waters edge, crashing waves and soft sand a balm for a city girl like me. I made my way up the steep track and along towering cliffs up toward the lighthouse, sunbaked under the cobalt blue sky. I sat on the soft green grass and listened to the gulls as they wheeled overhead playing in the thermals. I gazed out to the horizon as the fiery sun slipped lazily down to the ocean, then watched as purple gave way to the black star studded night . . .

I sat at home, eyes closed, dreaming. . . and I was there.

Oh, this was beautiful.

This is as close as I got to a vacation this year as well.

Yours was a whole bunch better than the one I imagined for myself.

So I'm going to just visualize myself in your story, too.

I'll bring the cupcakes!

Thanks for linking.
