Nothing but sea for ever.
Turquoise, with occasional frothy splashes of white.
No distinction between where it ends and the sky starts.
Sun beating down relentlessly, reflecting on the swell.
Just the odd seagull to break the monotony, and intermittent rollers.
"I hope they realise soon that they left without me" thought the scuba diver.
Friday 55 Flash Fiction is brought to you by G-man (Mr Knowitall). The idea is you write a story in exactly 55 words. If you want to take part pop over and let G-man know when you've posted your 55.
I love Fridays! lol! Great one dear!
As usual there was the unexpected... I bet the scuba diver thought the same...
Oh dear! I'd like to think that could never happen but you just never know do you? Excellent twist in the tale this week!
I went all nostalgic.
I'll be at the ocean this weekend.
Mines up too.
beautiful and terrifying at the same time, very good 55!!
love your blog template!!
oh my...that could be a long swim home...smiles. nice 55.
Great ending to that. Loved it.
Neat twist. This story should be read while listening to the Jaws movie music!

Another BRILLIANT one, m'dear!
The ending totally surprised me!
It reminded me of the movie, "Open Water." Great film!
Thanks for sharing!
