I am staying at what feels like a guest house or small hotel. I’m trying to acquaint myself with the place and the people. It’s almost time to leave and I don’t feel as if I’ve done anything worthwhile.
I’m walking through the town – nothing of any particular interest stands out. I go to the beach. It is very, very early in the morning. I wonder what I am doing there so early. It’s not a very attractive beach or indeed a beautiful setting. As I sit in the sand still damp from the morning dew I notice sea shells all about me. There, glittering in the morning light is a shell which intrigues me. Although it’s only a shard of insignificant mother of pearl it remains remarkably beautiful. Next my attention is drawn to a really beautiful shell lying partly hidden in the sand it is hiding because it is alive and therefore vulnerable.
Spurred on by this discovery I look at the sand with new eyes. I find a pure white shell appears like a pair of angels wings. I carefully inspect the shell and discover nestled inside the angel’s wings is another shell, similar in shape but different. One of the smaller angel’s wings is damaged and I feel disappointed. It doesn’t feel like such a prize find now.
Encouraged by my findings I decide to pay more attention to my surroundings and to discover what other little treasures lie waiting for me.
On my return to the hotel, I realise that it is has turned to evening. The hotel guests are irritable and hungry as it would be impolite for them to have begun eating without me. I feel like a spoilt little rich girl as I change into my emerald green satin dinner dress.
The vintage style of dress indicates to me that this must be the 50’s
