Nell: Just think of the secret beach.
Me: Yes. It’s a special place.
Nell: It is. Sometimes when the world is getting you down you just need to go there in your mind.
Me: Very true.
Nell: I like the fact that hardly anyone knows it is there.
Me: So do I.
Nell: Getting there isn’t easy.
Me: No, it isn’t.
Nell: But once you are there it is all worth while.
Me: Are we really talking about the secret beach, or is this some kind of metaphor?
Nell: Metaphor? It’s Monday, give me a break.
Me: I just wondered.
Nell: Have a cup of tea, look at the photos and think of happy times.
Me: Ok, sorry.
