Me: Did you enjoy your visit to Kingsbridge?
Nell: I did. It is always lovely to watch the boats and relax in good company.
Me: You mean Kev, I suppose. The loving look and paw on leg says it all.
Nell: You were there too, but Kev and I do have a quiet understanding. That’s true.
Me: I know. I’m glad your paw has healed, Nell. No more Comfort Ring and your ears are clearing, too.
Nell: It is a relief. I need to walk on the beach again.
Me: Yes, we need the sand under our feet and the wind in our hair.
Nell: Here we go.
Me: The cry of the seagulls and the roar of the sea.
Nell: I’ll be crying in a minute if you don’t stop.
Me: The smell of salt in the air.
Nell: Salt doesn’t smell. Don’t be ridiculous. You probably mean seaweed. Wretched stuff.
Me: Yes. Sorry.
