Did you notice the ship?

Me: It was breathtakingly beautiful down on the beach, wasn’t it?

Nell: Did you notice the ship?

Me: The water was crystal clear and an almost tropical turquoise.

Nell: Here we go.

Me: We could have been stranded on some desert island.

Nell: No, we couldn’t. We drove there from home.

Me: You know what I mean.

Nell: I do not.

Me: And the darling puppies just swam and swam for the sheer joy of it. They looked like a pair of seals, or otters.

Nell: They certainly enjoyed themselves.

Me: If I had remembered to bring my bathing costume with me I would have joined them.

Nell: Good grief. It always takes you half an hour to put the thing on and even longer to take it off again.

Me: It’s ever so difficult getting changed on a beach, Nell.

Nell: Other people manage.

Me: I do love the water, though. And it looked so inviting. I think I might bring my swimming things next time.

Nell: Anyway, this is all well and good but did you notice the ship?

Me: You mean the tall one?

Nell: Yes.

Me: Of course I did. I even took some photos.

Nell: Do you realise whose ship it was?

Me: No.

Nell; Didn’t you notice the Beefies circling it?

Me: They always do that, in case they can steal some fish.

Nell: Did it look like a fishing vessel to you?

Me: No. It was far more romantic and piratey.

Nell: Exactly. Piratey is the word. If it actually exists.

Me: Oh, I see what you mean.

Nell: Yes. It belongs to Lionel King. He’s back.

Me: We knew he was around, unless you were expecting him to judge remotely.

Nell: But we didn’t know he was this close.

Me: No. Sorry.
