Our Beach, But Not For Much Longer

Me: It was lovely to see all those families enjoying our beach, wasn’t it?

Nell: It’s not going to be our beach for much longer.

Me: I know. It does seem harsh that we’re banned from May until October.

Nell: You and Kev can go there whenever you like.

Me: I know we can but it isn’t the same without you.

Nell: I suppose the dog beach has its attractions.

Me: The walk there is lovely.

Nell: There are a few too many dogs, perhaps, but otherwise it’s fine.

Me: You can’t say that, Nell. Not when we arrive with at least four dogs, not to mention the occasional llama.

Nell: Llamas don’t need to go on the dog beach. They’re allowed on the main one.

Me: I don’t think they are.

Nell: Does it say they aren’t?

Me: No.

Nell: Well then.

Me: Just because it doesn’t say they aren’t doesn’t mean they are.

Nell: It does in my book.

Me: They can’t list every animal.

Nell: I’m going to send the llamas down to the main beach on 1st May and we shall see what happens.

Me: They’ll probably be fined, Nell.

Nell: There’s no earthly point in fining a llama.

Me: Why not?

Nell: They never pay. Everyone knows that. Llamas don’t give a jig about rules.

Me: You mean fig.

Nell: Don’t bring fruit into this.

Me: If I didn’t know better I’d say you were trying to cause chaos.

Nell: Chaos? Me? I would never do such a thing.

Me: We both know you would, Nell. You have a naughty side.

Nell: All I know is llamas love the main beach. Plenty of room for cartwheeling.

Me: You won’t really do it.

Nell: Never challenge a senior Labrador. You will always lose.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
