On the first day of October I’d worked from home and not really seen daylight. It was glorious outslde. I checked the sea conditions because I’ve watched far too many of those lifeboat rescue problems. The sea was calm so I decided to go for an after work swim.
There were two other women down at the cove, and a cormorant. No seal though. My fellow swimners and I shared our fear of him. One of them told me that her friend had actually been properly bitten. She’d worn shoes with a shiny silver stripe on them and I think one of them was mistaken for a mackerel!
As I swam out I spotted some chrysanthemums floating in the sea, two tangled together. I tried to rescue them to photograph but they shed too many petals. I’ve borrowed this picture from Pixabay instead.
This is not the first time that I’ve found flowers in the sea. Being a mad hippie chick, of course I see them as a sign! Just over three years ago I found a single red rose and then Hot Stuff turned up just afterwards. I wonder what these crysanthemums foretell?
