Incoming Tide

 

As the water lapped around my knees I realised the entire stretch of beach was now deep under water.  I turned to look at the steep rock-face, wondering if a person could climb to the top before the water washed them out to sea. 

Further along the beach people were waving and shouting.  I couldn’t hear them.  The rainclouds darkened, reducing the light and I knew I had to do something soon.  One more good look around confirmed my decision.  I climbed back into my boat and started the motor.

The end
