Story

It was a beautiful morning in September as sun rose on the horizon casting elongated shadows along the park trail.  John set out for a long walk through the wooded area to admire the flowers that were blooming.  In the distance he spotted a small clump that was a light molasses in colour. Intrigued by their colour he approached them and knelt down.  They had a tropical smell to them like a fruit salad filled with Pineapples, Kiwis, Papayas, pears and cherries, or maybe it just seem that way because hunger was now taking over his thoughts.

“I should grab some of those pancakes before I started out” he thought to himself as he took a sip of a little water.

He got up to head to the seaside. He loved to walk along the shoreline to see what the tide had brought in.  He noticed something that looked like a small child almost the size of a baby lying on the beach wrapped in seaweed. Picking up his pace to investigate he realized it was an abandoned cabbage patch doll. 

“I wonder if anyone is missing this little one.” He picked it up and brushed off the seaweed and sand. 

When he looked up he suddenly noticed in the distance a small shark with no fin.  “Why is poaching shark fins worse this year?  It is folklore that shark fins have any medicinal purpose.”  His anger roses as he came upon the poor creature. Knowing he had to report this, he pulled his cell phone out and calls games and wildlife. 

“Hello.  Yes I found a young shark on the shoreline near the Tequila and Wine Pub on Shoreside Drive.  Thank you, so you do not need me to stay by?  Great, have a wonderful day”

It had been quite the morning and hunger had now overtaken him. He decided to head back. 

“Honey, I am home!!” He exclaimed as he walked in.

“How was walk, John?”

“Well let me tell you over a delicious plate of pancakes and bacon.” His stomach growled in agreement.
