Ventured into the blazing sun this aft to stroll the hundred feet or so to the seaside. Nothing too ambitious you understand, just thought I might sit in the sea breeze and have a quiet read.
Then this three-foot long fellow came along, seeming suspiciously unafraid.
We stared at each other for a while. He began to take an interest in the toes peeking out of my sandals. I rethought my position and retired as gracefully as possible. After all, he lives here, I don't.
Perhaps I'll read indoors for a bit. Just until it cools down.
