Being in Maine Without Sharkey
Posted by Francesca
The last time we went to Skylands, Martha thought it best that Sharkey remain back home at the farm. Sharkey had a bug bite that she scratched too much and developed a rash on her neck. Because we were concerned, G.K. and I licked her rash, but that just made things worse. How were we to know? So, Sharkey stayed home with the housekeeper and we really missed her up in Maine.
1 Francesca - I know you're sad that Sharkey couldn't come to Skylands, but I think you should stop moping around.
2 What? Is it so obvious that I'm sad?
3 I have an idea that may cheer you up. Let's go to the beach!
4 G.K. - This was a very good idea. I love all the salty smells on the beach and I don't even mind that it's raining.
5 And it's so much fun hopping from rock to rock.
6 And speaking of rocks, it's always fun to see the piles of stones that people make called cairns. These are usually made to mark trails, but here, they're just for fun.
7 It's very impressive that the stones stay together like that. You know, G.K., Sharkey really likes cairns and I really wish she were here to see these. I miss her so much.
