Inside the Mind of Isadora

Friday Fictioneers – Changing Marina


As soon as we approached the marina in St. Thomas, I could see his face turning red.

“Do you see this Laura Lee?”

“Yes, I do Max.”

“Things are changing. I used to love this little marina. Now, it’s always under construction and overcrowded with boats in every little space. It won’t be long before we won’t have a dock for our sailboat. I can recall when we’d be the eye candy for all who loved a good looking sailboat. Now, we can barely navigate around these obstacles.”

“Max, lookout. There’s a cruise ship coming; starboard side.”


Man overboard.

Author: Inside the Mind of Isadora

Intriguing, sensitive, mysterious, loving, artistic and crackling with excitement for life is a pretty good description of who I am. I just retired from the world of art where I sold my Artfully Designed Handmade Jewelry for 28 years; although, art will always be a part of who I am no matter what venue I choose to express it in.

  1. This made me laugh, I think the deadpan style of the narrator and the final line made it just so.

  10. Querida Isadora,

    So much for eye candy. Their Yacht just became a Yicht. Pride goeth before a crunch. Funny, although I doubt that Max is laughing. 😉 .
