Today I was walking the beach and passed by this guy with gentle eyes and a kind smile. I had thought about him as I walked up the beach wondering if he still might be sitting in the same position as I walked back.

Half an hour later and he was still there, I passed him by for a second time and our eyes locked. Whilst I gave him a smile, I kept walking past.

Another 100 metres up the beach and I thought ‘what have I got to loose’. So I turned around and start to walk towards him. As I got closer I wanted to turn around and walk in the opposite direction. But it was too late, he had seen me walking towards him.

As I approached I said “are you here by yourself?” (I thought this was a smart move as it would be awkward to find out his girlfriend was swimming close by).

He replied “yes” but I detected an accent. So I asked “do you speak English?” Then instantly regretted what I had said. Of course he spoke English, he just answered my question! Idiot!

I asked a few more questions & then started to walk away. He said “where are you going?” To which I shrugged coz I really did know. He said “why don’t you sit for a while”

We chatted for about half an hour as the sun was setting before we parted ways.
