Beach reading: If only it could be summer again

Saturday morning a light rain fell, adding to the chilly, fall mood. Beach season was truly over. Harley didn’t want to leave. If only it could be summer again, with her children home all day and the laziness of it accessible to them all. Hoping she’d have the upcoming summer to enjoy, she ended the speculation, refusing to allow anything to mar the peace she had, in part due to her husband’s attention the night before, hoping they’d been discreet enough. He’d whispered to her,
“This is just a matinee for what’s in store for you when we get home.” She didn’t have the heart to tell him she’d wished they could stay in Sea Isle forever.
Needing coffee but not wanting to disturb Jason while he slept, she stayed in bed, remembering everything she could about the previous day. During their walk on the beach, little Devon found a razor clamshell; a long, curved single shell.
“Devon wins!” Tina yelled, the others crowding around her, clapping.

The experience had accomplished a miracle for her little girl who behaved like a princess all evening, never uttering a whine. Smiling, Harley wanted more memories for her littlest child, with positivity and happiness surrounding her.
