Theres an elderly man watching the boat drive away. He doesn't feel too well. Lois and Ann took a weekend vacation at Maritime Inn on the Lake. Lois has not been feeling well because he has terminal cancer. Because of this, they could only take short trips to the lake versus the long trips they used to take. Today was a bright and sunny day on the beach. As the boat was heading on to the other side of the shore it left wakes and ripples on the water. Lois was thinking as he watched, of his life he shared with Ann. There were some waves that sparkled and some dark spots as well. Lois thought of these waves as the times he shared with her both happy and sad. Some days were sunny and some were overcast. As he reflected, he knew the boat would not return and was heading to the other side. Just then he gets a call from Ann. "Lets take a walk on the beach and find pretty stones." And off they went, strolling hand in hand along the beach. Ann suggested "How about we splurge on dinner tonight and have a lobster dinner" Lois gave her a big hug and said "sounds good". He looked back at the boat and saw it was not heading back to the shore, but was circling around and heading back.
