minorphrases:

Mariel had been to the beach before. This was just as bad as the last time, possibly worse. The endless ebbing and flowing reminded her of the unstoppable passing of time, she wished the waves would break over her and drag under. She beckoned to the ocean, “just get it over with.” 
On the upside, since she had such uncanny luck with scratch offs she was able able to purchase 100 acres of sand, and a few miles of water as well. It was amazing what you could do with money these days. 

Loving this found photo / short story project!
