This post follows directly on from the previous.
(Stamps and image of bathing beauty – all from Redlead Paperworks)Then we have Cybil who leads a more solitary existence by the seashore. I am sure you have spotted her, she is slightly serious of face and has the deepest frown lines etched into her forehead from squinting up at the beaming sun. This young woman seems contentto stroll along the shoreline, as she whiles away the hours, always to be seen clutching a seashell in her handas she listens to the song of the sea. It is often said that she can be heard singing along to themelody of the sea.
The final and eldest sister left to introduce is Daphne.She is dark of hair but fair of skin and will not dare take a step outside unless she dons her sunhat which of course is fashioned in the shape of a seashell. Many might snicker behind their hands as Daphne passes by as she favours a bathing costume from an era long before she was born but for Daphne, she is brimming over with happiness which surely does float like the waves of the ocean that she simply holds her head aloft as she walks on by towards her beloved ocean. It has been said that Daphne has a penchant for the young fishermen as she lingers beside their boats but I will let you into a little secret, Daphne is eager for another pearl to add to her collection and knows that with a mere flutter of her dark lashes, a beautiful oyster will be passed her way and it might just be her lucky day to discover a shimmering pearl nestled inside. Whether today is her lucky day or not, Daphne’s happiness will never be known to wane because she knows that the ocean will always be there to bring happiness to her life.
Thank you so much for your visit.
