Sometimes when I go to the beach, I stay on the shore, paddle in the shallows, hunt for shark’s teeth, and sketch the things I see. Other times, I catch a glimpse of a tail splashing and breaking the surface. At first, I think it’s a dolphin, but then a face framed by wet red hair pops up and winks. I imagine she’s the sort who loves doing back flips in the water, churning all the bubbles around her. We all know someone like that.
