Damp

Opal has been visiting since the fall, when her family of origin asked us to look after her while they went off on their annual nautical peregrinations.  We all knew the visit was going to end some day, but both Min (Opal’s carve-sister) and Agathe (her block sister) have been dreading the moment when Opal’s family of origin return to Northern climes and sends for her.  The three of them can be quite irrepressible, but there has been a wistful atmosphere in the Hitty cupboard lately.

  The Quimper Hitty human suggested a Cheering Walk to the beach, but the sisters sat glumly wondering how soon the ocean waves would waft Opal’s family to our shores again…
