Seeing Things Clearly – What Pegman Saw

Good Monday, my peeps!  Was “oot and aboot” on Friday and Saturday (as you may know if you read my post…) and yesterday was working the crazy Father’s Day supper at the club.  I hurt. Everywhere.  This schlepping of tables and chairs and stuff… As a result, I’m a tad late in participating in this week’s Pegman (having missed the last two!)

Kept things light this week…  Thanks to both Josh and Karen for hosting this weekly special.

This week Pegman takes us to Taşlıçay, Ağrı, Turkey. You’re welcome to Karen’s street view and photo spheres anywhere within its borders to write your story. The Pegman challenge is to write 150 words or less inspired by the prompt.

Once your piece is polished, share it with others using the Linkup below. Reading and commenting on others’ work is part of the fun!

Seeing Things Clearly

Scuba diving was their thing, their passion.  It was the reason their relationship still held after all these years.  Whenever they had differences, they would suit up and dive in, letting the water wash away any possible resentments, the bubbles from their tanks capturing all negativity and bringing them up to the surface where they would pop and disperse.

Twenty years into their relationship, they had visited countless masses of water, seen unimaginable species of fauna and flora.

“Hey, wanna try Balik Lake in Turkey?  I know we usually go for salt water, but this one is super clear, 70 metres at its deepest and 2250 metres above sea level.  Would definitely be something new.”

“We’re gonna freeze our buns off!”

“Nah, we’ll go in summer – though the option does exist to dive under the ice.  Wouldn’t that be cool?”

“Cool, eh?  Funny girl.” He gave her a big kiss. “Let’s go!”

  1. Q,

    You mean, no snorkeling? Diving? As in deep water? LOL.

    You worked that pic deftly, I must say. So if that’s the fluff of the matter, I can imagine you’d REALLY go deep if left to your own devices. Indeed.

    Peace and blue waters

  2. I love the light-hearted tone of this piece. Your phrase “the bubbles from their tanks capturing all negativity and bringing them up to the surface where they would pop and disperse,” is a wonderful image.

  3. I like how you went light this week — nice change from the rest of my week, sigh… Love the title of this one. And how nice, that the couple has a go-to activity that helps keep them together and smooth things out. I have known plenty of couples who would have benefited from something like that.

  4. Dear Dale,

    You make me want to go snorkeling in Turkey. Heck. I’d go snorkeling just about anywhere the water’s clear. How well I understand the water washing away resentment. Lovely stories on so many levels…or should I say at any depth? Five out of five freestyle strokes. 😉

  5. “It was the thing that held them together” made me think, if scuba diving is all that holds them together, is this really the setup for a huge breakup, or even a murder? Too much Netflix, I guess. Beautiful shot, so to speak. 😊

    • Yanno… maybe it’s just that thing they have in common that makes them realise they have it good… maybe too much Netflix 😉
      I hear ya. That shot drew me in…
