Empty #writephoto

Sue’s #writephoto prompt this week…

It wasn’t often that she got to the beach ahead of the rest of the crowds, but today was one of those days. The morning mists were just clearing, and the sun was starting to shine.
Looking at the empty run of golden sand, with the tufts of green grass inviting her to sit, she took a step forward.
Then stopped.
Those shadows.
Glancing to her right, she expected to see other standing there. Drat, she wasn’t the first after all.
But there was no one there. The whole beach was empty.
Yet the shadows remained.
And they appeared to be moving towards her.
Footprints appeared in the sand.
She needed no other warning.
Tightening her grip on her beach bag, she sped off, screaming to no one in particular.

    Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the beach! Nicely unsettling.
