The Weekly Photo Challenge is spare.
Oh! Please! Spare me a trip to the dentist. It isn’t easy when I have a toothache.
It involves catching the early ferry for an hour’s trip to the dentist on the mainland.
The extra boats are lined up at the dock waiting for passengers later in the day.
There is ample room at the beachfront laundromat near the dock for the women to launder their clothes early in the morning.
The cattle in the distance receive their lagniappe of fresh water. ( Who knew the word lagniappe is a synonym for spare?)
I wish this pain would let me off the hook! How many people can say this is the way they travel to the dentist?
Leaving my island of peace is the only emergency option. Bye, bye, Ometepe. I may return minus one tooth.
Bountiful and lanky clouds cover Ometepe on my way to the dentist.
Theresa takes the chair first. But that doesn’t mean I am absolved. I’m next.
My poor tooth couldn’t be spared. But, oh what a relief. No more pain. Hey buddy, can you spare an orange for me for my ride back to Ometepe Island?
I’ve had more than enough for one day. It’s great to return to my island of peace, pain-free.
What is your trip to the dentist like?
