Allen's Zoo

Isle of the Dolls


I went out early one morning this weekend for my walk. Earlier than my usual early. Before the sun had risen. When I got to the promenade there were a few cars. Another car drove up and three young girls got out. They were young. Young enough to make me wonder which one was old enough to drive? I also thought we must be the only people out. As they passed me they acted as guilty as heck…like they were hiding something. Shrug. One said “Hi!”, really just way to put on a face. She was the one with very long wavy hair. “Good morning”. They went down to the beach and I walked by. On my way back home I saw one of the group was sitting on the beach. The others were in the water. They were only a silhouette in the dark. Must have been cold. Skinny dipping?

oh! you met Alcott’s ‘Little Women” it seems- Beth. Jo and Meg. Little Amy must have been home!

Although I’ve not read “Little Women” I’m at the library now. I’m going to borrow a copy and that’ll be my reading.🙂
By the way, I guess you saw, your comment went into spam again. Good thing I’m watchful.

I like your carefree visual interpretations, Allen.

Thank you, Karen!🙂
Guess you noticed your comment wasn’t there. It was in spam. You and a few others this happens to. I’m going to try to have it fixed…in the meantime, I’ll check my spam pretty closely.

What a fun way to portrait three “guilty” kids. Like small dolls that shouldn’t be driving. You captured their youthful and the almost reckless character delightfully in this drawing.
