#BeachRockHiking for #50Plusers @KohLanta

Prompt:   Write a story or CNF (creative non-fiction) piece that uses tweets to advance the story line—or maybe these form the entire story. I encourage playfulness: use visual elements, like #hashtags, date-markers, and posts. (From the Iowa online writing course I’m taking: Hidden Meanings: Creative Fiction, Non-fiction, and Facts)

#Thailand #humid Despite intense midday heat, decided to go with Theo and Ina on short outing to see the surroundings via the road on @KohLanta.

#Thailand @KohLanta Just had mini-lunch #porkwithvegetablesandrice at roadside #café/#boutique/#travelagency. Pretty white #SiameseCat. Tried on clothes but too hot to decide.

#Thailand #FrenchBakery, we dream of a real #cake, so decide to walk up the road to find the place. A real #walk after eating feels good. Glad I’m wearing my #TevaSandals and decided to bring #water!

#Toofar to walk to #bakery! After going #up-and-down #ThailandHills in the #humidheat and avoiding oncoming #traffic of #trucks and #motorcycles, we give up and decide to walk back via the beach.

#CliffTop #restaurant had #ricketystairs down to #beautifulbeach. We had all our stuff with us, phones, backpack, money, so #didn’tswim.

#StupidAdventures #Thailand. Never attempt rockclimbing with #flipflops or #Birkenstock sandals. Glad I have #TevaSandals but am afraid for Ina and Theo. Maybe not too late to go back the way we came? #Regret!

#DumbAssStupid #ThailandAdventures Theo is ahead of us, but I am afraid to go forward or back. There are #sharpclam shells on every single #rock, and they are #slipperyrocks. This would be the #moststupidwaytodie.

#SlightlyEncouraged. Ina reminded me to just keep putting one foot forward at a time and #Don’tThinkTooMuch. #BetterMindset. We half joke about calling a #HelicoptorRescue as we take a #WaterBreak.

#NoEndInSight. #FeelingFoolish. If the kids did this I’d kill them. The #lowtide is not fucking low enough. #SunIsSetting. But I have no choice other than to continue to follow.

Audrey Weinberg @studyleaks – 15 min
#AlmostThere. We get to a part where we can finally walk in the water. #PleaseNoMoreAdventures and #WatchOut for #SeaUrchins!

Audrey Weinberg @studyleaks – 7 min
#CrisisManagement in the #Ocean is my thing. The #SunIsSetting but we are almost at the beach near our #resort. I guide the others forward and help them #AvoidSeaUrchins.

Audrey Weinberg @studyleaks – 2 min
#EmergencyAverted! Call off the #Lifeguard, we made it goddamit! Theo says, “What big #crabs and Ina and I simultaneously reply, “Those aren’t big!” and nearly #falldownlaughing.

Audrey Weinberg @studyleaks – 30 sec
#GroupHug #ThailandAventures in @KohLanta. We just invented a new @Booking.com experience: #BeachRockClimbing for #50plusers! #Heroes!

#TheEnd #TrueStory
