‘The Tall Ships’ by Evelyn Robertson, Age 11Years

‘A Sailor’s Story’ by Lucy Rush, Age 12 Years

Finally! I’m home! Although I’m happy to be back, something doesn’t seem right. The air seems empty; like it’s longing for something that left years ago, that never came back. ‘Jude!’ I snap out of my thoughts as Nana comes up, her eyes sparkling. ‘I’ve missed you!’ she says, ‘And you’ll never guess what?
