Good Samaritan

On New Year’s Day, while walking with friends on the beach between Seahouses and Beadnell, I lost my car key.

With increasing despair and a rising tide, we searched the beach for the key.

Finally we had to admit defeat and returned to the car to call the AA.

I cannot describe my joy when I discovered a good Samaritan had not only found the key, but also tracked down my car and left the key for me.

My New Year’s Day had been turned from deepest gloom to elation.

I wish my rescuer a very happy New Year, they certainly deserve it.
