Still Lost

“You’re right, the GPS sucks.”

“The map isn’t helping either.”

“How do you know?”

“That sign is pointing towards the Nature Reserve on the outskirts of town; we were supposed to be visiting the showroom in the centre of town!”

“Shall we retrace our steps then?”

“Let’s just go home.”


This is a continuation of last week’s story.

The photo prompt has been given by at the Friday Fictioneers hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields and the word prompt (Reserve) has been given by Denise Farley at the Girlie on the Edge.

  12. My husband doesn’t trust GPS. Old school. He loves paper maps. Maybe he’s right.
