Five Hundred Yards

An elderly couple sits down in the shade for a while. 

They take the weight off their feet and watch the world go by. 

His leg gently rests against her knee.

Years ago they walked La Croisette a small hand each between them. 

A little girl lifted and swung every ten steps along the way.

Just ten minutes sat here and off again.
