The Girl from a Fishing Village

Day 56

Once upon a time there was a little girl who lived in a gorgeous land in the middle of South America. She was the best boat driver in her whole village. She drove her family’s boat while her father and two brothers went fishing. While she was out in the boat she saw many interesting sights. She loved to see the long grasses growing on the sides of the river and the beautiful branches that reached their limbs down to let their scraggily branches touch the top of the water. She saw many interesting types of fish and large river creatures that she made up interesting stories about which she told her fathers and brothers about as they worked to clean their fish at the end of the night. She loved to watch the colors in the sky as the day changed from morning to midday to evening. As she drove her boat she went to many villages and met many different types of people. She met old ladies who gave her beaded necklaces and bracelets, and men and their wives who cooked meals for her and her brothers and father while they waited for rainstorms to pass by. She met other young boys and girls who she played games and hide and go seek with. The little girl met old men, working on their ropes and nets for their boats. She traveled very far and wide and decided that she wished to have her very own boat so she began saving all of her money and all the beaded necklaces and interesting gifts that she received and put them in a special place in her room at home. Whenever she had spare time and was waiting to drive the boat she began to make her own beaded necklaces and then her mother began to sell them for her while she was driving the fishing boat. As the years passed by she earned enough money to purchase her own boat, and she met a man that she fell in love with. They began to travel together far and wide to new villages and find interesting things to bring to home for her mother to sell. Eventually they had enough money to get married and they opened a brand new store in the middle of her village with many things to sell. She and her husband lived happily ever after and traveled the entire world finding the most beautiful things.
