For more Adventures of Linus and Margaret
“Whale!” Margaret shrieked.
Linus was equally as excited but, at nine, he had to show more self-control than his younger sister. There was a book in his hands and by the time he looked up, the whale was gone.
The wind whipped his hair into his face as they captain accelerated. It made it hard to finish the chapter.
“Linus! We’re getting closer.”
“Leave me alone, Mar.”
Then, from the direction of the ocean a spray of water hit his cheek. He turned his head and, closer than he ever imagined, was an eye.
Margaret laughed. “See, whale.”
