TREADING WATER By Kathryn Gardner





Sue and Carol are lifeguards.


Their routine is simple and their dreams seems equally so as they spend their days keeping the morning swimmers, the lone dog walkers, the evening strollers, and the day trippers safe. Day after day they sit, they wait, and they watch the world go by.


But when your job is to watch, when do you actually get to live?


And what are they waiting for? A sign of Danger?


Maybe that’s just what they need.      



Each and every morning a lone figure appears on the sand; arriving early to make sure he gets the best treasure. They watch him, transfixed as he is wafting his equipment, listening for the beep... If only there were a way to get him to come over. If only there were a way to get him to say something. Anything.


Treading Water is a sweet tale about grabbing the bull by the horns, taking a risk, and making something – anything, happen. With snappy dialogue, moments of slapstick and some great laugh out loud moments, this is a hilarious and truly heart wrenching almost -love story.  .
