Sunday 160. Vistas

The Fens’ flat landscape holds a bleak beauty and produces hardy people. Sons of the soil. Land of Oliver Cromwell, who overthrew a king. Land of my ancestors.

Sunday 160 is a weekly challenge hosted by The Monkey Man, to write a story in exactly 160 characters.

I live the history of your land. Kind if an ominous shot, but I see more blue sky there than in my own skies. Thanks for playing along with the Sunday 160.
