This week’s short story challenge

This week’s short story challenge is a photo I took of the breakwater harbour in Napier, New Zealand.

Use the photo to inspire a 150-200 word super-short story – a proper one, with beginning, middle, end and punchline (all super-short stories gotta have a punchline) – and post it on your blog, with the prompt photo and a link back to this blog for others to pick up and join in the fun. Of course the story can be about anything.

The breakwater harbour, Napier, New Zealand.

In January 1945, the German submarine U-862 under Korvettenkapitan Heinrich Timm sailed past this harbour, looking for targets. The Wikipedia claim that the boat entered the harbour is totally bogus – it wasn’t deep enough, or big enough for a submarine to manoeuvre in.
