I am having a holiday on the island of La Gomera, near Tenerife. On the beach in front of our hotel there is a large orange deflated dinghy lying abandoned. Nobody goes near it, nobody touches it.
The day we arrived, there was a dead body on the beach, covered in a white towel.
My mother saw it and said that at first, you wouldn't have known it was a dead body, you might have thought it was someone sleeping. But it didn't move and after a while a policeman came and then an ambulance.
