---- Me for the shore
« on: January 15, 2021, 01:52:45 am »
The two women took
stock of their cabin: they stood there in the shadow like
cave-dwellers: they spoke in undertones that the men
couldn't catch: they were no longer wives they were
sisters belonging to a different race. "You and I are not
wanted, old man," Halifax said. "They'll be all right now.
Me for the shore."
   (from The Heart of the Matter, by Graham Greene; a larger context is here; use ctrl-f to locate the sentence)

Please explain "Me for the shore".  What might be the complete sentence?  Thanks.  --- tk

It's me for ...  means My vote (for my own action) is for ....  . Thus It's me for the shore means I intend to go ashore.
