View from the Balcony 15/11/09
Another great sight presents itself for comment. A warm light wisp of a breeze is coming off the calm sea and onto the land. A light bank of clouds stretch across the horizon like a finishing tape for a running event. But it is far too late as the sun has already climbed onto the podium and taken first place as the centrepiece of the scene. Late breaking blue waves are gently running up the golden sand of the shoreline, kissing the beach and then departing from sight. The Point is being shared by several hopeful surfers and a number of small fishing boats with the surfers staying closer to the rocky land edge. The Esplanade waits quietly for the first sound of happy users. Hinterland has a range of greens as the valleys are still lightly covered in soft mist. Calmness is present.
