View from the Balcony 20/11/09
Stillness is in the damp air. A thick haze features along the horizon line and heavy dark grey and black rainclouds dominate the sky. The almost glassy sea is caressing the golden sands of the shoreline with late breaking waves that lazily saunter up the beach and disappear from view in the same way as Nivea soft intensive moisturising creme is absorbed by the skin. The white glowing sun has rising into the sky but is only infrequently seen as it is masked by the cloud cover. The Point is free from surfers and their boards and the Esplanade only has a solitary jogging buddy couple pounding the pathway. The Hinterland, for the first time that I can recall, is totally covered by a thick screen of light grey mist. An eerie sight all around.
