View from the Balcony 09/12/09
A gentle onshore breeze is keeping the temperature down. The sky is filled with clumps of grey cloud. The sun has ascended into the heavens at a pace that is both regal and forceful. However, due to the large cloud mass, any sighting of the sun needs to be placed on hold and be verified at a later time. The sea has a slight swell to it and is sending late breaking waves direct to the shore line, where they tumble over one another in the excitement of the moment. The persistency of the suns endeavours to be noticed has borne fruit, and the large cloud formation is now disbursing due to the application of the warmth of the sun. There is a band of hardy surfers mingling around the rocky outcrop that comprises the Point, whilst pedestrian traffic is quite sparse along the Esplanade. Clear blue sky sits above the Hinterland, with the last vestiges of the overnight mist dissolving to allow the rich greens of the hills and valleys to reveal themselves. A hot day is upon us.
