View from the Balcony 26/01/2010
On this great Australia Day the Balcony welcomes me with a warm breeze that appears to be coming from the Hinterland and is passing by on its way out to the sea. Looking out to the horizon there are a few small whitish puff clouds that look like they have been pounded like a pizza base, flattened out, and stretched then littered across the light opaque blue sky. The sun has appeared and in doing so quickly stamped its authority as being the centre of attention. As it has risen heavenward, the small clouds that were close by have disappeared from view having just melted into the background. The light grey sea has a gentle rippled look to it. Small waves are only forming and appearing just metres from the golden sands of the shoreline, upon which when meeting they quickly embrace, only to be lost from sight as they melt into one. With only small waveettes running along the rocky outcrop that it the edge of the Point the surfers have declared this area a 'non surf' zone this morning. Casting my eye along the Esplanade, that too is light on human movement save that already there are a number of cars occupying the parking spaces that skirt the roadway. The Hinterland is removing the last remnants of last nights covering of light mist and is proudly reaching into the clear blue sky thereby displaying all its majestic hills and valleys to the world. It just leaves me to say Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, Oi,Oi,Oi!!
