It was a late night last night and so it was with sleep in my eyes that I fully opened the glass sliding doors and stepped out onto the Balcony. The sudden contact of the cold tiles on my feet quickly brought me to life.
The air is still with only a zephyr of movement passing by giving the leaves of the Balcony greenery a slight touch, much like a feather brushed across the forehead leaves a slight tingle.
The sea is calm with barely a ripple showing on the surface with the waves only breaking at the last moment before they rush up the beach only to disappear into the golden sands to be forever lost.
Along the horizon, stretched out across the scene from left to right a large bank of heavy grey cloud is putting up a solid wall of resistance as in not allowing the rising sun to be seen as it immediately indicates its presence as it shoots out golden rays of light into the heavens.
The clear sky above is in the throes of changing from a dark blue through the spectrum of orange and pinks into light blue as the sun has now ascended above the so called grey wall of resistance.
At the Point all is quiet as without the chance of being able to ride a wave or two there was no incentive for any surfer to be out on the water.
However, it is a different story when it comes to the Esplanade as a number of walkers and joggers are nikeing along at various speeds. Even the beach is playing host to the occasional walker as well.
At the rear, the Hinterland has completely discarded its overnight covering of mist and is already flexing its greenery for all to admire.
Yes, another great day is upon us here at Burleigh!!
