I had the distinct pleasure of having the beach to myself that morning. The quiet was so consuming as the waters that rushed to shore breathed music to the ears.
I watched the sunrise, one of my most favorite thing to do, and thought about how as a teenager, I used to do the same thing where we lived north of Malaysia. It was one of the best times of my life.
We lived by the sea, and what a blessing that was.
I loved watching the sunset, loved waking up early on days there was no school, to catch the sunrise. I would be awed by its rising and setting. I would never miss them on weekends! I learnt so much about beauty from nature.
The early morning seagulls used to be such a pleasure to watch. Some would fly low to the shallow waters, and catch their feed, fly away, and give the rest of their flock a chance to do the same.
Then, there were those sampans. Men would take their sampans to the middle of the sea, and it was truly a sight to behold watching them sail past me so leisurely on those gentle waters, with only the waves crashing onto the beach, a distraction.
Well, I got to watch the sunrise and sunset last week, Friday. It is still fresh on my mind.
It is heavenly to take a break every now and then. It not only rejuvenates, but inspires too. Have a great weekend everyone – shobana
