It feels like Autumn already this year and that’s so unusual for here! Patrick and I have spent the last few days walking on our “private beach”. We marvel at the beauty and the spectacular sunsets where the light changes from moment to moment.
Where ducks and geese head south for the winter and make a bi-annual stop to rest and to eat. Where dolphins return home every evening in the Cove after spending a day feeding in the ocean.
We walk for miles and miles, and not a soul to be seen; just the two of us, one with nature feeling the warm wet sand between our toes as the waves weave in and out in a never-ending dance.
No matter what goes on in our lives, everything is forgotten on our beach as we become one with the sea and the sky, at one with the sun setting and the moon rising.
We retrace our ephemeral steps as we watch the first stars making their entrance in the evening sky. There’s so much beauty to behold and yet no one does. We’re alone. Alone, but one with nature as we breathe in deeply the salt air and we’re extremely grateful for this time in the “now”.
Maya Muses: The only ones on the beach with us are the seagulls, the palm trees, our family of dolphins, and an adorable crab who stood his ground and let us take a bunch of photos of him!
Patrick and the Crab in a Showdown!
The Crab wins!
Look! We’re all alone!
I don’t know why no one wants to come???
Well then get out of town!
Pink and Lavender Skies.
Evening has come.
Time to go home.
