After it rained and rained and rained this weekend, the rivers from the mountain flooded downhill into the city and beyond to the sea.

Sometimes it is important to go back over old work and look at it with fresh eyes. In this case, what caught my attention was the simple wooden structure against the early evening sky.

I like the effect. It feels like a light beacon / a pink symbol of safe harbour against the darkness threatening overhead.
It was really blowing! The wind howled, the gusts were enough to blow you over, deck chairs went flying down the street…and at sea, the white caps stretching as far out to the horizon as one could see. The spindrift…. airborne white spray fans creating spectacular wind patterns across the waves. Windy, wild weather at sea.
The sea and sky merge in this image, one is barely able to see the difference, apart from some small islands in the distance. Apart from that, it is a cliff of green, and then endless pale blue sky and sea…magic! The two barrels a not so subtle hint of the area I am in…But, what is not to love – vineyards, grass, cliff top views, big sky and sea…a dramatic, romantic place.
Is love and the beach! And today, I am inclined to agree, the sea in the distance is blue, the sky also clear and blue. Love and the beach, a perfect combination!
