Think of beach time at the edge of an ocean and the words sand, sun and salt water come to mind. Add the idea of relaxation and beauty to these key elements, and you will have the recipe for what I enjoy most about the view of the sea. The best beach moments for me are watching the sunsets, no matter from what beach you view the ocean. On a trip to Mauritius, my family and I viewed a number of beach sunsets.
The first sunset I have shown you was taken while watching the sun set on a rocky beach. We had not spent time in the water, but the peace and tranquillity of the moment was a balm to my soul.
The second sunset we watched was at Grand Baie. While my husband and I watched the setting sun, our children played on the beach sand. What a joy it was to see them enjoying themselves.
On another evening we watched the sun set after a few hours of beach time. Even though the sun was going down, people continued to enjoy the salty water.
For many, though, it was time to pack up and go home. The next day was Monday: a day of work and the weekly routine.
Another beach sunset I watched was from the chaise-lounge at the Intercontinental Hotel. I lay back in the chair and relaxed as I absorbed Mother Nature’s beauty.
At times the brilliance of the orange sun was astounding.
I noticed a beauty too in the lengthening shadows and the silhouettes that showed themselves to all those who wished to see.
I enjoy many moments at the edge of the sea. The ones I enjoy most, however, are the ones I spend there at the end of the day. I enjoy the colours, the silhouettes, the sound of the waves meeting the shore, and the sense of peace that fills me.
What do you enjoy most about the sea?
