As the Curtain Falls
Last week, I was fortunate enough to finally take a little quick getaway. It wasn't something we'd planned perfectly. In fact, it was the first trip we had after a while. Having an uncomfortable 10 months old baby in the car for long hours was tough and my exhausted mind and body were not cooperating at all. I think this particular trip deserves to be bookmarked in my What to Do and What Not to Do Guide as a Mommy of Three. :))
However, by the time the ocean was in sight, everything seemed worthwhile. The baby whining, the children bickering, the headache, all just slowly melted away and disappeared. Everyone stared outside in silence as we drove across the beautiful coastline.
I myself, have always thought of the sea as bewitching, especially at sunset. Unlike most people who loves to visit the ocean when the sun is high up in the sky, I prefer to pay my respects when the day is at its end and the waves are serenading their farewell song. There's a kind of magic that seems to linger in the air. As if all creatures stand across the stage, bowing with the last applause. I'm just glad I got to watch the curtain falls this one time, especially with my loved ones by my side.
So how about you? Any quick getaways on the horizon? :)
PS: Thank you to my lovely husband for taking these breath taking pictures. OXOX
