As seconds ticked by, the warm sun gradually revealed it self. The rays greeted me with a friendly hello. The rays reached towards me and shined a hint of light as if the rays wanted to lend me a hand. The gleam of light penetrated through my frigid skin and gave me sudden boost of warmth and excitement. The sun worked it’s way up to the atmosphere, radiating its power to everything at it sees. Birds were singing into my ear with high spirits, hovering around the sky trying to claim it for itself. The sky changed its color from dark misty teal to a flashy blue sky. Fluffy sets of clouds that were hiding the bright sky slowly faded away into thin air and the crystal clear waves sparkled like crystals and the cold aqua waters began to heat up. I walked up to the edge of the beach again and dunked my feet into the water. It felt as if my numbed and cold feet from before melted into a puddle and mixed with the warm ocean. I could hear the creatures in the ocean fiddle around for attention; at the same time I could sense their doubt toward the sea gulls that were hungry looking for any fish in the waters for a tasty meal.
People began to come out of their homes and enjoy the remarkable gift Mother Nature has created for us. Eventually, the beach became a space filled with voices. Children are scooping up the silk like sand and molding them into magnificent piece of art of their ever-lasting imagination. I stretch my limbs and leaned down on comfy beach chair; with an ice cream in one hand melting its way to my skin, I observed closely at everyone on the beach. A group of teenage boys are playing tag with the girls as if they were kids again; the beach really did bring everyone closer to each other and bring back memories of their curious childhood. Everything was possible to do at the beach. From the way people dress to the things they do, it characterizes them and their own unique personality. Sports and beach balls were thrown around in the air as people played volleyball, football, rugby and all sorts of different ball games. Sweats dripped down everyone’s faces after playing hard out in the sun; some raced to reapply sunscreen on their dehydrated red skin whilst the others took a dive into the ocean to cool off. Water was splashed everywhere from the people swimming as well as fooling around and the reflection of their faces showing a huge smile are drawn on the waves. The waves show a smile in return and create a huge wave that carries everyone safely back onto the shore. Out onto the far ocean, I can see glimpse of people riding jet-skis and speed boats racing as fast as a bullet toward the never ending horizon and up above; a humongous shade of red, blue and green colors fade onto the waters upfront as the parasails hover back to the beach for landing. The sun is getting tired and is slowly reduce its heat; towels were handed to the visitors and the shops alongside the waterfront were one by one packing up, getting ready to close down. I could imagine the smiles on the shopkeepers face and the success they have earned today and their high hopes for tomorrow’s work awaits them.
The dark was closing in, and gradually one by one, people are leaving the seashore after an exciting but very tiresome day at the beach; however the sight of their lively hearts smiling at me were so vivid I could almost see it. Some stayed around to see the spectacular view of when the sun sets and to make a wish upon the glowing stars far above the ozone. Eventually, the sunsets, the orange was mingling with the blue color of the sky and it mad a vast contrast of many different vibrant colors. The glamorous crimson color diving into the blue sea as the sun radiates its last rays of the day is a sight of stressful memories marching away. The pleasant breeze, the salty smell of salty water mixed with the silk like sand and the sound of waves rushing against each other completed the image of a perfect beach. The scene was truly beautiful. As I left the shore, the reflections of the waves saluted me as if I was part of the beach.
