Then I noticed that a definite orange glow was starting to creep over everything and the sun suddenly burst forth from behind the cloud cover.
The swell had strengthened and now waves were crashing into the rocks in front of the house.
The light changed from orange to pink gold as the sun dropped into the sea, staining the waves with brilliant colour.
Lower and lower it it went ...
Lighting up a fountain of waves ...
Until all that was left was a faint apricot brushstroke of colour.
Welcome 2010, a new chance to start afresh, do better and be kinder to all we meet.
