I was sitting on my deck last Sunday reading a book. I looked up and savoured the view - a 360 degree panorama of Port Elizabeth in Bequia.
One of the things that I like about my view is that the boat swings in the wind, so I can just look up and the landscape moves from side to side as the boat swings.
Anyway, I got to thinking... this is the first time in my life that I have had a real view and taken the time out to enjoy it! I grew up in cities with back gardens and walls. I've had some apartments with nice views out of windows, but I never really sat and looked out of the window. I've never had a balcony either. With a stern deck, a bridge deck and a deck across the bow I can't help but sit and look at the view these days - I like that :)
Totally unrelated, but I like this picture... I saw some fishermen preparing their nets the other day ...
