(Day 35) At last ...

It was a fitting end to a most glorious day - the sun setting into a bank of clouds on the Gulf. People sat or stood silently and watched the spectacle unfolding, or perhaps, folding. All was momentarily quiet. Mere humans could not have created such a scene. The beauty of photography is that it allows us to capture moments like this to savour again, and to transport us to the scene from another time and place. And at last we enjoyed a day that fully met the expectations we had had before our trip began, although we did partake too much of the sun, just in case the opportunity wouldn't present itself again. We agreed that we would pay the price without grumbling.
