Every morning when we have thrown back the curtains to look down over the Aldeburgh beach we have had our breath taken away with the glorious sunny start to another wonderful day. Each new dawn brings the most beautiful sunrise with an ever changing splash of colours.
Looking due east the sun seems to be waking and blinking right at us as if to remind us that another beautiful day is ahead. We have had the odd cloudy morning during our last two weeks housesitting here but even then the greys and blues have a character of their own and a beauty that tempts you out from under the duvet.
The sound of birds and the sea softly breaking on the stony beach adds to the dawn awakening and we have found that we just had to rise from our bed and get out there to experience another unique day.
As we sit outside quietly sipping our wake-up coffee and soaking up the peaceful atmosphere I have found myself saying exactly the same thing every single morning. I just can’t help myself and the daily familiarity has now become a part of our morning ritual. It is as if the day needs it’s own announcement and we need a gentle reminder of how much we should appreciate our time.
‘This could be the Last Day of Summer’
Always bringing an ironic smile to Joanna’s lips, which in truth is one of my favourite reasons for saying it, it has never been the last day so far as we just go on and on with this glorious weather. But it will be true very soon, perhaps today?
