"When I admire the wonder of a sunset or the beauty of the moon, my soul expands in worship of the Creator." ~ Mahatma Gandhi
Here the Atlantic Ocean spreads east to touch the shores of Africa, England and Europe; the sun and moon rise over the water with fire and ice beauty. I didn't think the sunsets could be as spectacular here with no ball of fire dropping into the ocean water; but I was wrong. It was a cloudless sky and the colors developed one after another in deepening shades, as if a video of the sunrise was played in reverse; the reds and golds fading into purple and deep blue fading to black. And the ever present seagulls walked the sands and soared in the sky as night fell; then disappeared somewhere beyond the sunset, to where? Where do the seagulls go when the day is spent? I wonder.
