On the Adriatic Sea

The Adriatic Sea

The wind brings clouds that brush their muted grey across the sky and choppy caps of white in the reflecting sea. An Island of green lush trees bridges the gap between horizons, vivid in the haze.

Our apartment is far enough away from civilization to deem going anywhere unnecessary, so we read and write and watch the changing light play across the expanse outside our window. A shallow blue cargo ship rises and falls with the tide, moored stationery since morning.

Branches dance in the breeze outside our door, movement tempered by distance, perception. The boat is barely moving. On the island all is still. And beyond, only birds can break the spell.

The Marina Bay Sands Resort in Singapore, or that building with the ship on top of it. Singapore had some pretty impressive architecture, but it was just too expensive for the likes of us.

 

 

Borocay. Our first taste of the glory that are Asian Beaches. This Filipino beach was a haven for cheap food and massages, and had a wonderful boardwalk perfect for lounging among the palms listening to live music while sipping on a Red Horse.

Boat's loaded with fresh seafood would pull up to the docks and seawall in Hong Kong, selling tourists and locals whatever they pointed at by extending them the net, first the cash, then the catch.
