I know, I know. I’ve been absent around these parts for a while. Work has a way of crowding out free time every once in a while. Well my friends, after a long week of being away, I can finally breathe out a sigh of relief; my workweek is done. I went to dinner earlier, and afterward decided to spend some time along the waterfront with a few friends to decompress and relax a while before preparing to return home tomorrow.
The day had been mostly cloudy and a bit chilly where I have been, but it felt good to be outdoors breathing in the sea air. By the time we got to the waterfront it was already dark. The cloud cover was breaking up however, and there was a nearly full moon peeking through the clouds and reflecting eerily on the water. A fog was beginning to form at the waterline. We sat on a park bench overlooking the moored ships and smaller boats. The fog kept building up along the water, enveloping most of the ships that were fading out of sight. Meanwhile, the moon above was shining through the cloud cover with increasing brightness casting a glow on the fog and the outlines of the ships. The effect was rather haunting; the ships took on a ghost-like appearance as the mist swirled around them. Eerie and supernatural.
I’m not in much of a writing mood tonight nor do I have the time. I need to get ready to return home tomorrow. I’ll leave you with some mood music that captures what it felt like at the waterfront harbor this evening.
Enjoy. I hope to visit your blogs when I return tomorrow.
