Sunsets and Sea- Couple time.
We’re back and nearly caught back up with ourselves.
Our first 2 week holiday since our honeymoon.
We needed some couple time after all the strain for the last few years.
So we explored together,
visited an old winery,
changed my whole concept of “forest” into that of a fairy tale land, with twisting trails that may never lead anywhere.
Then there were the skies and sunsets
Even the sun wore shades! lol
And that relaxing sound of the sea and the way the light played on its surface.
We needed this couple time to explore who we were and see if we still got on as individuals rather than Mum and Dad figures.
Slowly we unwound like springs which were too tightly coiled for too long.
We started to talk like a couple rather than a family.
We read books and took photographs.
We slowed down.
The sunsets from our balcony overlooking the sea fed pool were beautiful.
Colours and textures.
The stars seemed closer so I zoomed into Venus. We fell asleep to the sound of the waves.
We woke to the sound of waves.
We felt closer to the landscape and what is real about life.
There was time for history and archaeology. (I will share later).
But most of all there was time for us as individuals,
And as a couple.
We are close again and can see where we are going.
We picked up a little passenger for our journey Tia Maria, arriving in July. There were 5 others I wished I had space for.
So now we are more relaxed and more focussed.
Prepared for the next stage of our lives together.
The only way is up!
