I have a bit of a problem doing the stretchy exercises here on the boat as I don’t have a flat wall, and with my arms above my head, well, the roof gets in the way.
However, I have been able to improvise in the ladies loo as there’s a nice bit of partitioning that is just the right height for me to stretch to and hold, then for the pushing elbows back I can stand with my back to said partition and push backwards to touch it.
So far, no-one has come in whilst I’m puffing my way up the wall sotospeak.
However, this post is not about exercise!
I didn’t have my camera when I went up to do my exercises and dispose of the rubbish this afternoon, but if I had, hopefully I would have been able to capture the pure beauty of an ice blue sky reflected on ice blue water on the river.
Skies and their various hues fascinate me.
Sunsets and Dawns inspire me to write and the clearness of the sky today was no exception.
This Getty Image is pretty close to the effect, but totally different to the landscape here.
A vision of blue,
Cool, distant, yet welcoming
As the day winds down
And the sky meets the water.
All is quiet and still, remembering
The light of dawn
Fading towards sunset.
No clouds to hinder
Or detract from this simple beauty,
Clear, crisp and clean
I feel no chill on the air.
No sun to be seen
Yet it’s light and no shadows
Mask the horizon or distort
Craft as they sway on the current.
Soon it will be gone,
This magical moment of bliss and solitude,
A once in a lifetime visual
That I was unable to capture and share.
