There is something about sunsets and beaches that make me feel close to nature. It is as if you get a glimpse of the magnificence of nature through a sunset over the ocean.

 Walking along at the stretch of beach at the harbour in Richards Bay on a lovely summer evening in December. Sitting down watching the sunset across the harbour and lost in thought.

We don’t stop and just watch the sunset often enough in our busy lives. We should all watch a sunset at least once a week as it only takes a couple of minutes and it really has a calming effect!

As the last rays fade we say goodbye to a lovely day

 I really think that South Africa still has some very beautiful beaches and that the sunsets are spectacular!!
