Like Diamonds on Water

2:15 PM

There are two views I have laid my eyes on in life that I literally wanted to look at forever. So beautiful they filled me with giddy joy. The first was the sunrise on the morning Stephen and I climbed four fourteeners (fourteen thousand foot mountains) in Colorado. We started hiking in pitch black, and the sun rose about halfway up the first mountain. The colors and the fog in between mountain peaks were incredible. I wanted to sit and take it in for as long as possible. Perhaps because I knew of the hard hike ahead of me, but I don't think so. The second was when we passed through Angelfish Creek from Biscayne Bay to the Atlantic. Perhaps there are more beautiful colors of blue in the Bahamas or Caribbean, but this surely is hard to beat. One of the amazing aspects is that the ocean water was completely flat, calm, not a wave or a roller to be seen. The water glistened in the sunlight and it was a view I could have looked at forever. Lucky for me we sailed in it all day, and then of course the dolphins added that extra touch! The next day's sail was certainly beautiful, but was not perfectly smooth, so lacked that extra something special. Unfortunately the pictures don't do it justice, but I won't forget it!
