It was shortly after six o'clock in the evening when I went for a walk by
the seashore in Penang. The tide was just coming in and waves were beating
strongly against the rocks. Seagulls were flying over the sea, looking for
fish and swooping down onto the water
every now and then.
The scene was truly a beautiful one to behold. The sun was sinking
beneath the horizon and the sky was painted with beautiful
tints of pink, gold, orange and yellow. Its
reflection on the sea held me spellbound.
There was a magical touch about it and it was created by the dancing waves
that shimmered in the twilight.
I saw fishermen returning wearily after a day of
toil out at sea in their boats which were
probably loaded with fish. There were many people strolling along the beach,
enjoying the cool sea breeze. Children were the happiest as they ran and
dipped their little feet in the cool sea water, letting out
squeals of delight as the waves teased
I felt at peace, surrounded by the beauty of Mother Nature and
tranquility as I welcomed the close of the day by the seashore that evening.
