Gentle and Wild

Ocean so blue and calm. Gentle and still for recreation and fun. Rock you in the rolling waves. Invites to sit and listen to the sound of silence. Only broken by a screaming seagull. A boat passing by. Fishermen out to harvest the rich gifts of the giant blue. Smell the salty breeze, filling your lungs. Fill you with life itself.

There it stands, proud in on a tiny rock. The Väcker lighthouse. Tall to be seen and give ample warning. Lights the way in the night. Green and red. Be sure to choose wisely. Proud to show its rusty scars. Scars from salt splashing winds.

Roaring and wild. Incited by the wind. The howling strong wind. Bashing the waves against everything in its way. Try to stand, and wind will push you down. Splash saltwater in your face. Winds howling, drowns the seagulls screams. Pray that all has found a safe harbor. Give and take. Be sure to show respect.

Just a few days between the pictures. Ha de Gött!
