“The palm trees swaying in the wind look as if they are dancing in unison. From a distance it looks like the open sea welcomes you with its natural blue coolness. The sun feels friendly this afternoon letting the white clouds cover the heat. The clouds are so beautiful combined with the beautiful blue sky. The sound of laughter children playing can be heard shouting as a sign that today will be a cheerful day. Rocks and a small stretch of white sand also take part in the joy that has been formed and orchestrate the feeling of happiness in the heart.”
