By the sea… an evening at Coogee
I GUESS there’s something about the sea that draws us, something primordial, something alluring. Even those distant from the sea, like those of us fortunate enough to live within walking distance of it, are drawn to its undulations and ceaseless movement.
That’s why, in late autumn, we were drawn to Coogee Beach to stand silently and watch as the ocean’s surge built into cascading waves, and as the light started to drain from the sky like the white water withdrawing from the beach.
Come evening, people cease from toil. It is time to unwind, to wander, to slow down. There is no better place to do that than on some high point overlooking the sea. It is here, where the tamed nature of the city meets the untamed nature of the sea, that we find peace as day fades to evening.
