An Absolutely Perfect Day

Waves lap gently at the shore 
washing footprints from the soft golden sand.
Children squeal with excitement.
Mum and Dad watch on.

A man on a jet ski.
Lads on paddle boards.
A lady sets off on swim across the bay,
dragging a pink float behind her,
her three dogs - all wearing life jackets,
follow her. 
...looks like they do this every evening!

Setting sun starts to colour the cloudess sky.
Deep yellows turn to fiery oranges.
The sun,
now an orange disc,
quickly drops behind distant headland, leaving a quiet calm to the end of an absolutely perfect day.
