The Prompt : Moment.
Pick one moment during which you felt most alive this year. Describe it in vivid detail (texture, smells, voices, noises, colors).
This was at a lonely beach on the Andhrapradesh coast. We were on a vacation and had a day to ourselves. Our rickshaw driver suggested a beach which was a bit off the tourist trail. We were more than happy to go such a beach. The road was non existant , but the bumpy ride through the hill side , in the drizzle of the rain with panoramic ocean views playing peek a boo was just wonderful. When we did reach the beach , the only people on the beach was a watchman, preventing people from swimming in the rough sea and the local fishermen.
The beach was hardly 40 feet wide. The sand just dropped and then there was a sliver of a beach on which the waves thrashed down. The views were wonderful. We spotted almost 30 ships docked in the far distance waiting for their turn to enter the nearby port. The salty sea breeze suddenly gained speed, The horizon clouded up and we could not see any thing. It was About to rain. With no where to run or hide , we sat down on the beach and huddled under a single solitary umbrella, protecting our gear more than ourselves. The Beauty , magnificence and the Elegance of the sea is most evident in a rainstorm. She breaks her bounds of modesty and propriety and truly expresses hers self. She was Breathtaking.
