I was on a small yacht-like boat alone near land taking in the beauty of the scenery. The water was crystal clear, with ability to see the bottom of the ocean, exposing the coral and its colonies of fish to its observers above. There was no cloud in the sky with the sun directly above. The air was fresh, as it often is on the ocean, and cool. Nearby are small islands overrun with vegetation that meet the ocean with silver-brown clay cliffs, which reach heights of perhaps 50 feet. The cliffs looked rugged, but smooth and uniform in its own sense, giving it a calming and magnificent look. The mainland is nearby, but not in sight.
