Young Love And The Stormy Sea

There's a side of me that would have loved non-stop sunshine during my short stay on the seaside at Playa del Carmen, but it's not reality. The reality is that we all face the calms seas and the rough seas. And beyond that, heck, those stormy skies over a tropic sea are just pretty striking!
So, dark skies are not just reality but they are dramatic in the right circumstance!
This stolen moment was in a brief lull in the storm. I had wandered down to the beach not knowing if anyone else would be out at all. There weren't many, but there was something about this young couple against the dark skies that reminded me you bring the weather with you. They weren't holed up in their room watching TV, they were out living life, enjoying it on its own terms. At least, in part, the romantic side of me thinks, it was because they had one another.
Every time I look at this picture of them standing next to the stormy sea, I'll think of how glad I am that I didn't sit down in front of the TV myself that day and instead went down to the beach to see what there was to see. The world is full of beauty if you just look for it, eh?
