She sat down on a stone wall and took a sip of water. All this beauty around her made her notice the small things.
A smiling scarecrow. The glimmer of sunlight on the waves, all the way to the horizon.
The cacti framing the sea view. The slight tan line appearing by her toes, where her shoes ended.
A brief breeze brought relief into the sticky hotness of the day, but she loved the heat.
Absorbed it down to her very core to carry along with her when she went home.
