We all wait for the summer to arrive. We all look forward to bask in the warm sun, to feel the warm wind, to travel and to enjoy whatever destination we choose for our holidays. In truth, summer is when we feel more alive, I guess. We cherish the early sun dawns, late sunsets, and all the fun in between. And why not, wearing skimpy clothing which is liberating, as opposed to winter when we dress in several layers, taking ages to do so.
But the summer ends, as it happens with all the good things in life. End of a summer, which is part of the rotation our life goes through, right? People come, they have fun, people leave for home, the hoteliers close down, and what was once a booming resort returns to the autumn stillness. The beach once roamed by thousands is now deserted, the parks and beach bars (once the place for good times) are now empty, and the sea is troubled somehow because it has remained alone, again.
But the people will come back next year, the beach will be full, and the sea happy again. See you next year, Black Sea resort, and thank you for your company during the days of my holiday!
