This article belongs to Sweet Grace column.

This rendezvous is meant for men and women of all age groups. Possibly the shore is more appealing to the younger generation than the older ones. Thousands of young lovers would be seen here daily comfortably seated on the sand nudging each other. You could stand at a distance or go even closer and see them or listen to their sweet-nothings. They wouldn't mind it at all. In fact, they would be totally oblivious to your eavesdropping.
When you see even older couples, walking hand in hand and talking away to glory or gazing at the blue waters, your own spirit will soar up, not only because of the touch of the southern breeze but also by the grand spectacle of the jubilant faces. The evening would be thick with the fragrance of affections and love songs . The delightful partners, both old and young, would transmit some kind of love-waves and music at different wavelengths on the bystanders.

I missed your sweet voice for so many hours…?" The tight control you may have been keeping over yourself would suddenly evaporate and all barriers between you and your wife would crumble to pieces. Then you would go back to your own love-nest a reformed husband with no remembrance of the past few hours and make immediate peace with your lady-love.
Such is the magical effect of the sea-side scenery. Wouldn't you like to get a first hand experience of this magic? Come on then, what are you waiting for? The crimson western sky is beckoning you and the Sun is just about ready to dive into the waters and disappear. Hurry!
