With work and busy schedules, it’s often tricky for Chad and I to find time to do anything together besides passing out on the couch or sleeping. With a job that doesn’t pay as much as you would hope and bills to pay, going out isn’t really on our list of things to do either.
One Tuesday evening, however, we found ourselves free. I had been longing to be out in the sun all day, but had grumpily accepted that today may not be one of those days. It was then I had a text from Chad asking if we wanted to go to a seaside cafe called ripple. I had gone once last year after an event at a different high school and had been longing to take back.
Chasing the daylight we drove down the coastline of southern Nagasaki, and I was reminded once again just how beautiful the place I live is, and just how lucky I am to be able to see it anytime I want. It’s so easy to take beautiful scenery and calming waves for granted when you see it everyday.
Making it just before sunset we were sure to be in time! Unfortunately the cafe had closed thirty minutes before, but I didn’t care.
Never had I heard such loud waves. Never had I felt the sound roll through me like the crescendo of a drum, the final beat striking me in the heart. We stood, content for a while just watching the glistening ripples come ashore, dancing along the sand before fizzling out and returning to the sea.
Thank you for such an amazing evening Chad, it was perfect.
