After 3 weeks of courtship, the pier and I start to know each other.
I watched the sunset lighting the sea while sitting under it. I know how confident the birds are, perching on the pier benches, watching me as I watch them.
I start understanding the relationship between the waves and the pillars. Trying to look at them from a small bird's point of view.
Really looked at the pillars, saw the inclination angle carefully calculated to bear the weight of the structure. From certain angles, the columns looked like a multi-legged elephant walking into the sea.
I saw the reflections in the wet sand and sparkling water.
I'm yet to feel the fishermen's joy when catching a fish. Understand their patience while waiting.
To see the pier really early in the morning, on a foggy and rainy day.
I need to take a closer look at the sea shell colonies on the foot of each pillar.
The best is yet to come.
