It’s ok to spontaneously embark on a fishing trip in the middle of the night or early in the morning:
In the middle of the night, I am chatting and having a few drinks with a couple of buddies at home and out of the blue someone raises the idea of going on a night fishing expedition, so the guys hastily pack up the tableful of snacks and draft beer, and head for the docks. It’s the height of summer and experienced anglers advise us that 03:00 is the perfect time for fishing as it is the time when the fish come out to forage.
Tonight, the moon is bright and the stars are sparkling, I and other fishing enthusiasts are expecting a rewarding fishing trip.
When others are fighting for a spot to view the fireworks show, you are sitting in your own alfresco VIP seat:
Sitting on your own yacht while sipping a glass of fine wine and keeping your decade-long lover company. Both of you remain silent, appreciating the resplendent sky with a smile; as the massive crowd ebbs and flows on the shore, she gazed at you gratefully, reminiscing about your promise to pamper her like a princess a decade ago.
Sunrise, sunset, cetacean watching – The ability to appreciate natural beauty anytime, anywhere:
During the long weekend, you and a few girlfriends have planned an exclusive small journey. Since time is rather short, you are reluctant to waste even one second of it, therefore you and your friends wake up on time in the early morning to watch sunrise. In the morning, everyone is busy looking for signs of cetaceans in the ocean and in the afternoon, you and your girlfriends spend time preparing for tea in the galley, secretly competing to see who makes the best desserts. After that, it is time for tea, sightseeing and chatting about the yesteryears and the future. At last, the golden halo of the sun submerges into the ocean at dusk and everyone starts to prepare the night’s feast in a leisurely, laidback fashion.
