23. It Floats


Happy New Year! And what a lovely sight it was to see dozens of lit paper lanterns set aloft on the beach on New Year’s Eve. The sea breeze lifted them up into the darkness and gently carried them over the sea, their flames flickering until they were tiny glimmers in the vast black sky. Then they were gone. For a brief time we delighted in their ascent and, along with the children, watched with eyes aglow. It was a perfectly pretty and magical treat before the boom-boom-boom of midnight fireworks.

  1. That would be very cool to see! Happy New Year!


  2. Aren’t they beautiful? Our friends daughter got married on the beach and they all got to light one of these and set them afloat. Magical is the right word.
