I’d be lying if I told you that the sound of the ocean woke me up. I woke up because I don’t sleep comfortably if not in my own bed and because I am a morning person. My body clock rings when the real world clock hits 5am.
The sound of the ocean was a welcome change at 5:30am as opposed to the quiet sound of our house at the same time, you know, the silence of the sleeping city. I gathered my senses and walked out of our musty room.
Cold weather and breathtaking view — I should be holding a cup of my favorite coffee.
I looked around and tried to search for a store, a restaurant –somewhere to buy even that 3in1 type of coffee. Closed. All the establishments are still closed at this hour. I must be the only one awake.
I took out the laptop and searched for a picture of a mug of coffee and stared in envy… waited for the sun to wave hello and for the kind restaurant staff to offer me coffee.
They said that our reservation includes a complimentary Continental Breakfast.
It is simply instant coffee, toast, butter and jam…
But there’s something about those toast and butter and jam when eaten lazily while admiring the view and taking in some salty, morning air.
And there’s nothing like coffee, even if it’s just instant coffee, when it hits your throat upon first sip.
Breakfast was simple. The food wasn’t special. It was nothing to rave about.
But I appreciated that moment…that serene morning… that view.. and the friendly people that makes up that resort.
It’s one of my best mornings.
