Today was hot and humid with a little rain and a single thunderclap. It wasn't a day for doing much, so we hung out by the pool and later took a drive up to Speightstown where we bought provisions in a rickety supermarket and drank a long rum punch at a little wooden bar.

Now it is evening, still warm, and I'm just watching the last minutes of the most spectacular sunset I have ever seen.

I'm sat on the veranda looking down the garden towards the sea, the plants and trees framing the last of the light. For a moment I convinced myself I was watching a film on a cinema screen. Somehow it just didn't seem real.

It was though and I was lucky enough to witness it.
