Sometimes it's easy to forget the beauty which surrounds us, to be too busy to take time to stop and look.
It's been particularly difficult to savour it this summer when we will remember the monsoon like rain and days without sunshine.

While her Dad kept a careful watch, I drank in the peace and beauty of a perfect end to the day.
