Through fuzzy vision you spot little white flowers entangled in long golden tresses. You inhale scents of sandstone, lemon spritz and seafoam - slowly coming to your senses. The sound of the dry coastal grasses bending in the autumn breeze makes you lift your head and look around. Seasonal aromas of green apple and nutmeg permeate the air. Propping yourself up further as you realize there had been someone there with you on the rocky ledge, but... A small splash in the sea grabs your attention and you glimpse golden strands just before they dip below the surface.
