Maybe the best view from my balcony is at night. After dark the ugliness of the nearby golf resort is hidden, and appears only as hundreds of twinkling lights. The moon maybe laying its silver pathway over the ocean. Stars? Well, hard to make out, what with the light pollution from “next door” and from the harbour lights and street lights of this village. Strung out across the ocean you may see lights from the local fishing boats, bright, scary lights if they are mackeral fishing, and the dark sky is often pierced by the blazing lights of incoming planes.
