Basking Beauties

Near Cape Town
Seen on holiday



Theirs' for the asking;
A life full of basking,
Of rolling and twisting and diving.
The African coast
Is the place they like most.
And just look for yourself! They are thriving.
The water is clear
And they swim without fear;
Bobbing up to see who is arriving.
I suddenly feel
I could live like a seal!
Why on earth do we waste our lives striving?

A moving story about South Africa here:

They sure look like they were having fun! If only it were warm enough for me to go swimming!
