And so we sallied forth, up pebbled steps and through the green and brambles until we came to the watch tower.
We were just in time to stand for a few moments and watch the sun cast its final rays across the landscape, before slipping into slumber; admitting defeat to the moon and the cloak of darkness that sat waiting to smother all.
In silence and thought we stood, watching nature's greatest gift burst into flames, fill the landscape with a kaleidoscope of colours and finally, disappear. Drawing in a deep breath, we sighed.
"Goodbye sunshine" we said. "See you tomorrow."
