What is a view? Definition: a view is a sight or prospect, typically of attractive natural scenery.
A view is truly a many splendoured thing, it can capture your heart, seize your soul and make it sing, it can amaze, astound and astonish, it can release you from a reverie and send you into one all at the same time. But - it's all very subjective, isn't it? So, what is your view of a view?
Would your vision of beauty be a fairy-tale castle standing majestic in a shimmering, sparkling blue sea which softly caresses the sun-kissed, sandy beach? Or a light autumnal mist gently dispersing in the early morning sunshine over a wild, windswept, mysterious moor? Or maybe it's spring lambs gambolling in a meadow filled with wildflowers?
Whilst I'm definitely a 'walking on sunshine' kind of girl rather than an 'ain’t no sunshine' one, I can, and do, ooh and ahh at the beauty of dark, leaden skies rolling over the ocean on a wild and windy day or the desolate and yet magical moorlands in the grip of a hard frost. There’s no doubt about it, a view can be exhilarating-ly spectacular whatever the weather. Personally, I love to gaze at the sea; a beautiful, sun-streaked mackerel sky over an ever-changing seascape is a mesmerising sight to behold. I’m reliably informed by my children that one day I shall have my own sea view - it seems they’ve earmarked a room for me at a nearby residential care home that stands high and proud on the clifftop. You see, there’s always something to look forward to!
Just like Basil, we can't promise you a sunrise over the Sydney Opera House or a panorama of a herd of wildebeest sweeping majestically across the open fields but a stay at one of our ‘location, location, location’ rooms with a view may just be the sight needed for your sore eyes - who says you can’t have it all?
A view to make you go ‘wow’! Breathtaking views of the ocean - start the day off there and you may well still be there at the end of the day. Take a tour around Rock.
