ON THE BEACH AT THE RITZ

The solar disc was no longer a well-defined sphere, but a wide expanding ellipse that fanned out across the eastern horizon like a colossal fire-ball, its reflection turning the dead surface of the lagoon into a brilliant copper shield. By noon , less than four hours away, the water would seem to burn.
