“The lights of the city are the stars on the ground” – lyrics from Lisa Loeb that always struck me as a beautiful thought. Indeed, there is some magic about being out for a night on the town. And particularly in the early evening. Sea breeze puts a bit of a chill in the air (we like that, 1) you get to dress up and 2) its an excuse to snuggle and hug). Rather than high energy party vibes, the mood becomes jazzy and stately – a great deal better than hyper. And the city struts its lights like a flirting peacock. Of course, here, the magic also glides on the surface of the sea. And given that you give your life and your work 110% – you deserve the evening out. A nice meal, some casual vibes, perhaps some wine or even a cocktail. And stars everywhere you look.
