I came across this rather enchanting scene, this morning, as I was walking around Sliema, Malta – the only way, for me personally, to get a real feel for a place. It’s one of the first things I love to do, when I travel to a new place… take some time, stroll around, and get my bearings (no GPS or maps involved!).
I sat on a rock, nearby, trying not to feel like an intruder, and marveled at this sight, and the tranquility it invoked. It looked as if this was a regular occurrence, as the horse was obviously very used to standing there in the water, taking in the early morning rays, as his master stood quietly by. The man looked over at me, and smiled, ‘good morning’, he said, before turning his attention back to gazing intently at his horse; as I quietly slipped away.
