October 2012 – Healing Island Spa

Wondrous winds and waves washing in,
Golden light with rainbow arching in on the emerald green land  around Inchydoney Island.
We (high) above sea and surf watching and listening to the water proceeding, receding the tides like the rhythm of nature’s beast.
Healing and cleaning the waterways of our mind, body and soul

Seaweed and seashells on the sand, fresh ocean air wafting up to us on balcony balustrade.  Watching couples walking entwined, laughter lifting, families and children frolicking and running on the sands.  Balls rolling in the wind, joys racing surfers on the crest of waves.

Immersed in the sea water pool, sea salt invigorating, spray splashing, bubbles blowing, waters caressing replenishing, where we have come.
Sunlight shining clean and cleanses  through mosaic blue.

Scent of incense, myrrh and frank.  Diamond exfoliating enveloped in Cleopatra’s milky bath.
Beautifully applied with care and passion.
Muscles relaxing, sinews renewing, life with Ulysses great bar.
What a way to rejuvenate in the energy oceans of the Island Spa

Island Oasis
Wind & Waves washing in golden light, be drizzled rainbow arching on an emerald green.
High above the sea and surf, watching and listening to water proceeding, receding the tides like clockwork, healing and cleansing the waterways of the mind.
Seashells and seaweed on the sand, fresh ocean air wafting up to us on the balconies, watching couples arms entwined, walking, running, laughter, children playing on the beach
Joys racing surfers cresting on the waves.
Scents of innocence and life remembered and reborn.
Diamond exfoliation, enveloped in Cleopatra’s Milky Bath, beautifully applied with passion  and care.
Muscles relaxing sinews renewing like Ulysses great bar.
What a way to enter a New Year.
