"Anticipation" - Seaphotography Contest Week 143

Anticipation, anticipation

Is makin' me late
Is keepin' me waitin'

There is nothing quite like the adrenaline rush of excitement as you finally see the view of your vacation destination from the window of the airplane!

It hits me

Every. Single. Time.

On this particular trip we were headed to Sint Maarten /Saint Martin back in 2019. Nostalgically, also the last international vacation I took since the pandemic.

The views you see are of Simpson Bay, Sint Maarten.

Lyrics

We can never know about the days to come
But we think about them anyway
And I wonder if I'm really with you now
Or just chasin' after some finer day

Anticipation, anticipation
Is makin' me late
Is keepin' me waitin'

And I tell you how easy it feels to be with you
And how right your arms feel around me
But I, I rehearsed those words just late last night
When I was thinkin' about how right tonight might be

Anticipation, anticipation
Is makin' me late
Is keepin' me waitin'

And tomorrow we might not be together
I'm no prophet and I don't know nature's ways
So I'll try and see into your eyes right now
And stay right here 'cause these are the good old days

And stay right here 'cause these are the good old days
(These are the good old days)
(These are the good old days)
(These are the good old days)
(These are the good old days)

Heard good things about that area from a few folks. I'm guessing you liked it as well. Anything stand out, or just the beach time?

I'm pretty covered, right. My back piece took about 20 hours. It's a tribute to the only parent I knew. She left when I was 37. At the very top, just under my neck line is a mailbox with her last known address.

You have NO CLUE how difficult it was to hold the phone behind my head and not only know where the :click: button is but to actually get my neck line was the challenge of the week.

This is so true for me also:

There is nothing quite like the adrenaline rush of excitement as you finally see the view of your vacation destination from the window of the airplane!

Great view of Sint Maarten and totally fitting song, although I'm a little biased towards Carly.

Oh yeah I could feel the anticipation build waiting to enjoy the sun and fun there!! yes please indeed!

There is a well known backstory to the song as Carly wrote it about waiting for Cat Stevens to pick her up for a date. I could see feeling anticipation for a date with her as she was a cutie :)
