Foros, Ukraine –  The sun sets on the Black Sea.  Tan bodies sprawled over beach towels quickly gather their things and trek back to their cars as the sea breeze pushes inland.  The sun moves further beyond the horizon and the night air cools off.  The beach is empty except for a few people combing the rocks for souvenirs. A pair of lovers walking hand in hand, telling secrets only meant for each other, walk past me, their whispers fading as the distance grows.  They make their way out on an old unfinished retaining wall.  An older couple sits under them, completely oblivious to the wonder and sentiments shared above them.
