Contentment in the french countryside

The most perfect spot. The beauty of this is that I would probably never be able to find it again. I could drive along the same route along the french countryside but not be able to locate this exact lookout . It took my breath away. You'd think it's such a cliche, sunlight sparkling on the surface of the water and the deep blue ocean melding fluidly with the soft pale blue of the sky in the distance. I remember absorbing the incredible, scenic landscape and thinking, "How lucky I am". "How lucky to have this day, to have the opportunity to travel to this place, how lucky to be alive, to breathe in the crisp, fresh air and to admire this magnificent view". It generated immediate feelings of gratefulness and soul deep contentment. It allowed me to shed all burdens. And that truly was the magic of that perfect spot.
