There is a certain kind of summer evening in Old Perlican, when the world feels magnificent. The world is a magical gold. Every sunset is different – with very different colours and different patterns, lighting and structures - depending on the exact evening. The best sunsets come after not so perfect days. There must be significant clouds through the day. After an overcast, very cloudy or rainy day, Old Perlican is rewarded with the sun peaking brilliantly beneath the cloud to give the day a glorious ending. On special evenings, it turns the harbour to metallic gold.
