My book beginnings is taken from BRIDGE ACROSS THE OCEAN by Susan Meissner:

 
"The afternoon sun lies low and sweet among the clouds that bug the harbor, bathing the promenade deck in shimmering half-light.  On the pier a brass head plays a happy tune as good-byes are said at the far end of the gangway."
