Hello. 1a. I watched the beautiful stretch of the shoreline as it floated into view. (Korea university entrance exam) I can't completely undertand the meaning of 'it floated into view'. I think that 'it' indicates 'the beautiful stretch of the shoreline'. Then maybe this situation is the time when the Sun comes out through the dawn. And he or she can see the scene. Am I right? and does 'view' indicate the eyes of him or her? Thank you always~.
