Last week I took a day trip to the Texas coast. I’ve been wanting to go forever and this was the time. As it turned out it was the perfect time as the temperature was moderate, wind was gentle, the water was very warm and crystal clear. It’s been over 30 years since I’ve seen the coast like this. I wished that I had packed food in the cooler with the drinks and spent the day on the beach – under the umbrella. Mild disappointment that the restaurant I wanted to eat at was closed for several days, but the beach made up for that very quickly.
What is it about the beach that is so soothing? And, why does the ocean fascinate me? I’m not an in-the-water person. Maybe it’s because the ocean reminds me of eternity with the way it appears to stretch forever. I don’t know and I won’t question it! It is the way it is.
