Connecting to the beach

Connecting to the beach…

We have to cross the boardwalk.

I want to walk barefoot, but usually have to wear sandals to protect the soles of my feet on the heated wood. Once we get to that beach, I kick them off and sink my toes into the sand. We trudge through the broken shells to the best spot for the next couple of hours, set up our chairs, and head into the water to cool off. Then I sit mindfully and listen to the sound of the waves as they come up on the shore.  After a while, we walk along the edge of the water and find unbroken shells for our ever-growing collection back home.

The beach is my favorite part of living in Florida.

    We went to the beach last weekend to kick off spring break. Our Gulf waters aren’t as pretty as Florida’s, but the day was great! No need for a pedicure when you can walk on the sand.

    I’m not in Florida, I’m in L.A. and you made me realize how long it’s been since I’ve been on the beach. I use to go every day. I know what I’ll be doing tomorrow morning. Thank you

    I must be the only person in North America who has never been to Florida. I love the photo, makes me want to run ahead to get my toes in the sand.

    I lived in Florida in my 20s and loved it! Things were so carefree then. Oh, how I miss those days. 🙂
