I can’t remember the last time we went an entire summer without going to the beach.
The combination of COVID-19 and a revised teaching schedule made it a bit more challenging to plan a visit, but we were finally able to make it down the shore today, even though we missed summer by about five days.
The beach is one of my favorite places to go to, and I am quite content just sitting there reading and watching life go by.
I also made sure I took a quick dip despite the cool water and air temperatures, so at least that streak is still alive. After that, it was time to sit by the edge of the water with my toes in the sand and just watch the waves.
Hopefully, we will get the chance to spend part of next summer down the shore.
It’s one of my happy places…
