B is for beach


While hubby is here trying to catch a shark 🙂 or whatever …







This is where I’ll be at the end of the month on my way to Florida.

I can’t wait. I’m not really a beach person, as in I wouldn’t want to spend weeks lounging around doing nothing, but there’s something about looking out over the vastness of the ocean and watching the waves break on the sand that is almost hypnotic to me. The squawk of the seagulls overhead, the powdery feel of the sand between my toes, and the warmth of the sun on my face = me all relaxed and happy. There’s no logic to it. It just is. And I don’t question it.

Right now, the temperature here is barely above the freezing point, the sky is grey and there are no flowers or trees to provide any colour at all. So I’m counting down the days … and with any luck, after my beach getaway and we head further south, I’ll be able to meet up with my good friend Amy Atwell for lunch and some writing talk. A perfect start to any vacation.

What about you? What’s your idea of a great vacation? Beach? Mountains?
