Seriously, last Friday was a blue moon and I went to the beach. For the first time in eleven years… and it was wonderfully relaxing. So much so that I feel asleep in the sun more than once, which I’m certain contributed to my sunburn, which prompted a concerned “What’s wrong with your face?” from one of my first-graders when I returned to school. It was worth it.
“I have always loved the beach. The smell of the salty water, the wind in my face, the gentle roar of the waves all combine to create a sense of peace and calm.”
