Today was a beach day.
I forgot what it felt like to to do NOTHING. To have no agenda in going somewhere. But today, I re-discovered that bliss. And oh does it feel amazing!! As I pulled into my parking spot I just smiled. BIG. Not because I just saw someone, not because of any reason but I was at the beach.
I parked. and just sat there in my car and stared out. I was in heaven. Now granted this is the pnw and my heaven was really less than 50 degrees, but there is water, and some sand. So im good:)
The thing I like about the beach is how it is such an invitation to just BE. Unless your a crabber or a fisher you don’t go with a job to do.
You go to relax, to laugh, to join around a campfire, lay in the sun…I like it. I took my time. Watched as old men dug for crabs, little kids flew kites, tour buses drove by…I just peacefully walked along the beach and snapped pictures just because I could. I would stop at random shells
and wonder who made it…Apparently this is what I do when I do ‘nothing’. It was wonderful! I highly suggest it. If beaches are your thing. The City use to be my thing, don’t get me wrong. I LOVE sky scrapers, downtown, lights, the busyness. But I LOVE the beach. Sand, Sun, Water. Im there.
This was my beach day. Today was more than I could have asked for. Oh and before all this I took pictures of a friends beautiful new baby girl and her daughter who I use to nanny. Here are a couple pictures from that:
