Thank you all so much for all your blog love and good wishes!!! You all really know how to make a person's day. Miss B is still home, hacking away, but the rest of us are up and out. I still get the achey thing in the afternoon, but that could just be my weird immune system.
Let's get back to the beach, shall we?
The promise of summer....
Warm sand on your toes,
beauty all around.
The healing power of the water,
life and balance.
I could spend hours looking at shells.
Well, I have, actually!
There is nothing quite like it. Walking in the sand with your head down, the sun warm on your back. Your eye catches something and bending down, you catch the shell in your hand before the water takes it back. Covered in sand, you wait for the water to return and wash it off, letting the water go through your hands and the beauty of the shell shines back at you.
Sometimes you gently put it back, to let it go back into it's purpose of becoming a home or a part of the huge eco system to which it belongs.
Other times, you keep it as a treasure. A memory of a sun-kissed day full of laughter, waves, sand and happiness everywhere. Mmmmmm....can you smell the Coppertone?
Have a great day and thanks again for all your care!
