Claudine keeps saying she wants to go to the beach. Everyday, over and over, ever since the weather has turned milder. I hear ya, kid. There’s something about seeing the horizon and being lulled by the sound and rhythm of waves that can soothe like no other place can. Almost as if you can feel the waves purging whatever is going on in your life as the water goes further out to sea.
I was never such a fan of summer in the past, but I’m looking forward to staring out into the ocean and mountains in the Pacific Northwest again and swimming in the warmer waters here in the East. In 6 weeks we’ll drive down to the Outerbanks, NC to spend 5 days doing nothing but living on the beach. We all want Memorial Day weekend to come, but once again, time – and this year – is flying by and I’d like it to slow down too. Conflicting, yes?
