I am so there in spirit with them that I can almost feel my hair blowing back from the sea breezes coming off the water and feel the gentle Sea Spray falling on my face after large waves crash on the beach.
When I chose the name for my blog ...that is what I called sea spray. Actually ...it is the gentle sea mist that I love the feel of on my face. Mindful of the changing tides, I usually like to have everything as close to the water as possible. I cannot fathom how most people can sit up on the main part of the beach ...never mind the ones who sun bathe all the way at the back of the beach. UGH!
Why would anyone do that? It's way to hot! And if the ocean is the main attraction ...why not be as close to it as possible?
Anyway, I love how sea mist feels when it falls on me when I am near the waves. And I do love sea spray that splashes up with such force after a wave crashes against the sand and/or rocks.
We only live 2 hours away from where I grew up and usually go to the beach and yet I have not gone down to the ocean since we stayed there in summer, 2005. I cannot believe so much time has passed (seven years!) and I have not gone there even once. True a lot of things happened ...health issues, other people I was close to getting sick and dying and other concerns. Although ...while we can't take a vacation ...day trips are certainly doable.
I just got out of the mode.
So ...it is on my agenda before summer ends. :)
I would've loved to have brought Iris down last summer. That is where we met. I lived down there and they had a summer house across the street. We had the BEST summers! Life wasn't always easy for me ...even as a young child ...but those summers were near magical and still are in my mind's eye. Perhaps even more so as I think back on them. But ...this could all go into another post sometime.
I have a follow-up uro appointment tomorrow and am always more thoughtful prior to those. I deleted a lot of what I wrote.
Anyway ...I am still doing well and both happy and relieved about that. :)
Anyway ...I hear the pool calling me! ;)
