The Beach, My Sanctuary.

San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua

I took this photo in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua

The beach is a tranquil place. The ocean’s salty ocean breeze, the smell of the sea and the coolness of the wind all adds to the beach’s refreshing and relaxing atmoshphere.

I have layed on white sands and have snorkled among tropical fish that live in the Caribbean’s colorful reef.  I have stood on top of large cliffs, looking down at waves breaking against the rocks.  I have swam in the pacfic ocean in mid-fall with nothing but a swimsuit! Crazy, huh? But my body quickly numbs to the chilled winds and ocean waters.

I go to the beach to be present. It is a place where I do not have to ponder over the worries of life, plans for tomorrow or the happenings of yesterday.

Me, running.

My mom snapped this photo of me running on one of  Oregon’s beaches.  I am dressed for the city with my sleek black boots, white fashonable coat and my coffee.  Maybe I should actually be running to catch the subway…haha. The coast is always a familiar place, a sanctuary of peace, regardless of where I am.
