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.
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.
