The beach is a favorite place. The place cleanses my soul. I slow down there. Breathe deeper there. I walk barefoot in the soft sand there. Rest, think, and play there.
Though the kids are older they still play in the sand. I do too.
I build a sandcastle or sculpt something each year. Last year I sculpted a happy sun and used seaweed for the sunglasses and shells for the smile. My kids loved this.
I did too.
