I really miss the ocean. I used to live in San Diego, about 10 minutes from the nearest beach (Silver Strand, my favorite). Then we moved about twenty minutes from the nearest beach. Then we moved two hours away.
Not everyone will understand, but to go from living within walking distance of a beach.. to having to drive several hours, well that sucks. The beach is soothing to me. I could sit out there all day, hours on end, just staring at the ocean. The sound of the waves crashing is just loud enough to drown out my thoughts, not loud enough to be annoying. It's beautiful, buzzing with life. And have you ever sat through a sunset at the beach? That's just something else altogether. I don't think I can put into words how much I miss the beach.
This one is a beach in Washington. It was just past sunset but still beautiful!
And this is Silver Strand.. I think the kid on the right adds a nice touch.. ha!
(Remember all the things we wanted
Now all the memories, they're haunted
We were always meant to say goodbye)
