Now, I live 5 minutes from the beach. I still think about going all the time. I go more often, but still not often enough.
My friends hate me posting beautiful photos like this on Twitter and Facebook
Now, I realise, when I am struggling, my energy is here, at the beach, so I go, I walk, I wet my feet, I inspect the beach, I look at things on the waters edge with the curiosity of a child and I enjoy the clarity the fresh air brings me.
I found these on the beach today
The snail like shell is twice the size of a 50 cent piece (The size of an iPhone screen) and was so heavy I thought at first there might still be an animal in it, and the small piece of Mother of Pearl was wet and sparkling in the sun when it caught my eye.
There was lots of seaweed today, like the sea had been rough overnight.
It was calm today. I am calm today. Thanks to my adventure on the beach.
Today I am grateful I live so close to the beach.
