What is it about the beach that takes you away from everything else, without much effort? You just need to park yourself on a chair or sit right on the sand and you’re lost in the sound of the waves and at the sight of the water touching the shore.
It gets to me every time. The sound, the sight, the smell too.
At dawn, while waiting for the sun to rise, the water is deliciously warm, in contrast to the cool, light breeze. At midday, the sun burning bright up in the sky is reflected on the water. At night, under the sky full of stars, you don’t need words.
I can’t describe it, but I truly feel happy when I’m there. The sand under my feet (and later everywhere), the water, the waves. And good company.
