The Beach

I didn't take this photo (have not had a chance to download my pictures yet...) but this is the beach I am currently enjoying.  I'll be writing more about the trip, but for now I only have a few brief sentences about this glorious spot of earth.  

The constant whoosh of the waves rings in my ear as the wind tugs at the few loose curls peeking from beneath my pink straw hat.  I look down at my toes, astonished at their unfamiliar dark brown hue and absentmindedly dig at the baby soft sand with the back of my heel.  Against the diamond sparkle of the waves, I see the kids splashing and laughing in the endless rolling waves.  I just sit and soak it all, every last bit of it, up.
