My body instantly relaxes as I step into the warm sand, feeling it squish up between my toes. I smell the most wonderful scent of all, the smell of the salty sea. I hear the joyful sound of the seagull’s call, as they fly free. They are welcoming me back to the place that has forever captured my heart.
Where my soul is refreshed, and worries washed away by the waves of the sea. Where time stands still as I soak in the joy of the moment. When the pleasures of the sea grab hold of me like an octopus and don’t let go. My heart smiles as I pick up seashells; my gift from the sea.
My friend and I walk along the edge of the sea, talking, laughing and sometimes just being silent, letting the waves speak.
Knowing in our hearts that there is no other place we would rather be!
Could we be mermaids in disguise … probably!
** We aren’t at the beach yet, but I am dreaming, as the countdown has begun! **
