As summer winds down, I find myself longing for the beach more and more. I'm torn between my love for the rolling lush green mountainous area in which I live and the slow-paced life of small coastal towns. I offen take "virtual vacations" to try and appease myself temporarily, but there is no substitute for the smell of the salt air and the sand between my toes, the warm glow on my skin despite wearing sunscreen, the sound of the waves lapping at the shore, watching the birds bathing and fishing at low tide, catching a glimpse of the dolphins at play in the channel, the sunsets...
Is there anyone else out there dreaming of living in a new place?
P.S. Pic taken by my dad on Seahorse Key, with real film. As per usual when on any southern coast or island, I have some bad hair going on. I suppose this is something to think about when considering a move to the coast (I'll add it to the "cons" list). Please note that although it looks like I weed my pants, I just got my shorts wet while wading.
P.P.S. Reminder: The 10% off sale in my vintage shop ends Sunday.
P.P.P.S. Have a great weekend!
