1. Yesterday RW and I drove a friend's son home from school. They live in a house on the beach. It was a wildly windy day but the sun was shining and since we were there, we decided to go get our toes wet.
2. We found some shells and snapped photos of ourselves looking like giants with the sun at our backs and our shadows extending toward the sea.
3. A while back a blogger I enjoy mentioned that she made a promise to herself to get outdoors at least once everyday. I know for a fact that my state of mind improves tremendously when I have the chance to hear the birds chirping, feel the breeze in my hair, let the sunshine kiss my skin. As you can see by the expressions on our faces, our spirits were high despite the chilly air. We both felt refreshed even though our throats are still sore and we have not fully recovered from our sick week now two weeks ago.
7.5 We left our mark in the sand yesterday and promised ourselves to be back sooner than later to soak up the simple pleasures of a quick visit to the beach. Maybe you can make time to stop by the nearest natural wonder in your area this weekend. It does perk up the soul!
