Life's A Beach...

After more than five decades living in the foothills of Colorado, land-locked, I dreamed of a day I could retire and live on the beach. Well, I'm not exactly situated ON the beach, but I am just minutes from its beauty [and sometimes, wrath]. I enjoy every minute I spend time there. It can be calming to all my senses, sparkly, moody, salty, filled with life, or when I'm all alone with nothing between me and the sea, I'm at the height of tranquility. We have seasons too, but those up north wouldn't agree. We've had December and January snowfall, Spring storms, Summer hurricanes, extreme heat of the south [near tropical], but the sea breeze year 'round makes me content with the world. I can be on the beach and literally forget what's happening around the world, or stresses of a broken appliance or lawn needing a good mowing, laundry, cooking dinner, etc. and be one with nature.  See if you don't agree...
