Hello everyone! So, I’ve noticed that I have been reminiscing about better days on a beach, soaking up the sun and enjoying nature. It’s probably because I’m inside of the house for most of each day:( A life without crashing waves, warm sand, and the sun’s pure light, is really not much of a life at all.
Now, I understand that for some of you this is the life you have right outside of your window (lucky ducks!). For the rest of us, we need to imagine it until better can be done. I have taken the liberty of adding a beach video that you can play at home today. This might be the pick me up you’re looking for! I’m sending “Good Vibes” your way, with the hope that it makes you happy wherever you are.
Here is a little poetry for the full “beach” experience:
A Day At The Beach

The sun and sand go hand in hand.
The sound of constant waves –
There’s a smell of salt in the air.
The ocean is seen through a haze.
The parents bring their children
And watch them play in the sand.
They help them jump the waves
By holding little hands.
The teens exude vitality and youth.
They know they’re coming of age.
They strut and prance and dance around
As if they were on stage.
Lovers strolling hand in hand
Enjoy their day of sun and sand.
They seem to think they’re all alone –
The crowded beach on which they roam.
The old move slow and steady
Thinking it’s no notion.
This could be the last time
They get to see the ocean.
The seagulls glide in circles.
It seems without a care,
But really they are searching
A crumb to catch mid-air.
Scattered on the beach
Are castles made of sand.
Some are small and messy –
Others big and grand.
If one is lucky,
While looking out to sea
They may spot some dolphins
A day at the beach is not complete
Without catching the perfect wave
Or gathering shells along the shore –
Souvenirs of a perfect day…
Enjoy the beautiful weather! Lots of love, and happy Saturday!
