We did something on Sunday that we haven’t done all summer long, although I do know why we waited until now to do it. We spent time alone - together at the beach.
We are not crowd people, we both work in environments that mean we are never alone. So anytime spent together quietly is cherished. That means the beach during the summer months is not the place to be. It’s crowded with tourists, happy kids, and barking dogs.
But it’s a different beach when summer ends, a endless stretch of sand, and sun, no echo’s but the waves. Of course there are still people, but there is also silence, and a glistening spark of light off of the waves.
Perfection is sitting on a salt encrusted log, coffee in hand, the sun warming our faces, and having no one intrude on our space. We could watch the happenings from afar.
When a crow dropped in to visit, I managed to grab some shots without scaring him off. The seagulls flew overhead, and the sunlight shimmered through their feathers.
Time spent together is time expanded, loved, and remembered. A few moments in our lives, that refreshed our souls. Something to carry us through the rain that surely is coming.
What’s your favourite “beach time space?”
