As I feel the soft wind blowing over my face, the shinny rays of sun touching my skin and the salty smell of sea water, I am writing my thoughts on this blog post. Using only a pen my words flow on the white paper, as seagulls fly into the air.
There is really nothing like the sound of the sea waves coming in and out and the feel of sand in between your toes. It’s my favorite scenery to brain storm ideas, to create, to write.
We are the fortunate ones that have a beach house on the sea coast. This is my favorite place on summer. Here we’ve spent most of the summer, one and a half month, but I will tell you about it in another post.
I simply love the sea. I love the crowded beach full of people and kids. Their laughter and giggles fill the breezy and salty air. I love the light created by the sun rays on the water surface. I love admiring seashells in the sand. I love resting by the beach and I also love the feel of the water on my body.
Although fall is coming, the warm, hot summery days are still here. So, this weekend, we decided to do our last trip to the sea for this year. As he hears the news of departure, my son started jumping full of joy, singing through the house: “We’re going to the sea! I’m going to jump into the water! Yeah!”
Who do you think was the first one to wake up Saturday morning, when we decided to leave? Our son, David, of course. He was completely ready for this weekend adventure. Still sleepy, we tried to get up. Daddy prepared breakfast for us, while I packed some clothes for everyone.
After breakfast, we were ready to go. Of course that David slept almost the entire road trip, which allowed me to tweet freely and do some research on the web for some topic ideas I had.
When we arrived, we’ve met with some friends who also have kids, one 6 year old boy and a 4 year old girl. We had something to eat at a local restaurant and headed to the beach. David was thrilled to have more kids around. Just like us, he loves being surrounded by people.
The first thing he wanted to do was to swim in the water, so that’s what he did, together with daddy, the other kids and their dad. It was “daddy time”. We, girls, were planning to rest on the beach chairs under the umbrellas. It was my time to rest, to calm down, to peacefully meditate.
Although I was resting, my phone was glued to my hand (I’m a phone addict). I had some ideas on how to improve my writing skills and some other ideas on different topics I wanted to consider for my blog. I could be blogging all day long, but I have a family and more important responsibilities to consider.
The guys created a beautiful sand castle and I think that the bigger boys were more proud to build it than the kids. It was their time to remember how to be kids.
Everyone was feeling happy and everyone enjoyed the fresh air of summer.
Without any more words, I will let the picture speak from themselves.
The time to leave came pretty soon, but our little trip to the sea was well worth it.
How did you enjoy the last days of summer? What do you prefer: the sea or the mountains?
