Most of my adult life I have lived on or near a beach. I now live in a landlocked state, and I feel it most acutely during the summer! Last weekend I was really missing the beach, so my husband drove me to the nearest lake. We had a lovely day at the lake, but it was not the ocean!
I miss the sound of waves crashing.
I miss the feeling of the sand sliding out beneath my feet as the water washes back out to sea.
I miss watching the boats disappear over the horizon.
I miss body surfing. (Fortunately, there is not footage of me body surfing while 8 months pregnant!)
I miss REAL salt water taffy.
I miss walking on the shores after a storm to see what treasures the ocean left behind.
What I miss most though, is that it was an inexpensive way to spend the day. What do you love or hate about the beach? To see how other blogger's feel about the ocean visit momdot.com.
