All the Senses

Just a little post here tonight as my senses are keenly aware and sated with the joy of living so near to the ocean on the beautiful elbow of land I call home. The air is heavy with the ocean's brininess. As I sit in my chair the salty breezes keep lifting my spirits even higher. I've just come from a lovely evening with daughter, Sara and her sweet Samantha. We stopped by LM's favorite beach for some kisses and the sunset, to find him pursuing his favorite passion, casting line after line into the creek as the tide recedes, and catching snapper blues in the early evening light, happy as a clam, so to speak.
How fortunate I am to be surrounded by so much love, and now to be able to drift off to sleep on this cool summer evening, as the lovely sea-scented air fills my senses.
Love and soft summer breezes to all!

I am SO jealous. My life's dream--to live near the ocean--will never happen! Glad there is someone I know who can have my dream.

Just to visit would be a dream come true. Like Judy - love the ocean and can remember times in the past when this was experienced.

What a beautiful post. I felt like I was there, seeing what you were seeing, feeling the nice breeze. We don't have breezes here. It's so darn hot. Back in the 90's again. My dad loved the Ocean and I think it was his dream to always go back to New England, but that never happened. Hopefully he is the breeze that you feel and the waves that lap the shore. So glad you are happy!!...debbie

I've been having a rather difficult week and reading this post really made me smile. I can picture being there and it sounds great. It also brought some good memories of fishing in Galilee in RI with my father. Thanks for that. Enjoy!
