I was personally long overdue for a day at the beach. It's therapy, friends. The soft sand, the steady drone of the crashing waves, the whistling of the wind, the soft, warm heat penetrating through the clouds, and just the bigness of it all.
Frisbees were thrown. Candy was eaten. Sand was dug in. Walks on the beach were taken. Trails through the nearby swamp were explored (no pictures of this, as I decided to just live the moment instead of trying to immortalize it with my slightly cumbersome camera; sometimes you just have to leave it behind, although after all the gorgeous beauty, including an INCREDIBLE "octopus" tree, I did begin to regret not having it!). Oh and more candy was eaten, since nobodies counting at the beach, right?
I love my friends. It was a perfect day, where we laughed, played around, and just got closer as a unique group of young-ish adults.
