The Last Time: Ocean
The last time I was at the ocean, it was a little bittersweet because I knew it would most likely be a long time before I’d again walk on a true beach. It was also a very beautiful day, and windy too; the sun shone on the water spectacularly, making the waves sparkle and dazzling my eyes.
D, Z, and I walked along the water’s edge, scattering a multitude of seagulls as we tried to stay on the grassy patches. We soon came upon a stony obstacle, a natural pile of big rocks, small boulders really, and we had to climb over them to continue on our way. It was a little hair-raising, and yet exhilarating. Once we were safely over them, we resumed our stroll, following more grassy patches that became larger and divided by tide pool entrances. We finally came to a body of water too wide for us to cross and so we turned back along the path to home.
All in all, it was a pleasant excursion, despite the cranky five-year-old doing his best to drive his parents batty. I must say, he very nearly succeeded.
