Five Minute Friday: Favorite

Spent a bit more than five minutes to add pictures. ๐Ÿ™‚

slo12I probably couldn’t tell you why my favorite place became the beach. There is not a specific event in my past that reminds me that it’s a good place. It’s just a feeling I get when I’m there that I cannot attain anywhere else. There is a sense of peace and calm and contentment that is never quite with me in any other place.

slo2-16It can be any shore: The ocean, a lake, a gulf, a river, a stream. It doesn’t matter, as long as water meets the land it is the same.
slo3-4It excites my curiosity in a way no other place does. There are interesting things everywhere, but nothing is as interesting as even the sand along the shore.

slo 4-12I had forgotten all of this. In the course of the 21 years, I forgot this part of myself, just as I forgot all the other parts of myself. I rediscovered it by accident when I took the kids to San Luis Obispo last year. And in doing so I began to rediscover myself. To do so as my kids discovered the beach for the first time was a blessing.

  1. Yes, I love the beach as well! A quiet beach though… not a lot of people but just a sandy place where we find peace and rest in just relaxing! Thanks for sharing this with us! Love the pictures! (Your neighbor at #FMF) Happy Friday to you!

  2. I love the beach too! Not a huge fan of the sand, but the waves and the shore – paired with an umbrella and a good book – pure bliss. Thank for sharing your favorite with us. Blessings!
