I have spent the summer enjoying everyone else's pictures of the beach. I love seeing happy little faces enjoying the sand, parents relaxing, and beautiful waves. I wanted to go to the beach too! Alas, it wasn't in the plans this summer - or was it?
I live outside of Atlanta - no where near the ocean. But we do have a lake with sandy shores. So, staycation day three was going to be a beach vacation.
I couldn't have asked for a more perfect day. My kids playing close by in the water with friends. A light chirp of birds in the background. Soft breezes occassionally wisking along the worries of the last three months. The soft line of trees dancing in across the water. Not a cloud in the sky. Low humitity. It was a perfect day and I didn't have to drive 4 screaming kids 6+ hours to enjoy it. It was wonderful. So wonderful in fact, that I didn't even mind that I left the memory card for the camera at home.
