I grew up in a place where the beaches are abundant around me. I can go almost anytime, but during the course of my life, the city beguiles me. I go to the beaches to escape the fast-paced life I have been enduring.
I've left that place behind (for personal reasons); and I miss the beaches terribly. Where I am at right now only offers lakes (that's a clue!) and they aren't even remotely close to the real salt-water-almost-near-the-ocean-type of beach. *sigh*
Perhaps one day I may see the beach again; I may smell the freshness of salt water; and I may feel the ravage quietness the beach entices.
