Between Athena and I, I don’t know who is more obsessed with the beach. We think about it all the time. It’s the number one place that comes to mind when we think about family, peacefulness, and happiness. I could spend an entire day at the beach doing absolutely nothing and I would still leave feeling fulfilled. It was calling our name so we made the 3.5 hour journey to Kiawah Island Golf Resort in South Carolina for a weekend of beach heaven.
We opened the balcony doors and stepped out side at 9 am. The beach was perfection already. A few people were enjoying a morning walk along the shore as the soft waves rolled in. It was a cool morning, but that’s why jackets were invented.
Athena, Darren, and I got dressed in the warmest clothes we brought with us and made our way to the beach. Athena’s face lit up when her feet touched the sand. It was cold and damp but our hearts were warm.
By mid-morning, the temperatures had risen to a comfortable level. We danced and sang summer tunes and we were able to live in the moment. Work, computers, and even cell phones were non-existent. Only the camera was from this earthly world, everything else was a dream.
We go to the beach not to get away from life but to live it more fully, which is also why I have a bucket list.
