The first time someone showed me how to put a shell up to my ear and I could hear the ocean, was the first time I knew there’s truly magic in the world.
After that, I wanted to go to the ocean and listen to it in person. But the ocean was a world away and just a dream for a poor little country girl. The ocean was only for sailors, rich folks and movie stars.
As I grew up, I was overjoyed to learn that anyone could go to the ocean. All it takes is saving money and planning… and that’s just what we did… for many years we made the beach our home for vacation each summer.
It’s been many years since out last vacation there, but we plan to return someday to the tropical dreamland of palm trees, shells, sand, waves crashing, dolphins and enjoy the many enchantments of the salty shores.
Here’s wishing you all a magical joyful day.
