No phone signal.
I love everything about the ocean: The smell, the sand, the sea spray. I love watching the waves roll in, one after another, as the tide moves in and then sucks back out again. I love looking towards the horizon and seeing an expanse of endless blue. I love the sound of it at night as it lulls you to sleep, and the salty freshness of the morning air.
This is my favourite retreat.
It is my second home, the one that is familiar and the one to which I belong.
Of course, no matter how long we stay it is never quite long enough.
