I took a moment to put my life on hold and gaze at what nature had to offer to me. I reflected upon all of the other places I could have been instead of standing with my toes curling in the warm sandy beach and smiled in appreciation of my situation. It was perfect weather out for a day at the beach. The clear sky didn’t have a single cloud to block the rays of the radiant sun. I could sense the feeling of ultra relaxation from the outstretched deep blue canopy above and the penetrating warmth that emanated from the sky and wrapped around my skin like a warm blanket on a cold winter’s night.
The sounds of Beach Cala Bassa are that of harmony. One of the sounds I tune to first is the sound of the birds singing and chirping away as if they are creating a song. Seagulls mostly. Peacefully chirping as they soar overhead searching for food. After sitting for a few minutes, I'll hear the light breeze coming down through the trees, rustling their leaves.
It was finally time for our Forest ... ... middle of paper ... ...’s light rays were just starting to fade away when we finished packing up. We sat down the beach front, atesalty and crispy Classic Lays and dazed at the sunset as the sky’s tangelo blush immerses with the azure strokes across the horizon. As the sky covers the warm colors of the sun with cooler hues, I looked up with astonishment. Moments like thisbring back tranquillity to a busy soul. Breaks from my normal routines and going to places like Hijo Banana Beach remove the barriers that keep me preoccupied.
The salty sunrises that go along with Florida mornings are just a small part of the reason why I adore visiting this state so much. Waking up to the sun splashing on my face, I feel warm and stress-free throughout my entire body. When I open my eyes, I see that my previously white, cotton sheets are now tinted scarlet from the glare of the burning sun. I stretch out my sleepy bones and take in the scent of the ocean breeze that has slowly encompassed my space. I gradually get out of bed and walk a straight path to the patio of my hotel room.
As I watched the sunset that glowed hues of pink and yellow I could feel myself become one with the world around me. I smile at the people leaving around me and they smile back. The funny part about the beach is that everyone, no matter what issues that are present in life just wants to kick back and enjoy a relaxing day at the beach. They come to the beach to get away from life problems that boggle their heads and cause tension in their lives. All anyone wants to do is just sit back and relax for the day.
Relaxing on the beach, smelling the cool fresh air with its morning dew so light, I can feel it settling on my skin. The smell of salt is filling my nostrils and I hear the sound of waves crashing. The sky is a mild ashy gray, but the stars aren’t visible because they have descended to a place far beyond my reach. In amazement, I saw out the corner of my eye a falling star that I didn’t see before. I close my eyes and make a wish, praying to my heavenly father that one day it shall all come true.
A Perfect Day in the Ocean As I watch, the waves from the shore look fun and almost innocent as they crest and then crash over one another. I can taste the salt in they air and watch little rainbows glisten through the prisms of the ocean’s spray. The warm ocean water toward the shore is covered with foam and bubbles from the rumbling waves as children and their families play in the gritty tan colored sand. I think to myself, “This is perfect”. I make the final preparations on my Yamaha Waverunner.
After meditating for a while, I felt the warmth of the sun and a waft of the wind that touched my body. I slowly opened my eyes and looked around. The first thing I saw was the light of the sun shining through the trees to the water. I also saw many kinds of the butterflies flying around the area and fish that were swimming through the little pool right under the waterfall. I could smell nature and fresh air and feel the cool water.
We finished eating, then, we started relaxing and taking pictures of the nature around us; from the tree to the water over the flying birds. We had an amazing time. We stayed there all afternoon. I was inspired by the view of the sunset reflecting on the water and the breeze that sways trees and the winds that blow your mind away. It was without any doubt time well invested.
Growing up on an Island is an adventure. The summers are full of swimming, boating, and lobster bakes. Floating the incoming tides on a found piece of driftwood in the warm afternoon sun. Summer residents, and tourists would arrive early in June; making our sleepy little Island explode with activity. The cove filled with people having picnics on the beach.
