Just back from a week’s vacation to one of my favorite places, York Harbor, Maine. Summer vacations are best when they include a string of lazy days spent lounging on a beach.
My body instantly relaxes with the first deep breath of salt air. I take in all the sights, sounds, and scents – damp tangled seaweed, fishy sea creatures, sun-baked driftwood, the shell strewn sand. The sun warms my skin as I listen to the rhythmic roll of the waves, the calls of hungry seagulls, the playful laughter of children. The cool ocean breeze blows a salty film on my sunscreened skin. York Beach and a good book are all I need. I dig my feet in a little deeper and find the cooler sand.
