Sunrise On the Beach

On this particular day, I was fortunate to capture a lovely sunrise with great clouds in Cape May, NJ.  Being near the beach I feel it's power and it's source of life. The salty smell, the treasure chest of shells, the sounds of the water, the feel of the wind on my face all call to me and give me peace.

Summer at the beach brings back memories of suntan oil that smelled like coconuts and made the sand stick to my skin. There were sand castles to build. I think it was just as much fun to watch the rising surf enter our "moat" and slowly melt the hour-long efforts of my brother and I with our buckets and shovels . And who doesn't remember the joy of feeling sand in awkward places in their bathing suit. YEW!

Summer time with its heat, humidity, thunderstorms, tomatoes, peaches and days at the beach. Life is very good.

  1. Actually having an ocean beach nearby...heavenly.
    Living in Indiana and not traveling much,
    I can count the number of times I've vacationed on the ocean to just a few times.
    However, I understand the lure of the ocean;
    it still calls me.
