Life sometimes presses in on us from all sides. We get stressed, obsessed, depressed, and often we don’t know where to go for a moment of peace or comfort.
Growing up along the Atlantic coast, I found out at an early age that there is something absolutely amazing and wonderful about the ocean. The rhythmic waves seemed to lull me into a place of calm, and to this day, that still happens. Give me a day by the sea, and I’ll show you how quickly the stresses of life can subside!
No, I don’t live “by the sea” any more. I live in the rolling hills of Pennsylvania. And, while there are times when these hills and mountains are more than majestic and provide me with tremendous beauty, I still find my most treasured moments of relection and relaxation are times spent by the sea.
Please scroll along with me and enjoy some of my most peaceful places by the sea. Ahhh….I can almost smell the salt air being carried ashore by the gentle breezes.
What a life! Walking along the shore…..just me and the constant, reassuring rhythm of the waves!
