  • Favorite thing about the beach: The relaxing sound of the rolling waves that at times move to a crashing crescendo, the smell of the sea air, the fog sitting on top of the horizon, the earthiness of the salt mixed with sand between my toes, the hope of seeing a mermaid sunbathing on top of one of the rocks.
