Been a long week for both of us. Feeling sore all around. Bought a new beach blanket and gave it its first test spin. Listened to music and laid with my babe. Cloudy, but hot and humid. The breeze off the water felt good. Felt good to spend some quality time together outside.
By far the most amazing sunset we’ve experienced since the start of our commitment to the beach. Checkout my photos below – I took them in order as the night went on and the changes are so drastic and so beautiful. Started off sunny and nice when we arrived. Clouds started coming in and before we knew it, it was raining. The rain cleared the beach quick and it seemed like it would downpour. It cleared quickly – picture Hawaii-esque rain. Somehow, the storm went around us, but we could watch it in the distance. So many rainbows, but I couldn’t capture them from my phone’s camera. The clouds were unbelievable – what a sight. The beauty of the night made me forget everything in the entire day.
Took the day off work to handle some medical business, so we were able to get to the beach earlier than usual. My sister joined us for the first time. A total scorcher! Around 100F and prime time sun. The sand was piping hot to the point I had to start running as I walked to the water. The water felt good and warmed up a lot. Lots of schools of fish right at the shore. After a few hours and plenty of sun, we walked over to Little Bad Wolf. Felt super drained from a long day in the sun.
My business day wasn’t “smooth,” but was not as rough as recently usual. Finally a sunny day after all the rain. The clouds were looking like art, so I took lots of photos. Fit a semi-nap into the timeline. Used some time to reflect and meditate silently against the sound of the waves. Ended the night with some red sangria and good conversation. An overall wonderful day.
Busy day with business life. Got out a little later than usual, but we were still able to catch the sunset. Tons of seagulls chilled out on the beach near us. Stayed for about 45 minutes before we got hungry. Walked about a mile away and stopped for some Mexican food. Today felt good – nice to relax and unwind before the end of the night.
Put together a playlist of some of my classical favorites. I’ve been into classical music since I was a child, which was heavily influenced by my dad. My mom is also a classical music lover, but my dad really had me listening to classical music nonstop as a child.
If you have any favorites, please feel free to drop a comment and share!
Cloudy when we first got out, but it cleared quickly. Made myself a little sand cupholder. The sand was slightly damp from the rain earlier. The breeze off the water started getting really chilly, so after a short while, we roamed around a bit. Made our way back to the beach at nightfall so I could get in my last beach minutes. Feeling peaceful and quiet. It was nice to sit by the water in silence and reflect.
