I don't think words can express how calm and refreshed being near the sea makes one feel. I'm not the kind of person who likes to lounge around in a bikini (well especially in the middle of winter and frankly, I just don't have the body for it, but...I digress...), but rather, I go to the beach fully clothed and walk around searching for sea glass and gazing into the vast waters that go on for forever, imagining that if I look hard enough I can see Japan from where I stand or a ship from the 1700s in the midst of a voyage. The ocean holds far too many secrets and I enjoy nothing better than to spend a day (or even an hour) just taking it all in. What do you do at the beach? Does it inspire you?
