“We know only too well that what we are doing is nothing more than a drop in the ocean. But if the drop were not there, the ocean would be missing something.”― Mother Teresa
I am thrilled to live close to the ocean again. The Pacific waters are different from those of the Atlantic, but the fact of having the open water and beach near is a happy fact as is.
Last night was so lovely and warm. Although it is almost the end of November, the sun was so welcoming and playful, it was no decision, really, that another day at the beach was set for us on a Sunday agenda. The church liturgy ended by 9 am and even with San Francisco early sunsets we still had a beautiful full day ahead of us. Considering it is late autumn on the calendar, it was pleasantly surprising for me to discover that although cool, the water was very swim-able, and there were few people on the beach that were doing just that. Something that - should we have a few more nice days like that - I may just brave as well. After all coming home to Christmas decor after swimming at the beach would be a fist for me - why not , right?
I love open water and the beach. It calms me. It has magnificent beauty, power and gentleness at the same time. It mystifies me and allures me in. And it appears that my love for the open seas has been passed down the bloodline.
^^ she would stay at the sand forever, should we let her to ^^
I have about 100 more pictures of this, which I will post as soon as I get to it ( schools , work and homework, you know... ), but until then , Instagram knows much of our life ( and you don't have to have a phone to follow us there either )
Withing you a wonderful start of a new week
Monday filled with light and happiness!
