She stood in the warm sand, massaging her feet as they sank into the soft grains, squinting in the sunlight and surveying the natural beauty around her. She had never been to the beach before. She breathed in deeply, reflecting on her newfound love for the smell of the sea-salt air. Delicately, she pointed the toes of her right foot and dipped them into the ocean. The water swelled and rushed toward her, covering her legs, almost up to her knees. The breeze swelled in and out just as the water did, and her light hair danced around her. She gazed at the astounding variations of blues and greens before her, rising and falling, sparkling in the sunlight. She closed her eyes, feeling the breeze ripple through her long eyelashes. The breeze pulled downward, and then pushed up again. She lifted both arms and let the power of the wind pick them up. ‘This is what it feels like to fly’ she thought.
Have you ever been to the beach? Better yet, do you remember your very first time there? It was a beautiful, surreal experience for me.
