“The Sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.”
When I was just a toddler, my family and I literally lived on the beach. Well, we lived a long a private, gated road about a quarter mile down from the beach. Although I was too young to really remember a whole lot from the time we lived in that house, I vaguely remember long afternoons at the beach. I can't remember a time that I have ever turned down a trip to the coast willingly. I would spend every weekend of the summer there if I could.
There is nothing more relaxing than waking up to the soft roaring of the ocean and taking a quiet walk on the beach. Even better: keep your camera in hand!!
Now - I took a ton of pictures. I have narrowed them down as much as I could, but I really fell in love with some of them and it was hard to pick which ones to share. So there are quite a few to come. I think I will split it up a little bit into another post, though.
Walking the one mile from the main street of Seaside back to our friend's house doesn't seem that far when you are taking pictures all the way back!!
This last one was already included up above - but it was one of my favorites from the day so I wanted to showcase it a little bit:
Like I said before - I actually have a few more pics that I want to share. But this post is already too long (and has taken FOREVER to put together!!) I will post the rest soon...
