It's that time of year... Summer has arrived and that means one thing. VACATION!
My favorite place to vacation has always been the beach. Salt air, sand, the sound of sea gulls and waves crashing against the shore, it all feeds my soul.
I think it's one of the very best places to watch a sunrise or sunset. And it's the first place where I saw a glimpse of how many stars number the sky. You can't see very many stars, living in the city, but out on a beach at night, in the absence of artificial light, the view is breathtaking.
Growing up, I spent summers at the Jersey shore. (Fun fact: people who go to Jersey beaches don't "go to the beach," they go "down the shore."). I was used the dark blue waters of the Atlantic. But a few years ago, I had the chance to go to Miami, and the ocean there was light, pretty, and clear.
I'm looking forward to adding other beaches to my list. Give me sun, sand, and surf, and I'm happy.
