Spending a week at and on the beach has a calming influence. A week with no TV and limited media contact of any kind, Mariners lost again, removes you from the problems that so fill our thoughts on a daily basis. The waves never stop their rush to the shore and provide a movie and music that relaxes the body and calms the soul. I spent hours just reading and enjoying natures display.
The five-hour ride back sets you up for a change and turning on the TV and listening to the news completes the unpleasant return to the ‘Real World’. I’ll try to adjust, or maybe just go back to the beach.
