My heart aches because I didn't get to take a drive up to the beach this weekend. Got stuck at home doing laundry and errands yesterday. Basically getting ready for the coming week. My love for the ocean is endless, and when I retire I would like to live as close to the beach as possible. Though I'm not too far away from the coast it does take a few hours to get there and back. To get a chance to take in the fresh salty air, and feel the cool breeze- I need a few hours there to recharge. It's like a mini get away from my everyday fast pace routine. For now these pictures will have to do.
