.just be.

What is it about being at the beach that makes you feel so good?! I took the kids to the beach for lunch and a play today and we came home feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. The last two days have been warm enough for me to go swimming - like right in! It felt so good, whenever I go swimming in the ocean I get this overwhelming sense of connection. Connection with myself and those around me, connection with nature, and as the water rolls around me I feel as if I am connected with every part of the world. Isn't it amazing that the water I am standing in has traveled around the world? Anyway, I'm rambling on. There was no swimming today, we ate our lunch and I read my magazine while Oscar played in the sand and chased the crabs. Oscar was drawing in the sand and asked me to come and draw with him, so I did. He saw that I was writing something and started scribbling some little characters then ran over to me exclaiming, "Mum, five and six!" pointing to his writing! So cute.

I'm so jealous that you guys live so close to the beach! I would be down there everyday if I lived so close too. So nice for the kids.
