Back to Reality

I just spent a week at Cape Cod, MA. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the BEACH!!!!. Have I expressed my love and gratitude about this miracle. I love the sand, the salt water, the rocks, the waves, the lifeguards ;), the food while I eating at the beach, everything! I always leave the beach saying that I going to live closer to the ocean. Right now I am only about forty minutes away from the sound (no waves) and about a hour away from the ocean shore (big waves). I want to be like 15 minutes away from big waves water. I am a big wave chick, I live for bodysurfing and love the thrill of the waves. On our last day at the cape, we had gigantic waves and got my ass handed to me. But even that I love, I love seeing how powerful the earth is and how insignificant we as individuals really are. It makes me really grateful to be alive!

I ran my little heart out while at the cape as well. It always fun to run in a new place. I love running through little neighborhoods, checking out the property for sale.

My son recovered from his pneumonia just in time to have an awesome vacation. He was just sick for about the first day, but like me, he lives for the waves and willed himself to recover! Thanks for the well wishes and advice!

Sounds like a great time. I grew up on the Gulf Coast, but I live in Atlanta now and miss the beach so much. When my kids soccer takes us to Florida, we go to the beach as much as possible. We spent four hours body surfing at Cocoa Beach. What a blast! Glad you had a great time.

Hey thanks for stopping by. I am glad to hear that your son recovered in time for vacation. The beach is a great place to be. I wish I could spend more time there as well.

I ran at the Cape last year and it was really nice. There was a very long running path that probably could have gotten me 20 miles if I needed. I love the ocean smell when I run. Uh, the swamps were not too nice but everything else was good.

I'm with you and your love of the beach. Lately the water here has been freezing...about 54 F or 12 C. Everything aches.

I hope you are re-charged after a great vacation. Take care.

Ditto on the cold water, Robb. One day it was 56 degrees and you literally had to keep moving or you would end up with hyperthermia or is it hypothermia, I can never get that straight :)
