This afternoon we will rush off to our favorite place; by the sea.
Laughter will fill the salty air as we stroll along the beach hand in hand.
As the waves crash in and lap at the shore, all of our cares and worries will fade away. It is as if the rushing water comes toward us allowing us to release our burdens. The sea foams, and our troubles are carried out into the ocean, calming and soothing our souls.
This time our four legged companions will accompany us on this journey. We will gallop and play along the sandy shores with our magnificent horses. My daughter will ride her black, brown, and white spotted Pinto pony as she smiles deep within her soul as she asks, “Can we do it again?” And then we’ll gallop some more down the beach, inching our way toward the water.
We’ll take pictures … lots of pictures … and savor every single minute we are together.
With Halloween upon us, we’ll take pictures of the pirates by the sea; my husband and me. My daughter will twirl around as Mal from Descendents with her bold purple hair and evil laughter as she skips down the beach.
Daylight savings time will be upon us Sunday. We are not ready to lose an hour here on the East Coast. That will mean darker days, less evening rides at home, and soon, the cold Winter winds will blow. We will try hard not to think of that during our time by the sea. This last weekend, we will enjoy the sandy shores until the sun is swallowed by the sea and the moon emerges to light up the night sky.
We will make more memories by the sea.
