It's amazing to me that you can desire something so deeply that the emotion can become almost physical. You know, really puts the "feel" in "feeling." Like, PHYSICALLY I need the beach. I want it. I need it. Deep down in me, I have a drive to do whatever is necessary to get to a beach at least a million times a year. I'll negotiate for 3 times, as a minimum.
I don't know what magic lure beach has on me, because I honestly don't do more than my cycle of: lie on the beach and read for an hour, go in the ocean for an hour, eat. Repeat. It's just brings so much happiness to my soul.
Here are photos from a couple of different trips to Newport and Huntington.
