Today my family went to the beach. We never go to the beach as a family! I'm lucky to go once a year! My mom and I went into the water and chilled ourselves to the bone, BUT kept a smile on our face! :D The last time she went into the water with me like that was in Hawaii two years ago.... She is weird like that. But I love her! <3
I attempted the art of boogie boarding, failing epically(hmm... is this a word?) . I had a few successful rounds, and then came the painful one:
I was positioned into place(or so I thought) and waited for the wave to ease on over. The current was strong(hooray for the element of water!), and I felt weak in its grasp. But I awaited for my fate... unknowing what would become of me.
The wave crashed and caught me right when I exhaled. Meaning, when it forced me under, I was out of breath. My eyes were open for a moment(until I closed them), my mouth filled with salt water(ouchie for my throat), and my nose burned with the ocean water that flooded in. Talk about uncomfortable!
It all happened within a split moment, but it felt as if I were under for a lifetime.
Other than that "slight" accident, I had a blast! Collecting seashells, splashing in the water, watching the dolphins jump across the ocean and put on a show!!!!!!!!!!!, and stroll along the powder soft sand. Hmm...
But I am back in reality.
It was nice to be in paradise, though.
If only for a couple hours!
Do you have any interesting beach stories to share?
