I love coming to the beach. I’ve come at least once a year for the entirety of my being. It’s so relaxing to sit in the sun and let the salty breeze envelope you with the taste of the ocean.
I go to a pier early in the morning to see the sunrise. It’s breathtaking. More beautiful than I expect.
It is just after 6 in the morning, but the pier is filled with fishermen within minutes. They don’t seem to be catching much, but I am fascinated by the amount of jellyfish in the water. There are so many just a couple hundred feet from the shore! Some of them move quickly through the water, dodging the fishermen’s hooks.
After a few hours, I leave the pier. Adventures call my name elsewhere. My prime location allows me to walk nearly everywhere.
I just happen to walk past an Italian Ice shop. As I wait for my chocolate ice, I spot the chalk they have out for customers to use. Who says chalk is just for kids?
At the end of the day, I return to the pier for some night time fun.
I love watching the diversity of people all sharing a common interest – the ocean. There must be a couple hundred people on the pier, at least.
The highlight of the night is when someone catches a small stingray. I’m not able to get a fantastic picture, but it was a sight to behold.
Overall, it was a very beautiful and relaxing day.
