Yesterday at lunchtime, I went towards the water and grabbed a quick bite to eat and got a cup of coffee. I then kicked off my shoes, rolled up my pants cuffs and walked on the beach for about half an hour. As a boy who grew up landlocked in Nebraska and Kansas, it seems surreal to me that this is even available to me. It sure is nice to live and work somewhere where it’s so simple to go to the beach that you can do it even if you only have a few minutes to spare for it. It sure makes for an agreeable spring day.
