Where do yo run to when everything is wrong and nothing feels right? There is always that one spot that can soothe all your problems and troubles in times of stress.

“shoots den boo, where and when?” I replied
“this saturday, and we go waimeas or sandys. get cherreh waves”

As I lay all my belongings on the sand, in a nice, perfect position i get dig in my big beach bag which is covered in a baby blue ...view middle of the document...

The surf has ceased to crash on the shores, the placid waves gently roll onto the sand. The sky is transformed into a colorful horizon; filled with endless streams of purple and blue. As the daylight falls to the darkness of night I can feel the change in temperature on my skin. A chilly mist can be felt in the wind blowing off the calm sea. On my walk back along the sand I am reminded of those obligations that have evaded me on my peaceful journey. Tomorrow brings school and practice; however, I am not the least upset. I do not plan waking up the next morning to my body being so damn drained and looking in the mirror to find myself looking like a red lobster and feeling as if nothing is important than sitting in a soothing ice cold bathe from my sunburns.
While I am there, all of my obligations are suddenly erased like pushing control, Alt, and delete on a word document. As I stroll along I can feel the soft smooth sand beneath my feet. I am taken in by the soothing atmosphere that encircles me. I close my eyes, letting myself absorb the blistering rays of the sun on a scorching summer day. The sounds of the ocean comfort me; the rhythmic pounding of the waves repress all of my worries. I glaze into the cloudless cerulean blue sky and witness the perfection of life. With closed eyes, I feel myself drifting endlessly in the wind without a care in the world. As I lay on my towel, I can perceive the children in the golden sand, creating sand castles with their blue and yellow buckets and their red shovels, teenagers jumping off rocks, I notice I’m not the only person determined to get a few shades darker. Now, to focus on why I came here in the first place, let all my problems leave and let me enjoy my time here.
I am relaxed, drift off for a peaceful nap. The cries of a baby awoken me. Her legs kick as she screams because of the waters cold touch, and the bright ball rays shinning so hard on me that my body starts to fire up. My eyes open, to my surprise, the setting sun hangs in the sky like a red-orange balloon off in the distance.
