When life gets really busy and you’re trying to do a million things to get somewhere you want to be in a specific area, sometimes you need a break to just sit and relax and enjoy something that makes you happy. For me, water, and the ocean in particular works wonders. The pure and natural beauty instantly lift my mood. I’m not the type to go to the beach to get a tan, I go to enjoy the view and to put my feet in the water. If you’re living in a bustling city, the serenity of the ocean does even more for relaxation. Yesterday I took the day with a friend, since we both had the day off to take a day trip to the beach. It did start thunderstorming, which was quite comical at the time, but we both got in some much needed time by the shore.
