Alone on the Beach

Today Stan has gone fishing.  Left at 5:00 a.m. and luckily he didn't wake me.  So I had a delicious, snore-free sleep in.  Had my coffee on the balcony.  Ate a little fruit.  I believe this could be my best birthday morning ever!

The internet was down this morning for three hours.  I realize I have a severe addiction.  I was sure that I was missing out on interesting Facebook news.  And can you image all the pins I missed on Pinterest?  I shudder to think.  Stan had downloaded "Allied" for me so I tangled myself up in the sheets and watching the movie.  It was excellent.

I went for a walk on the beach.  Alone.  Literally alone.  I don't think I've ever been on a long stretch of beach with not another soul on it.  Usually you can walk for 20-25 minutes in both directions of our condo so it really is a big long beach.  But since the tide was coming in and it was lunch time I was completely alone.  It was a remarkable feeling.  The was no noise but for the waves.  No one to judge me in a bathing suit. No one to make idle chit chat. No one to see that I am have a very bad hair day. I waded in the waves and just took it all in.  It was peaceful.  It is not a feeling that I will soon forget.  I love my alone time.  I appreciate that Stan is an excellent travel partner but being with someone 24-7 leaves you breathless.  This morning I caught my breath.

I wish I had some deep profound message for you all but I really hope that somehow today you all have a chance to catch your breath....
