We sat upon the softness of the sand and watched a handful of people who dared enter the water on such a cool day. As they walked past they waved hello and smiled - a true sign we weren't in the city anymore. People were friendly here.
As I walked into the ocean, for this first time this summer, I felt a warmth like never before. The water was icy but I felt so warm. It was the kind of warmth you feel when you come home after a long trip, or the warmth you feel when you jump into your partners arms after not seeing them for a few weeks. I felt at peace, as if nothing else mattered in the world except for me and this ocean before me.
A true harmony within me was formed. It felt good.
It was good.
