Last day on the beach
We're on our way to the beach this morning. We'll be on our way to a different beach this afternoon, and probably a third beach this evening. It's our final day on the island and we will be working on building a strong enough representation of an island beach that we will be able to call it up at will over the months it takes us to return to PEI.
The key to the day is to breathe salt air, feel the sand under our bare feet and the waves as they splash at our ankles. To notice the blue of the sky and the green of the potato fields and the different green of the grass on the dunes. To hear the wind and the waves. To gentle ourselves into the rhythm of this place, without consciousness of holding on or of letting go.
Enjoy your weekend.
