The call of the ocean
When you realize it's a long way down.
I know, I know. Everyone's all about pumpkin this and pumpkin that and apple picking and leaves that have already changed color, but technically it's still summer. With 90% humidity. (Confession: we've picked apples because waiting means mangy leftovers and I've admired the colorful leaves and I don't mind that it's much cooler at night because our central air remains busted.) At the beginning of the summer, Rich and I committed to exploring and getting out more and I feel like we made that happen. We're drawn to the ocean with its salty air and lapping waves. (Trust me, you learn to get over the sand that can never be fully removed from your car.) This may have been our last beach day of the year. Beach day defined as wearing swimsuits and actually swimming in the ocean. Fortunately, for us, the Cape is beautiful year-round. We'll be back soon.
