I love the smell of salt water in the air.
I am just drawn to the sounds, sights, and smells of being on the water. I often wondered if that had anything to do with having 2 grandfathers that worked the waters or just the fact I live near the Pamlico Sound.
I find myself often escaping to the water at one of the little outlets here in my home town. I can go to an old bridge and look out and see the boats docked out in the waters. Or I can go to the location where our former hospital use to be see all those fishing and look at the sunset while sitting at the pier pic nic table. Other times I go down to the little center where there is beach and sit with sand in my toes and the waves crashing on my feet and I find it to be a pure delight to my soul. To have a place to enter a place of such beauty and begin to enter a state of peace inwardly.
The water calls me often to come and visit and I enjoy visiting the beach. Looking forward to returning soon.
