Long Beach Island
On Friday night, we drove down to Long Beach Island to spend the weekend at a rented vacation home with some friends (we were guests). I wasn't feeling 100%, although the laid-back tenure of the weekend's plans allowed for plenty of rest and relaxation. At the conclusion of two days almost exclusively characterized by napping, board game playing, movie watching and chicken-noodle soup eating, T and I took a few minutes to walk along the water's edge. While the salty air and gentle lapping of the waves certainly helped to calm some of my restlessness, upon our departure, I couldn't deny the familiar ache for more precious time with the sea. We've been talking a lot about our future and a move/lifestyle change just might be on the horizon. Time will tell.
Also, this article touched me tremendously. Something to think about.
