For some reason there's something about the waves, the sand, the sun, and the smell of that island sunscreen that just makes me happy. It makes me smile and relax.
I have always wanted to live on the beach. I love that I live close enough to take a day trip. I wouldn't mind living closer, but it tends to get pricey on living situations.
This weekend I also realized that I enjoy lakes as well. I wasn't at a lake, but I thought about times I was. I like being able to swim, dive, and be in the calm water playing around. Lakes usually have trees and other pretty surroundings. It's easier to swim and dive in a lake.
But oceans are exciting. They have more to offer, you always have to be ready for the next wave, and it's beautiful!
The question is: Do I live near the beach, or near the lakes? Which one do I like more?
(I really need to try smiling more in pictures.)
