There are times when you scroll through the back of your camera and you are pleased with the pictures and excited about the shot you captured. And then there are times that magic happens. Like the picture is more than just good. It is everything. It takes you right back to that place, that time, that feeling. It is pure magic.
I don't think of myself as a a beach person. I don't like to be hot. And I don't like to swim. I was wrong. The beach is strength and peace and joy and curiosity and contentment and happiness. Pure happiness. I was so wrong about being a beach person. I want to go back. Again and again.
But when I cannot, I will go back to these photos. They are magic. Because they are everything that I felt and more.
A beach vacation photo dump over on A Tale of Two Mamas today. Make yourself a pina colada and take a trip to the sea.
