the beach

At the beach, life is different. Time doesn't move hour to hour but mood to moment.
We live my the currents, plan by the tides and follow the sun.

We know this to be true.

On our Hilton Head getaway, the beach {which provided the perfect balance of fun and relaxation} was a favorite spot. How could it not be?!

I never want to forget...
the look on Si's face when he splashed in the ocean for the first time
the way the sand felt between my toes
the thrill of seeing groups of dolphins leaping from the water
the sight of my boys exploring and swimming and digging together
the way the 3 of us laughed and splashed and played
the majesty of the Creator's sea

Thankfully, I have a few photos to help me with that....
