The blue of the water peeked through the trees, inviting yet intimidating. The waves were up, crashing on the beach, then pulling back. Sailboats could be seen out on the water, and, further out, fishing boats going out for the day. The green foliage on the trees made an excellent frame for nature’s picture. The sun was shining, and joy was in the air. The wind was up, but only enough to create an aura of excitement, not enough to make one want to run for cover. Off to the left was a trail leading down to the beach. Do we take that trail, or do we leave our memories here?
