You can spend a day at the beach soaking up the sun and putting your toes between the sand and have the day fly by.

Somehow the day goes fast and you just can’t figure out where the time went.

They do say that time flies when you’re having fun.

And that holds true for me.

I spent a day at the beach (just one of many trips this summer) and it was very relaxing.

It’s nearly summer and you could practically say that I had the beach to myself. There were very little distractions.

Just a few people walking by along the shoreline, more than enough seagulls that try to snatch your favorite potato chips, and hearing the rumbles from the ocean.

This made it all for a very nice day. The temperature was about 73 degrees and some clouds. Trust me, it felt a little chilly when the sun was covered. Luckily, there was more sunshine than anything.

And I even took a few dips in the ocean once I did warm up from sitting out.

That was definitely chilly.

I also took a walk on the beach. And as I’m walking, I realized a few things.

There’s a lot to notice. A beach isn’t just sand and water, but a work of art.

If you’re looking to take pictures along the way, you’ll run into endless options. I’ve only lived by the shore for about a year and I like to think that I have an endless amount of shore pictures… and each one is different.

Different is good though. And as I scroll back and look at each of these photos, not every single one of them turns out amazing, but each photo tells a story.

A story that will last a lifetime.

As I continued my walk down the street, you’ll also notice not just art, but nature. And you wonder why are these here… like these rocks.

Is this considered to be natural or just a way to help keep the sand on the beach?

They’re actually called a ‘jetty’ and they help prevent erosion or to prevent sand drifting back into the ocean or another part of the beach.

I looked at this jetty with a different view and captured the beauty of it with the nature growth of the algae.

If you look deep, there are a lot of images to capture. You just have to put your mind to it and adventure out into this beautiful country.

As I began my walk back, I crossed paths with what I have seen already. It looked the same, but yet different. This time it was from a different angle, and somehow this still brought new thoughts.

Before, the north side was to my back and now I get to view it. The coastline goes for miles and miles and it’s all taken for granted. The only thing we can do is keep our Planet clean, and cherish what we have… maybe capture every moment and document what we have.
