Beach, Life is

i. Early morning in Rayong

ii. Some of my happiest childhood memories are those spent on the beach.

iii. History repeats itself. When I told the kiddo that we would celebrate the new year at the beach, I saw my own excitement many years before in him. “Mommy, I can’t sleep. How many hours til we go?” Precisely the same lines I used to bother his Grandma with as soon as a beach day was announced.

iv. Nang Ram Beach near Pattaya, 1-1-2018

v. The latest beach I have been to was in Rayong yesterday which was also Teacher’s Day in Thailand.

vi. Bangkok campus administrators of the university I work in treated lecturers to a beachfront breakfast. Then set us loose on the beach. I take it they were expecting us to be refreshed and re-energized to tackle another year of academia. Well, it’s a win-win.

vii. Natural exfoliant on one’s toetips

viii. Beach benefits natural and free
ix. What really made the day remarkable for me was my beach read – breaking news back home and a beach hottie’s thoughts on this triumph of the law.

x. Life’s a bitch to brats. Long story. I provided links in case anyone is curious. Meanwhile…

xi. Beach. Life is. And more
xii. like “the three great sounds of nature are the sound of rain, the sound of primeval wood and the sound of outer ocean on the beach” ~ Henry Beston


xiii. On Chesil Beach  ‘the truly great books are those that are constantly revelatory’

    I count the days until visiting a beach, too. But in my case, it might be years apart. Unless you count river front.
