Fun, well-written account of a beautiful childhood memory. I could feel the wonder of the child and the longing of the adult.
What a cool story! I love hearing of your childhood memories.
This brought clearly to my mind the anticipation of traveling to the beach with our children, my impatience to be there, just as great as theirs. Thanks for the reminder!
i can relate through a 13 hour journey to our beech in Kenya with the same warm Indian ocean during Decembers. Some of my happiest holidays and memories. Well done.
Beautiful story.
It sounds like it was worth the long trip and that you have some nice memories of the beach. I'd love to live in a warmer climate if it was an option.
I really admire the momentum of this piece. It gave the feeling of travel. It keeps a great pace and uses description really well without the reader getting bogged down or lost in too many pretty sentences. I smiled through the whole piece!
