One year, we planned to go to the Outer Banks, but a hurricane beat us there. So, instead of making a left, we decided we'd just make a right and head for the mountains. I did not feel rested at all. Maybe because I grew up in the mountains so it didn't seem like a change at all? That was when I realized how much I love the ocean. Maybe it's the rhythm of the waves... the sound, the pattern. Did you know that what is seemingly a random pattern is in fact a complex fractal geometry? Only the Creator God could order it so.
We're headed to The Shore shortly. I've been meaning to get into bathing-suit-shape, but haven't been making it to the gym. I guess I'll have to be bathing-suit-barely-tolerable-shape. Or maybe I'll just stay on the porch, drinking coffee. Reading a book. Not a bad option.
