the simple life
There is no place I enjoy more than the beach. The everyday life of sun, swimming, and lounging. I crave that laid back lifestyle and wonder if the simple life is better? While spending the 4th of July holiday weekend at the beach I came across an ad for the 30-A beach town...Seaside, that read...SEASIDE a beach town that embraces the luxury of simplicity. I've been going there for years and could never put my finger on what made it so perfect...was it the white picket fences, the tin roofs, the pastel drenched streets of scrub brush and oaks, the old time atmosphere, or the beach itself? And there it was...so perfectly explained...it was luxurious with all it's offerings...yet so simple in it's roots. There is a symbiotic balance of life there...and up and down 30-A. A balance that requires a little linen, a little bathing suit, a little shell picking, a little mercury glass...a lot of lounging, a lot of sand, a lot of swimming, and a lot of sunscreen! I'm bound to find that balance here at home...away from the beach. A balance that won't include an everyday abundance of free time, sunshine, swimming, lounging, or picket fences. But...a balance nonetheless that is...well...luxuriously simple!
