Beautiful sandy beach, with no one else in sight. There is a haze over the water, but the sky is clear and a light breeze is blowing. The sun beams down, and the air is heating up from 28 degrees.
We have the whole day ahead of us. No worries, cares, or anywhere we need to be. We spread our beach towels on the ground and get out our magazines and books. Settling in, we relax and enjoy ourselves.
We surf the waves, enjoying the contrast between hot sun and cool water. We climb the rocks, pretending to be mermaids washed ashore. We talk, we rest, we eat our snacks.
And then we get hot. The sun burns our feet as we cross the beach to cool off in the water. The water cools, but our sunburned backs sting, and as we dry off the sand sticks to our burnt skin. Our throats are parched, and we are hungry.
We are on a beautiful sandy beach, with no one else in sight. And we want to go home.
