Blogger Diary: Stillness On The Shore

Post image for Blogger Diary: Stillness On The Shore

A friend’s birthday celebration had me located on Long Beach Island this weekend. I woke early Saturday morning and wandered down to the shore. For something so packed in the high of summer, the winter has turned the island into a desolate patch of sand and sea.

As I made my way over the dune, I was the only one on the beach. Sea birds glided in the wind and the only sound heard was the crashing of waves. The shore itself was untouched. Footprints were non-existent except for the ones I made myself, and as houses stood tall in the sun, they were lacking any form of company.

I sat and looked around me. It’s nice to be surrounded by nothing else except miles of coastline. I let my thoughts come and go and just relaxed. There’s something comforting about the beach in the winter. You may not be able to bask in the warmth, but you appreciate more of the beauty when it’s just you, the sand and the sea…

I love the beach in the winter….I think it’s one of the best times.
The shells during this time of year are amazing too…
Looks like you had a fun time!

Warmer Weather Please!

As much as I love the free people blog, I have to say that it irritates me when I see bloggers personal post about their life go up. Sorry…please post that on your own blog. I come here to see the fashion, beauty, and health posts. It is interesting to see some personal posts (houses, yoga, etc.) but I think the way this was written was off. Please relate to beachy hair at least….

This post is beautifully written and your images are serene. Thank you for sharing your moment of peace with others, sometimes we forget that we can just be and that we don’t have to always be doing or striving for anything. <3
