|From the moment we are old enough to totter down the gentle sandy slope and dip our toes in the foam of the sea we are hooked on the beach.
You never quite forget the feeling of the warm sand as it pushes up through your toes and the off shore breeze as it whips your hair up and out of
whatever confines had been placed on it. If you close your eyes you can still hear the gentle sounds of the lapping waves and smell the fresh
healthy fragrance of the salty ozone as they perpetuate the memory of the idyll that is a beach vacation.
When I visit the beach I prefer to sit back and relax, take a deep breath and enjoy the view. I especially like to see a new family arrive. It's
wonderful to watch the reaction of little children as their faces reflect a look of complete awe. They generally stand mesmerised and, as their
parents are busy unloading towels and bags, small eyes grow wide with amazement as they behold for the first time the vastness, strength and
beauty that is an ocean.
If you feel the urge to leave the sun soaked shore of course you can indulge in a myriad of water sports and beach games. There is no need to be
a beach potato even if it is just a leisurely swim or a brisk walk along the shore before a stroll to that seafront restaurant and indulging in a light
lunch of a fresh, locally caught, fish.
From the beautiful silver sand in Jamaica to the rocky coves of Maine and the undulating sand hills of La Rochelle the beach appeals to our
senses and lulls us into a relaxation of spirit rarely found in other vacation destinations.
So if you would benefit by taking a step back in time to the simpler days of your childhood to experience a de-stressing of your soul then consider
making your way to the water, stretching out on the warmth of that sandy beach and allowing mother nature to work her own special magic.
