Back to the beach.

Having grown up in a seaside town the beach was always just there.  You could smell the ocean in the breeze.  Life just seemed to naturally revolve around it.  When I was little I spent day after day with my siblings, our mom and friends in the sun, running up and down the beach, . . . → Read More: Back to the beach.
