I Ache for the Ocean

I really do miss the beach. Gone are the days when I felt the urge to see the ocean and all I had to do was drive 5 minutes down South Road or head downtown to Geelong and there it was. I use to do this often. I felt like it this morning when I woke up and had that feeling where I needed to be close to the sea air and smell the seaweed that had been washed up on the sand. I don't think I took it for granted. I was there nearly everyday. Liam loved it too. I will return someday, the best part is I'll have 3 amazing people to share it with.

Back then this was also my favorite quote, I don't know who its by, I found it in a magazine.

It is a beautiful world. And yet, there is only one thing of value: Being close to the ones I love. They are the shells that protect me, the air on which I fly and the straw on which I fall.

Half Moon Bay was my fav beach about a 5 min drive from my place

Half Moon Bay - Best sun baking spot I think, really clean and gorgeous views
