ocean beach

my darling sister visited me this past week. she's had better winters, and was ready for an escape from the drama and from the cold. California put on quite a show, with 70 degree days and a swell of waves that lured surfers from all over the world.

i was thinking of when baby sea turtles hatch on the beach, and they have to make that dangerous trek to the refuge of the ocean. christine and i are perpetually determined to get to the waves, as if our our lives depended on it, too. 

so, though the Pacific was so cold our eyeballs ached, there's just something irresistable about finally making it to the sea... something Home about sticking our small feet in the massive ocean that helps us to push life's Reset button. 

she's the best little sea turtle, and i want to spend my whole life headed to the beach, side-by-side with my sisters.
