From Sea to Ocean

What experiences I have had during the past couple of weeks. From enjoying the Caribbean West Indies to returning to life at work and now spending time on that small strip of Maryland on the Atlantic Ocean shore known as Ocean City.

The view from the condo is fantastic, looking right out onto the ocean. I am sitting here listening to the waves crash just over the dunes and to the sounds of sea birds calling to each other.

It has been a very long time since I have been in Ocean City. Maybe more than 10 years. And I am such a beach guy, too.

I had forgotten how pretty the low sand dunes are as they strive to protect the land from the sea and provide a foothold for shore life.

The long open beach goes on seemingly forever until it slips beneath the waves of the unstoppable force that is the mighty Atlantic Ocean.

The air is clear, although it is already hot as the day is going to be a scorcher.

And I have escaped, once again. If only for a weekend.

What could be better?
