Ocean Power

Morning Beach Walk
Jupiter Island, FL
September 12, 2022


In a near futile attempt to get back into a kind of normal rhythm, Chris and I attempted a morning walk on the beach yesterday. It was a beautiful morning. Stunningly clear blue sky and moderate temperatures and humidity. A seemingly great day for a beach walk.

Except . . . 

The tide was high and the ocean was strong. The waves were rolling up over the ridge of sand on the beach making ponds along the base of the dunes. The sand was soft and hard to traverse. We managed only about a .8 mile walk, far short of our usual 1.5-2.0 mile walk. 

The ocean was magnificent in its beauty. The rolling waves contained such power as they washed up over the sand. I ended the water as it rushed over my feet.

And we were alone on the beach as far as our eyes could see. 

Is there a better way to begin the day?

I think not.
