Monday morning cafe miel, this time at Rowster. Delicious.

Rowster - another hip, minimalist coffee shop. It's what we do.

Life’s a Beach

I linger at the beach.

There is something so right and soul-healing about a long walk in the salt air.  The waves washing over my feet, the sand squishing between my toes, the squawking of gulls, the gentle rhythm of the surf.

I need it.

And I am always slow to leave it.
