As I’m writing about vacation day number 5, I realize I have been wasting a perfect opportunity to live out a fantasy. Ever since I was a little kids I have dreamt of sitting out on a balcony, over the ocean, writing my next story. Of course then I had no idea I would be writing children’s stories. But I realize I haven’t worked on a single Egret story since arriving at the beach. Mostly I have just been enjoying the vacation, my family and the sounds and smells of the ocean. Admittedly I have spent a bit to much mental energy morning a lost friendship. But fortunately I have not let that ruin my vacation. But back to the Egret thing, I have had this fantasy and I have yet to take advantage of my surroundings to fulfill it. So hopefully over the next couple of days I will put out a new one. Ah screw hopefully, I will write a new story on this balcony before we leave on Sunday.
So on the the beach day. My Dad’s girlfriend has a place across the street from us. They came up last night. Treated us to breakfast and a delicious dinner, plus spent the day with us on the beach. It was definitely triggering a lot of flash backs from childhood. We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day. It ended, at least for the kids, with a music/bonfire on the beach roasting marshmallows and smores. After the kids where in bed I took a long walk on the beach fantasizing about someday owning our own place here. Sadly its not likely in the near future cards. For now I will hold on to someday.
