… I have sat on two this last week.
A wander to Safety Beach for the day, feeling the sand between my toes, sitting in the shade reading my book, watching the kids explore, then walking in rock pools and wading in the shallows.
Then a trip to Rye, staying with friends and waking up to the sound of their kids playing and laughing. Then more sitting in the shade, reading my book, chatting about life and changes, watching the kids play in the sand and dive in the water. Then almost before the end of our afternoon stepping into the water, feeling it lapping at my legs, a strange but remembered sensation.
