    On the Road Again: Vacation 

    Hey to all my followers. Thank you for sticking with me, reading and subscribing to my blog. You are some of the best people on earth. I am leaving for vacation for the rest of June; WE have a heavy schedule and so much to do, I most likely will be away for awhile. I am looking forward to starting up again next month.

    I Bring The “Beach” Inside 

    I thought I would join in this week with something I haven’t participated in for awhile, The Word Press Daily Prompt.  Besides, I love the theme of “Beach” ………

    Daily Prompt On Word Press

    It has been years since I went to any ocean beach. I had relatives when I was young that lived in the coolest town named Mukilteo.

    The place is close by Everette, Washington State. These were my Pacific Ocean Days.

    I lived In Florida- Pensacola for several years. Those were My “Atlantic Ocean” Days. Which ocean do you prefer? I actually like the wild Pacific, but then when you are a kid it just seems a tad more magical, so I may be biased because of age.

    Now I am so far away from those beaches in Missouri.

    There are some nice shorelines around other water bodies here, but I miss the ocean trips.

    So I came up with an idea to correct in my own home, the ocean:

      I love this. Absolutely love this. I’m an ocean person too. Have lived near to the Atlantic all my life (NYC and Miami). I’m in the process of moving to Jacksonville. I visited the Pacific a few years ago when celebrating my then 90 year old aunt’s birthday. It is wild and magical. But, I have an attachment to the Atlantic Ocean.

      I miss the beach, Nike. I never knew you lived in New York. My son was living in Stuart up the Atlantic coast for a couple years. Thanks for your comment.

        Stuart is where the airport is, right? I know the general area. My brother lives in Duchess County. In fact, I’m going to visit him and his wife today.

          My son is here visiting, but I will ask him. He flies a lot so it is probably there. He says it is ritzy and does not care for it, so he is moving. He works and drives cruise ships in the summer in Alaska. After that, he may move back where we are or where is older brother and family are still in Washington.

          My son says they have an airport that the blue angels fly out of. He hasn’t ever flown out of there. Have a great weekend Nike.

          I don’t know anything about the Blue Angels flying there, but it’s a modern airport.

      Lovely post. I was born in a city that lies just next to the sea which meant a lot of beautiful beaches. Where I live right now, there is not even one. I miss going to the beach. Your idea just helped me.. now I can bring the beach at home to me ^_^
      P.S. im an owl fan too.. ❤

      Beautiful art to bring the beach into your home, reminded me of a full wall mural a friend did for me setting sand, shells and some seaweed into it. Altho I no longer live there many others have had the joy of that refreshing mural!

      Loved this! Something “spiritual” about the beach and ocean right? I am a “UGE” Lighthouse collector… Cat

    Drowning in Water,But finding Myself safe on the Beach. 

    Take a line from a song that you love or connect with. Now forget the song, and turn that line into the title or inspiration for your post.

    So the words of this song called “Drown” impressed me as I turned on my music player.  I had gone to the inspire me link under ‘new post”  on here to get me moving on what to post today.

    Walking the beach 4 A.M. Listening to the waves as they crash upon the sand. It’s just a black sea, the moonlight, and me It’s sink or swim Drowning within you Somebody rescue me Cause I”m going against the stream……

    This reminded me of the darkness and horror of my depression life, I have dealt with since I was a teenager. I still struggle with it, but though I do go against the stream many days, I have found myself at the top of the ladder and looking over the great breaking of the water behind me from the dam’s tip.

    Sometimes it is hard to admit. Sometimes it is hard to even blog or go on any social sites and show my face. Got out in public. But then there is the view…… Of HOPE

    Hard to talk about, and so painful to discuss the black soul of hopelessness, like drowning, not being able to breath until the light breaks through.

    I had wanted to post on my mental anguishes,  once and awhile and this song’s words  just fit to lead into that.

    Giving up.

    Hope

    Breath and colors flood my life.
