You know, there are a lot of reasons to go to the beach and as Lifeguard, I’ve become acquainted with a lot of them, be it for the best or worst.
To me, I think it is the global experience of everything that the beach has to offer which invites countless of families to travel to the shoreline and enjoy a good holiday, weekend or even vacations, at various, or just a single beach.
The joys I’ve learned while being a Lifeguard, but also from observing the people that surround me at the beach, have made me wonder and conclude, that the beach is, in itself, a place for therapy. The sound of the waves crashing, the laughter and screams of children playing and running around, people talking gossip, the sand being crushed down as you take another step across the shoreline and the breeze or wind blowing against your face.
Sure everything has different rhythms at each given moment, but still, most of it is calm and it’s like the time of the day flows in a slow motion, rather than a quick one. You are able to truly feel the pace of who and what surrounds you, thus becoming connected, or at least a certain level of it, to nature itself.
How do you feel when you walk on the sand?
