WANTED: One Beautiful Day...


WANTED: one beautiful day at the shore;
a good log for sitting; an ocean to roar;
a paper for reading; a bit of a breeze;
a pair of bare feet (hold the sand, if you please);
some driftwood, some shells, and the smell of the sea.
Now cut me a deal. Did I hear you say FREE?!

That is great....I could use one of those days this week!

Annette Lyon said...

Okay that's just unnerving--the picture looks freakishly like our grade school's art teacher!

count me in! I miss the beach, and as you know (due to all the twilight phenom here)... our beaches near Forks are c-o-l-d and rainy

karen said...

Ahhhh, the smell of the ocean! Guaranteed relaxation right there. I still want my bonfire and s'mores. Anyone? Anyone??

Jackie said...

I love that picture.

Thanks for tip to take time alone! I have been doing that, what a difference it makes.

Let's meet up for lunch sometime!
Texas isn't THAT big, right?

KC Mom said...

Have them cut me a deal too! I'm in!
I took some YW to the pool today. 80 degrees, no humidity...perfect for a grown up like me. They whined and complained until I brought them home...they were too cold.
So much for a relaxing perfect day at the pool!

The smell of the ocean and the sound of the waves. Ah. That's why I love No Cal beaches. I can so do without all the sand, however.
Where is that picture from!?

Sue said...

Not sure, Jen. It was a public domain picture I found online. Pretty funny, huh?

=)

Jill said...

So are you planning a beach trip? Your poem sure makes me want to go. In 2 hours I could be to one.

Jill said...

Oh and btw, perfect beach music! I don't know how you coordinate it all, but you do.

Cherie said...

I am SO with you! I could use a relaxing day at the beach listening to the waves - sigh....

Caroline of Salsa Pie said...

True happiness, indeed. I think we're due for a beach vacation! Thanks for the reminder how great the beach can be!

Secret Mom Thoughts said...

Love the photo although I wouldn't let the bird stay on my head.

Jenny said...

Cute photo!!!

Sounds like a great time - can I come along too?

leigh said...

Let's go. Meet me at the beach in one hour.

Hard to believe that there are a lot of people in our country who have never seen the ocean. I was so happy when we moved from Idaho to California. I would hate not being able to go to the beach, now that I know how really neat it is. I love listening to the gulls and just letting go. I think it would be hard not to relax if you were that close to the water. Needless to say, we are looking forward to Newport too.

Karen Mortensen said...

I love this picture. So funny.

Heather Anderson said...

HA that photo is too funny!

Sue said...

Actually, Jill, we are having our annual Newport Beach family reunion in July, for a whole week. Can't wait!

=)

PS. I was at Santa Cruz yesterday to get my personal beach fix until the big trip...

Mumsy said...

Sounds like a deal to me. Hugs

Jess said...

Love it! But bring on the sand to go with the bare feet please. Lovely Sue, as always.
