Why is the Beach so Appealing?
We are all drawn to the #beach; even those living in countries where there isn't one take advantage of their holidays to travel to countries known for their excellent beaches and #sunny #weather. Why is that? Why is the beach so appealing to people with different nationalities and #cultural backgrounds?
Living in a country like #Portugal, blessed by long and sunny #Mediterranean beaches and colder ones by the #Atlantic Ocean, I'm spoilt for choice. I confess I couldn't live years without going to the beach, not necessarily for #tanning purposes but to calmly observe the vastness of the #ocean or sea in front of me (suddenly our daily problems seem smaller); to close my eyes and feel the sun and the #ocean breeze almost #transporting me to a #zen state of mind...
There is something poetic about having our own footsteps constantly erased by the waves nearby... Nature puts us in our rightful place; humbles us but also helps us focus on what matters the most.
