Sandy Toes and Salty Kisses

In response to the Earth Day Challenge by K.E. Wilkinson.

I am obsessed with beaches. I just love them. I did a whole series on the various beaches I have visited and how each of them are special to me. I called them ‘Sandy Toes and Salty Kisses‘. I don’t know swimming, but that doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy the ocean. Recently someone asked me the question as part of a psychological quiz (and yeah, we know how much I just LOVE them 😉 )  ‘What is your view about the ocean?’. I replied ‘I admire them and find them very peaceful but at the same time a little intimidating too’. It seems how we see the ocean reflects on how you view death. So yeah, I feel the same way about death too.

Here is my photograph of Drake’s beach in USA, where I am planning to visit this time too. I just love this place. I love beaches especially when they are empty. I feel as if the whole place belongs to me. Add a slight drizzle and I am in heaven. I would love to just sit there and stare at the ocean for hours listening to water crashing at the shore. I hope that this time too there will be very very less crowd (or no people at all 😉 ) when I get to visit (fingers crossed)

What is there not to like in this beach. We were on our way from San Francisco to Point Reyes and even though there were some popular beaches on the way, it was way too crowded and we didn’t want to waste our time there. I am always in favor of a beach which is away from the crowd. And the more interior we went, the more foggy it started getting. We did not plan to stop by the Drake’s beach. We were already running late for the light house and we thought we missed our way somewhere. But then when we saw a sign we decided to make a quick stop to grab a bite. We were in for a surprise. I just fell in love with that beach. It was a weekend and still it was pretty empty. And see those fogs ? It was too cool. Very windy at that time and almost froze us but it was just wow. One of my very very favorite beaches in California (not that I have been to many) There was only one restaurant with limited options at that time (it was in 2010 or 2011 I think) and we overstayed our time there. Who can resist this. I would definitely love to go back again and spend a whole day there watching the Drake’s Bay Cliffs.
