A Perfect Summer at the Beach
How lovely it is to begin the day being woken up by the rays of the sun peering through your window! This is how my day began one perfect summer. Even the birds seemed to have come together outside my bedroom window to offer me a melody. How divine!
As my fiancé and our girls lay sound asleep, I began to prepare our breakfast. The menu was bacon, eggs, pancakes, and fresh squeeze orange juice for the girls. As the bacon sizzled in the pan, the aroma of black coffee wafted heavily through the kitchen waking me up completely. The smell of coffee is intoxicating and the first sip gives me a sense of tranquility…ahhh refreshing!
After breakfast, we changed and prepared to go to the beach. We had planned to go to Narragansett Beach with my fiancé’s family. My girls were so excited that they started preparing the night before so there were not too many things to prepare in the morning other than load them into the car.

After I had my few moments of pure joy in the sand, I saw my brother playing in the ocean without me. I took off my shirt and sandals and ran over and joined in the fun. We splashed each other with the salty water and played for a few more minutes before it was time to leave.…

    The fisherman boats would be a small speak in a distant on their way out to catch fish. But once I got out there in the water I would gradually start to love the ocean.
