People at Pigeon Point Beach — and all over the world — love to watch the sea.
Tobago, March 2010

The land may vary more;
But wherever the truth may be—
The water comes ashore,
And the people look at the sea.  Robert Frost

I haven’t been to the seashore in awhile, and I’m missing it.  Carla, Matt and I enjoyed a late breakfast at the Belvedere recently, but we didn’t have enough time to get out on the beach. I actually enjoy the beach more when it isn’t so hot outside, but something about summer seems to call for gazing out at the ocean.  Since I’m not planning to go there in person, I can visit in my mind, and as a bonus, I’ll be avoiding the crowds and sunburn and sand in my shoes.

Want a quick break?  Join me for some virtual beach therapy.  We can watch the waves in Melbourne, Florida:

Or meditate to the mesmerizing surf on the rocky California coast:

Or catch the sunset at the beach pictured above, Pigeon Point in Tobago:

OK, I guess it’s time to get back to work…Sheila, I’ll join you for our imaginary meeting at Club Verandah (aka Chez Vann) this evening to enjoy your ocean views! Have the iced tea ready, and I’ll bring some freezing-cold watermelon.  Sorry, Raynard’s chocolate/coffee/caramel cake is all gone now!
