A Perfect Day

The drive to the beach was filled with anticipation of the day to come.

Blue sky, fluffy white clouds, warmth from the sun and the smell of the salt from the sea brought memories from days gone by when I was a child.

As I sit in my chair, toes in the sand, I can’t help but smile as I watch the children splashing and playing in the water.

Buckets of sand, shovels digging, pebbles and shells are added and a castle emerges.

Hunger pains from playing for hours are satiated from the burgers fresh off the grill, the sweet corn on the cob and the perfect end to a perfect meal, melted and browned marshmallows on chocolatey graham crackers.

We put our sweatshirts on, sit back in our chairs and watch the sun set on a perfect day.
