On a relatively empty beach
As luck would have it, the weather on day two of the short trip wasn’t exactly balmy. In fact, it was a little chilly and overcast with bursts of light rain.
This did not hamper the spectacle of the ocean though. With a quick trip to the grocery store to pick up a pail and castle forms, we raided the empty beach and chased the breaking waves.
It’s hard not to mention, staring out at the to the horizon, the slight fear of tsunami. My friends and I talked a bit about what we’d do given some warning sign. After seeing the photos recovered from the British Columbia tourists, I mentioned that the water would recede quickly and expose the tidal flats.
We decided we would run inland.
Living in fear isn’t much of an occupation though, and after some moments of reflection, our thoughts returned to building castles and roads.
