Ocean calm

Sept 13 trashon beachToday the instructor was the ocean. It was my familiar stretch of DelRay Beach, the Atlantic Sure Dunes area. A respectfully “clean” beach however in 30 minutes I did fill half a kitchen size garbage bag. I only found 1 plastic bottle and 1 glass bottle and filled only half the bag because most of the trash were cigarette butts! HEY SMOKERS, the beach is NOT your ashtray!

The water was the calmest I’d ever seen. Swimming with the current was so easy it was meditation and not a workout. Riding the glide was so peaceful. The swim back, as the current picked up a tad and the sky grayed, WAS exercise. It was a challenge with its own joy.
