What do you prefer?
Right now, I vote for the beach.
I moved away from the beach to a forest campsite for a week,
and I am wishing that I was looking out over the water from my RV.
Although the warm weather
along the Gulf is great,
that's not the main reason.
The water and waves are soothing,
and I like walking along the shore.
I think it has something to do with
looking out over the water and
seeing open space and no end in site.
In the forest it is cozy,
but feels closed in.
I have always liked to be near the water.
Once looked into buying a lighthouse.
Thought I would end up retiring along
the shore of one of the Great Lakes.
Once we had a pontoon boat...
kept it at the Marina on the Illinois River.
Wanted to buy a small houseboat
but ended up with the pontoon.
Lakes, rivers, oceans doesn't matter.
I can't wait to get back to the beach.
