That's how I feel sometimes, so far from the ocean. Not that I was swimming every day when I was growing up, but I guess I took for granted how easy it was to hang out at the beach.
Fast forward almost 16 years later and I find myself yearning for water.
For me, it's not really vacation unless there is swimming.
And when you get ducks hanging around, well, that's just a bonus.
Also, BBQ. Eating BBQ every night was a treat.
The stairs down to the lake, trod many times daily by this explorer.
Maybe we did come back a little more relaxed after all.
