ON THE BEACH
Sometimes the sand sticks to your feet and gets between your toes, is gritty and irritating the hell out of you, so that it rubs blisters into your skin and on your soul!
Other times it is soft and sensuous and dusts off gently like powder on a baby’s bottom.
On occasion there are large boulders or rocks to climb so that you cannot reach the next point or headland without a struggle.
Then again the shore can be covered in sprinklings of pretty shells, starfish and small scuttling birds or crabs that lift your spirits and warm your heart leading you onwards with smiles and laughter.
