Sometimes it’s deeply necessary to unplug our laptops and ipads, turn off the television and smartphone and leave our cares behind in search of silence, solitude and the astounding beauty of our natural world. Sometimes we need sand in our toes, salt in our hair and the sound of ocean waves to soothe our frenzied souls.
Because there’s nothing more beautiful than the way the ocean refuses to stop kissing the shoreline, no matter how many times it’s sent away. – Sarah Kay
When anxious, uneasy and bad thoughts come, I go to the sea, and the sea drowns them out with its great wide sounds, cleanses me with its noise, and imposes a rhythm upon everything in me that is bewildered and confused. –Rainer Maria Rilke
It’s hard for me to put into words why I like the beach so much. Everything about it is renewing for me, almost like therapy… Beach Therapy. –Amy Dykens
Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air – Ralph Waldo Emerson
