The First Day Back
August 21, 2014
Having discovered the beach the summer before, I was dismayed on returning in 2014 that a gate had been installed and resigned myself to no longer having access to drive in and check the surf or wander the beach.
But by the end of August the lure had become too strong, so I parked on the road and George and I began the long walk in…
The day was as spectacular as they come, the water was crystal clear and warm and inviting, the beach pristine. Naturally I took dozens of pictures. When I got home I downloaded all of them and made a slideshow video from them, all of them, unedited, in order shot, my first of many more to come.
The soaring feelings buoying my heart and soul in ecstatic joy at re-entering my Shangri-La can only be approximated by listening to Carlos Santana’s beautiful guitar composition, Samba Pa Ti as you come along with us and experience that first return visit.
