I’ve never spent much time on the Atlantic, but I do remember many times of playing on a Pacific beach.  There’s a high degree of freedom that comes with playing on the beach right next to the ocean.  Maybe it’s all those negative ions coming from the ocean breeze sweeping across the water.  Maybe it’s the salt mixing with water and sand.  Maybe it’s that the parents are willing to just let kids play as the adults sit on the sand or a lounge chair and read.  To each their own.  I’ll take that feeling of freedom, however it happens to come.

I guess when you’re ready to sun bathe it doesn’t matter if the sun is really out.  At least these people don’t.  Maybe they’re guests of a resort with all the colored umbrellas and just want to spend time on a beach.  Maybe they’ve just come all the way here to Hilton Head, South Carolina, rented an umbrella and are going to be here no matter what.  For whatever reason, is it ever not a day to be sitting on a beach on the Atlantic Ocean whenever you can?

It’s so beautiful here out on the Islands.  I was out wandering around at dusk, not too far from my sisters house.  I’d been out on the Island all day, exploring, visiting old haunts, taking photos.  I used to live here myself.  I met my wife here.  Our daughter was born here.  I worked here.  I bathed in the beauty here.  I hiked and explored and made friends here.  It’s been a long time now, but I love to come back and surround myself in Island time and beauty.  I’ll be back this summer for a nephews wedding.

Ah… to be in the Greek Isles.  Warm  breezes and romance.  At least that’s what I conjure up inside when Greece comes to mind.  White stucco buildings and strong Greek coffee, hiking along narrow roads, ferrying among remote islands, friendly people happy to see us.  I feel more romantic just thinking about and remembering.

After spending much of the day exploring Hilton Head Island, we settled in for a nice meal at one of the local restaurants.  I don’t remember what I had, but I’m pretty sure I ordered some kind of seafood.  Just so happens I spotted these fishing boats tied up at one the docks.  So, I wandered outside and positioned myself at an angle directly into the sun.  With the sun rapidly setting, the color of the sky was increasing.  It was just another beautiful day in the south.
