beachside thanks

pve design illustration of a beach club for j.mclaughlin
Ever since I was a little girl, the beach has always been such a truly special place to go to.  As I was raised in Kentucky, we had special trips with my Mom to the beach in South Carolina.  The summers were a busy time for my Father with his work at the market.  I remember spending days at the beachside fondly.  My Mother reminded me of how I climbed up to a window which looked out onto the ocean and said, "Thank you God for bringing the beach to me."  I have no recollection of saying that but whenever I am given time to be near any beach, I still give thanks.

ah, a wonderful recollection...and if you still want to visit the SC coast I would love to meet up with you! I left a piece of my heart along the coast in Charleston when I left that wonderful city....it's still there

I love that illustration...I'm happy to be be back in CT, but since it's August I must admit I'm missing the CA beaches...especially since my sister is renting a house in our old neighborhood and sends me photos of the sunset every night.

Lovely. Makes me want to walk in the sand and hear the waves. I'm thankful for beaches, too. Happy August, Patricia!

There is something special about the beach, even on a windy summers day here in England!

If every day could be a beach day, we'd have our toes in the sand gladly! Here's hoping you'll have a chance to relax by calming waters...
