Who can remember sitting on a deserted beach, under the moonlight with a gorgeous person that you may have just met, your heart skipping a beat or 3. The idle chit chat and giggles were arousing, but nothing compared to the intoxicating euphoria of that first feathery kiss. Your body tingled as your heart said, “Go for it!” But your head kept interrupting and saying, “Woo back, slow down a bit.” The waves crashing was the only sound you heard as you wished for the night to never end? For some, it may have been 20 or 30 years ago, but for others as recent as last week. No matter how long ago, it was a wonderful experience that you will never forget.
One of my long held dreams, when I was younger, was to see a sunset over the ocean. I did get to see many and I never ceased to marvel at the sheer beauty of it. Beaches have a charisma of their own on this planet, but to watch that golden ball sink low as it casts its rays on to the ocean like liquid gold, then turn the water to stunning hues of pink, blue and silver is really a sight to behold. True, sunrises over the beach are stunning as well, but what a way to end the day! I lobe checking out new restaurants on the coast next to Vancouver. The site is simply spectacular and even as I drive away along the edge.
Of course, I was never satisfied to just see a beach sunset. Oh no. My fantasy stretched to actually be married on a western beach at sunset!
Our road trip to the north of Vancouver was a hasty one, (but also boring at times, especially crossing the Plain) as my sister had a job to start. It was unfortunate that we didn’t get more time to spend in the numerous interesting country towns we passed through, that, I am sure, would have lots of amazing characters in them that we could have met. A trip like that contains infinite opportunities for a writer to create scenes/experiences that may be tame to some, but so wild to others that they could never imagine them. They can be funny, sad, scary and very painful!
Isn’t it exciting when you see an old friend that you just sort of “Lost track of” over a few years, only to find the missing years are peeled away like it was only last week? You have a lot to catch up on and that unique close bond is still there, never to be broken. They are someone you can confide in and trust with your life. You may not have a lot in common with each other but you know they will always be there when you need them. We headed out to this amazing Mexican place in the Bay area are the food was delightful. The perfect setting to make even more positive memories with people I care about.
