#872 The feeling of scrunching sand in your feet

A million little massages

Free your feet.

When you kick off your tight, suffocating shoes, peel off your nasty, sweaty socks, and just starting walking on the beach in bare feet, how good does that feel?

Man, it’s a million molecules of Earthbeads massaging your foot all at once. It’s a tickly, gripply sand sensation. It’s big piles of small cubes hugging and comforting your tired and sore and broken sole.

And yeah sure, the sand wedges itself up into your toenails, dusts up in your toe-knuckle hair, and coats the bottom of your feet like butter on toast. So your feet may look a little worse for wear.

But whatever, because the feeling of scrunching sand in your feet when you walk on the beach is 100% guaranteed

AWESOME!

  1. Hell yes, that is indeed awesome.

    The Earth is worth not blowing up because of that. :)

    Not to be too picky but, for me, the sand has to be sun warmed and dry. Not too hot, not too cold, just right. It’s snowing like crazy so I’m closing my eyes and feeling the warm sand between my toes.

  4. don't hat me but,

    I actually hate this feeling SO much it’s the reason why I don’t like the beach all that much, but I understand everyone is not the same :)

  5. Don't Hat Me Either (hate is fine)

    I cannot stand this feeling. Sand is one of the three things that make the beach bad. The other two are your scorching star and salt water.

  6. I love this feeling. I miss it. It’s quite relaxing. Like squeazing one of those stress relief balls.

  7. I’m not sure, but I think “toe knuckle” might be my favorite phrase ever.

  8. It is a great feeling. It is best when the sand is warm.

    It’s even better when it’s the first time you can actually remove your shoes without freezing. Your feet have been enduring socks and shoes and boots all autumn-winter long. Then you happen to walk by a park with a playground and your slow your pace. You know it’s the right moment, because the temperature is warm enough, the snow has been gone long enough for the parks to get cleaned-up, the sand is all dry. So you just remove your shoes and socks and let your feet be tickled by the sand. It’s a small preview of the summer that’s just around the corner.

      memories of Boundary Bay and Point Robert’s- collecting buckets of sand dollars and taking them to the candy store certain they were good for cash and a bag full of candy-sweet innocense.

    I loved this one, until I went to Brasil with some friends….and we all caught some larvae they have over there, which gets under your skin and reproduces….and by the way, it moves, and you can see the trails of its movement. gross. Had it for about 2 months…couldnt sleep, couldnt do anything because I was scratching 24/7. had to take a pill usually given to pigs for their parasites because aparently, they cure is only availabe IN BRASIL.
