#561 Letting the waves bury your feet at the beach

Smile and stare out into the glimmery ocean distance as your feet sink and squish into the wet sand at the edge of the waves. Squeeze pockets of drippy beach in your hands and rub your dirty palms together for a mini-massage as the burnt orange sun slowly dips down in the distance. Breathe that warm and salty ocean breeze and dig your feet in deep as you close your eyes for a moment, let your mind drift away, and just let it all go.

Just let it all go.

Just let it all go.

  1. EEeeeeeeeee!! I could do this for hours. I always wanted to eventually get waist deep, but alas, my body would never succumb past my ankles. But that was


    enough for me :D

  2. I just got back from my reading week grad trip in the dominican. I definitely spent sometime letting the waves bury my feet in the sand and it was awesome.

  3. i was just in hawaii and did this exactly! and i even thought it belonged somewhere on this list. that’s an AWESOME coincidence.

  4. What an awesome post to start my day as I head into the snow! I’ll keep this as my mental image today :)

  5. I’m sure I’m not the only one who had a therapist at some point who had them visualize a happy place in times of stress or sadness – this was always mine.

  6. This is one of my favorite things to do when I go to the beach! I usually do it when the water’s too cold to go into, but my boyfriend does anyway. So I stand on the water’s edge, sinking into the sand, watching him.

    1. I was looking for that. That is THE BEST feeling. When you’re left standing on a single blob under the ball of your foot!

  7. I’m seventeen, and had never seen the ocean until last week when I went to Florida. I had always wanted to, and was unbelivibly happy I was finally getting the opportunity. I was so excited about it that I sprinted in, even though it was absolutely freezing that day, (although, I did only get up to my knees, it was so cold!) But, at one point, I just stood and stared out, letting the waves wash up over my feet, completely awestruck. It was honestly one of the most wonderful feelings in the world. :]

    1. It always feels freezing when you first go in – usually if you grin and bare it after a while you get used to it. :)

  8. My cousin and I are convinced that you either know us or are stalking us… We just got back from a vacation in Hawaii where we not only buried our ankles in the sand on the shore but also drank Kona coffee daily where I watched the cream meld with the coffee AND didn’t hit my head on the mini-van rental!

    Come out, come out where-ever you are!!

  9. I grew up but every summer for two weeks we’d go to the shore. For two weeks I’d get to enjoy the feeling of the cool water bury my feet in the wet sand. Have to agree.

    Pulling up the legs of your pants or shorts to keep them dry, then suddenly getting hit with a larger wave that smacks you on the thighs and butt, drenching you, and realizing that you loved it so much you can’t stop giggling…

  11. OH MY GOD! As I was reading that I felt like I was right back in a small beach in Boston I used to go to as a kid! Amazing descriptive words! ^_^
