|A beautiful fall day!|
The 3 of us sat on a bench and ate our lunch while watching the ocean. We were in the middle of discussing how restorative the ocean is. I mean, on a very primal level the ocean just makes me feel like all will be alright with my world.
And then. Oh yes...and then. One seagull flew over us and landed in the sand in front of us. I say, "Watch out for the seagull. He'll try to steal our food." And within what seemed like seconds, there were many seagulls circling over us and pretending to dive bomb. We started walking to the gazebo a little ways away. We turn around and the seagulls were following us. By this time we were laughing so hard that we could barely talk, let alone walk upright. If I had been able to I would have tried to record them.
We made it to the cover of the gazebo and finished eating our lunch. As we were all looking out toward the ocean we realized that laughing hard like we did was just as restorative as looking out at the ocean. And though I would love to be near the ocean every day, on most days, a good, hard laugh with friends is there for the taking.
