simple pleasure of the week: beachcombing

We love to take advantage of the fact that we live near the ocean, on a peninsula with some of the most beautiful coastline we've ever seen. There's something special about being near the sea. I've heard people talk about the healing properties of water, and when I'm at the beach, I become a believer because I always feel better near the ocean. This picture was taken during a huge swell, the ocean was so powerful, and also equally beautiful with all the white water.  There's something special about walking barefoot, with the sound of the ocean in the background, looking for shells or sea glass. This is also something that is totally free, simple, and pure, and the reason why we chose it as our simple pleasure of the week!
