A tsunami of happiness was how I would describe a day last week.
After three days of rain, we both had cabin fever. I suggested we go to the beach.
The wind was blowing, the sun was shining, the water was a teal blue with white caps.
A musician was playing a jazz soprano sax on the beach, providing a musical background as we strolled along.
A few other people were there, a little boy with a skate board.
A woman walking along the sand alone.
Couples letting their dogs run.
Unlike the summer when the beach is sea-to-promenade blankets and baking bodies, there was a sense of peace, a chance to enjoy the beauty of the mountains and the sound of the sea.
Rick captured the moments in video.
