An Escape to the Sea

Last week my family and I went in search of the kind of therapy that only saltwater can provide.

We found it in the ocean breeze…  ocean gull

a gentle surf…

ocean perfect

on the sandy shore…


in these decadent oysters…


and these divine conch cakes…

Conch cake

and these scrumptious shrimp…


Life is good.

“My soul is full of longing
for the secret of the sea,
and the heart of the great ocean
sends a thrilling pulse through me.” 

– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow –

      Thanks, Ali! I’m glad to have these pictures to remember the trip by, though recalling how great that food was is slightly tormenting for this landlocked gal. 😉

  2. You beautifully captured the ambience of your trip.
