ON A CLEAR DAY
The sea pronounces something, over and over, in a hoarse whisper; I cannot quite make it out. ~Annie Dillard
On a day when the sun is shining and the air is dry and clear, there is no place more beautiful to be than at the beach. On this day the waters of the Gulf are crisp, and clean, and clear and the most gorgeous, gemlike turquoise color. Sometimes the elements of nature align in such a way as to almost reach a level of perfection. This is such a day. How lucky we are to be able to see such beauty and experience the peace and serenity that only the sea can provide.
