Finding Gold on the Waters Edge

Finding Gold on the Waters Edge

The dark months. They rabbit punch me right in the feels. Do you ever get bummed because there is so little daylight?

On the upside of these dark times, this is when the sunsets here on the north shore seem extra vibrant. The sky will be lit up with the most amazing pinks and oranges. And the gold… the gold on the water takes on a magical quality. A worthy consolation for darkness coming before most people make it home from the office each day.

Find the beauty in each day. In 40 sleeps, we’ll get over the hump and the days will start becoming longer again. Just gotta hang on…

A Winter Sunday Walk on the Beach

A Winter Sunday Walk on the Beach

I think I spend more time at the beach during the winter than I do during the summer. It was mornings like today, that remind me why it’s so great to live near the water. Just being able to head over to the shore and walk is so nice.

Long Island’s North Shore beaches have small, low waves that roll in off of the Sound. They are covered in water-smoothed rocks mixed in with the sand. This makes them very easy to walk along.

I never really thought about it until today, but one of the best things about riding to the beach is that you don’t get sand in your shoes when you’re wearing motorcycle boots!

As I walked along, I seemed to take special notice of the trees that managed to grow on the edges of the sandy shore. Against the odds, they took root and grew.

Their scrappy will struck a chord with me today. I guess it was a message my mind was looking to see. Don’t quit, even when things seem improbable – you can make it happen.
