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.
