Salt water

Salt water cures all wounds.

The smell of salty air always calms me down. Taking my shoes off and walking on the beach will increase that feeling even more. Add pelicans to the equation and it is at its best. That whole picture equals relaxation to me. Pelicans equal beach to me anyways. My first visit to America was to Florida. No shortage of pelicans there. And I think I still connect pelicans to that first visit and the way it felt.

That first visit changed a lot. It was like coming home in a different country.  Florida is just a small part of big country, but it started a journey. And it’s good to remember that start. Small steps on foreign ground resulted into a move across the ocean years later. Things can change around you, people can change around you. But not the beach. Salty air & and the sight of pelicans will always make me feel good. And am very fortunate that I can take a drive and go see both. 😉

  1. I’m so glad that you have made North Carolina your home, instead of florida. Though I agree with you about florida, the ocean and the birds. Yes…. salt water is very soothing in many ways. Helps medically as well as mentally. The ocean has helped me with my grief.
    Great photos and point of view of the Pelican.
    Even though our paths never meet, I often think of you!

    • Every wave washing ashore can take some of that pain away Donna. I hope you’re doing well these days. I miss our talks. You always made me smile. Such great stories you told me I remember them all. Take care Donna and maybe we’ll run into each other again.

  2. I love to watch the Pelicans fishing here in Puerto Vallarta. The ocean is very good for healing the heart. Just breathing in the air does wonders.
