Yes it was hot. But it was all distraction technique.
I took baby girl straight after school. Changed her into her swimwear in the sandy gravel car park.
I carry two bags. One with clothes, towels, sunscreen… the other phone, wallet, keys, snacks.
When she needs to go toilet, I take the key bag, and leave the rest on the sand.
I have it down pat.
Still, my mind wasn’t able to rest completely.
The beach tried, I give it that much. It was really blinding hot, then a strong and balmy wind would blow over the water towards the shore.
I am totally, still getting there.
Yeah, have you noticed? We are past restrictions, I have seen my family, we are heading out, we aren’t locked in…
And yet, I am still ‘getting there.‘
No. It was never about covid. Not really. Kind of.
It’s taken on a whole new meaning now.
And I will speak, in due time.
But for now… the beach tried. Really, it did. I still loved it.
She was beautiful. 😍🏖
