#1740 Day 242 of getting there: When you need the beach

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. 😍🏖
