I really dislike sand, I love picnicking and there is nothing worse than when you are eating your favorite sandwich, fresh ham and butter on a crunchy French baguette, and you bite down on gritty sand, kills the moment of pleasure. However, I love the ocean, swimming in salt water, smelling the sand, the sea and the sun, there are few smells as divine as those three. We have an in ground pool and eating lunch and dinner out there is pleasant as well and when my flowers are in full bloom, the air is sweet and floral, perfect ambience for eating and relaxing. Swimming in chlorine isn’t my favorite but there is no sand! so I shouldn’t complain. I should be happy.
- Where’s the most beautiful beach you’ve ever seen?
- A Beautiful Beach
My personal favorite beach of all the beaches that I have visited throughout the years is the Truc Vert on the tiny peninsula called Presqu’ile of Cap Ferret in the Southwest of France right outside of Bordeaux. The Truc Vert is a beach right on the Atlantic Ocean, when you go there by car, you park in the midst of a pine forest. You walk through the forest, smelling pine, sand, sun and the ocean and the forest thins out bringing you to a long stretch of planks leading you to the Atlantic Ocean, where the crashing waves are waiting to be frolicked in and the sea breeze keeps the sun’s heat at bay.
Do you have a favorite park?
May 15, 2012
My favorite park growing up is right near a lovely beach called Sunken Meadows out on Long Island. The park, of course, named Sunken Meadows Park stands out in my memory because all the slides, swings and teeter tots were right on the sand so if you fell it didn’t hurt, so my sister and I felt free to do some crazy acrobatics that were really something else.
