I actually made it to the beach 3 days during my 3 week visit in Florida! While it's the total opposite coast from when we lived in Oceanside, CA, it feels like being 'home' to sit at the beach and listen to the waves, feel the sand between my toes, the wind and the warmth of the sun. How I've missed the ocean!
And now I miss it again! Hoping to be able to make a trip back down there in August.
