Beach Fun


Here I am, on the second to the last day of the year 2013. Spending a quiet time on the beach. Getting some sun in December. Oh the joys of living in the tropics! Sunshine throughout most of the year.

I walk along the shore, feeling the small waves tenderly lapping at my feet. My husband walking alongside with me, hand in hand. I lovingly look up at him and he kisses me ever so tenderly. The children start teasing us, "Ewww! PDA! (Public Display of Attention)," "So mushy!" I wave to them in an effort to let them mind their own business. They seem to understand and the boys paddle away on their surfboards. The daughters are having a good time themselves, the eldest minding her husband and our sweet little granddaughter, and the other, playing cards with her soft spoken boyfriend.

A dream vacation, away from the hustle and bustle of city life, no smog, no noise, no stress.

Night came quickly and we gathered together in front of the bonfire. A few beers, hotdogs and marshmallows, and a lot of stories and laughter. It is close to midnight. We put out the fire and gathered our stuff. We get inside our rented cottage and gave each other the warmest exchanges of "Good night, I love you."

I fall asleep, happy and content.

BUZZZZ....BUZZZZ....BUZZZZZ....

My alarm goes off. What the..?!!! 

REALITY! I wake up and I was back in our house, my alarm still buzzing. Its time for me to get ready for work.

ME AND MY WILD DREAMS.

  1. LOL! I am very familiar with that dream! Happens all the time. Would love to be in the tropics right now instead of dealing with all the snow and ice here. :)

    1. Oh, the muddy mess we have here is after the floods subside. It's not cold though. The air here becomes very humid before and after a storm. I will try to relive the dream and include some of my work friends and blogger friends too. Sending sunshine and warmth to your side of the world. :)

  3. I live in Canada, there is a ton of snow here and I don't think I'd trade the beauty of it for a tropical beach; I'm totally content with melting snow in a tub and swimming in it.

    1. I had cousins who used to live in Michigan, but they moved to Florida when they married. I guess Filipinos are not meant for cold, freezing weather. Haha. :)

  10. Sounds amazing! We just got back from the beach, but it was cold and rainy the whole time we were there. It's apparently not always sunny and warm in Florida. The views of the snowy white beaches and emerald green waters made the trip worth while.

  13. Great Post... Sounds very romantic and nice!!!! We usually go to a different place each summer. I wish we had the tradition of going back to the same place every year, but my husband prefers to go to new places. We did go to Cape May, NJ two summers in a row, and we loved it. This year we went to Holden Beach, NC, and we all had a great time.

  19. I was enjoying your dream land imagery. Ugh, those are almost the worst dreams because they have to end with getting back to our real lives!

  22. I live in Trinidad so this dream is pretty much my reality! :) And would you believe, my dreams consist of playing in the snow and having a snowball fight. I have never even seen snow 'in real'...so I have to dream about it.
