What are your earliest memories? Mine are of sand and water. Growing up as I did near the ocean, my first memory is of the beach. It was a shaky start to what became a life-long love affair with all things coastal ... except hurricanes.
Even today, my favorite vacation is hands down a coastal destination. Most often our family makes the trek from central Kentucky to the coast just south of Charleston, South Carolina, to hit our favorite beach: Kiawah Island.
Last week Campbell and I revisited some of her Kiawah memories as we looked at the photo books that I created for her for just that purpose -- remembering our family beach vacations. We've even planned our activities for our next Kiawah get away, which, sadly won't happen before next year.
All this reminiscing took my mind back in time to my growing up years and all the hours I spent at the beach with my cousins. If you pop on over to Focusing on Life, you can read my post for today and find out "the rest of the story".
Don't grow up too quickly, lest you forget how much you love the beach.
