I once heard from an old sage,”The cure for anything is salt water – tears, sweat, or the sea“. He was right. And so it is my daily routine to spend an hour or so walking the beach. Well, the ‘or so’ can be spent doing a few rounds of Tai Chi or just sitting and watching the tide rise or fall.
I’m not alone by any means, many runners do their early workout on the hard sand just above the tide line, not close enough to dodge the waves or disturb the birds. Those crazy birds, they race up and down trying to find the sand-shrimp, but not get their feet wet. Then there is the occasional couple that spend their morning on their horses, at a full gallop. I only see them going one way, those rides must be long, I don’t know if they are heading out, or on the way back.
