10.20.2021 – beach breeze breezily

I grew up in West Michigan.

The beaches of Lake Michigan were not far away and I was there often.

For as much time that I spent there, I cannot say that the pleasures of a warm breeze off the water happened often.

Warm water at the beaches of Lake Michigan at the height of summer meant water around 70 degrees.

Any further out, the water stayed around 60.

With a breeze off the water, you tried to lay as flat as you could on your beach towel to get out of the wind.

Now living in South Carolina coast, the warm breeze off the Atlantic Ocean is a wonder.

And this was in October.

Part of a series based on an afternoon spent at the beach on Hilton Head Island.

I wanted to see if I would be ‘inspired’ by what I saw, by what I heard, by what I smelled, by what I tasted, what I felt emotionally and what I felt tactilely.

Some turned out okay.

Some were too forced.

Some were just bad.

Some did involve some or all of those feelings.

As far as it goes, I guess I was inspired by by what I saw, by what I heard, by what I smelled, by what I tasted, what I felt emotionally and what I felt tactilely.
