The Sea is Our Witness

We would come to this place on weekends. This is where we spent many quality times as a family. The sea was our witness.

It knew how we enjoyed the quiet moments we had here as we watched the waves and the occasional sightings of cruise ships.

It understood that weekend family outings needed not be expensive; and that our children would find great delight in simple pleasure like playing on the sand, feeling secure that mom and dad were just nearby watching them as both were also finding joy in simple pleasure of dreaming together.

After four years, we went back to the same place. It's still a beauty to behold. It saw how our children have grown much but the hearts are the same. Still, keepers of family moments who find delight in simple joy.

Life brings simple pleasures to us every day. It is up to us to make them wonderful memories.-- Cathy Allen

Your view there is incredible. I love the photos of the kids playing in the sand. All over the world, kids do the same thing at the beach, don't they? We like to go to the beach with our family too. Have a glorious Easter.
