Wispy Hair & the Roaring Sea







 Any photos taken of me are either by my mom or brother.








Last Friday, my family decided to go visit the coast line and just spend some time to appreciate nature, which is a relaxing activity to help wind down the crazy spirit week and prepare for helping out create a float for the Homecoming game. Our family rushed out of the restaurant we ate out that evening at and fit ourselves into the car. Seat belts snapped into place in a hasty matter, and we drove out. High rise business buildings slowly descended to sixties vibe buildings to tiny airport fields. Oldie songs, such as that of Journey and Creedence Clearwater blared through the stereo as the sun trickled past the trees onto the window panes.

Car doors burst wide open, and I was greeted by a blast of cool, air descending from the low pressure wind build up that would slowly transform into the impeding storm on Sunday evening. My brother and I trampled down the sandy slope, deserting our parents in their shock from the weather for several seconds. Cans of spray paint litter the ground near the recently decorated cement columns, a mutually respective part of the land mark we explored.

The ocean roared. Other individuals crowded near the bonfire several feet away from the white foam, slowly retreating up the beach. My hair tousled in the wind. The red slicker clinging onto my body was too thin to retain the body heat keeping me warm. Plunk. Stones clunked into the water. The game of skipping stones had begun. The world was cold, the wind spread my hair out into staggered fragments, and somehow, here I was on the Friday night, the only quiet moment the eve of a hectic weekend, but sometimes, it's important to keep calm, inhale the salty ocean water, and just feel the surge in my veins.

The ocean water washing the beach line with a gentle caress.
The sunset, ascended above the mountains.
Sea gulls crying.
Children holding hands and stepping on wooden plants.

This is good. This is not like the rest of the day, where so much possibility takes grasp and yet rarely captures your full-hearted attention. This is a sunset, a simple place where we do not have to worry about anything listed in an itinerary and yet can just relax and appreciate life's beauty, even if it's just for a short amount of time.

P.S. Poll on the sidebar, possibly check it out?

    1. The water is my fave too. <3 The water rose super high, so as the night kept going, we had to slowly inch away.

      xoxo Morning

      P.S. Aww, thank you! I wonder why I haven't heard of your blog until a couple of days before, either-- initially I signed up for email notifications but they haven't been working, so GFC has been the way for me. But I'm still stoked about reading your posts!

  2. Ahh morning this post was just amazingly good. YOU'RE SO TALENTED GIRL <3 It felt like I was right there with you and not in the middle of an indian monsoon storm! LOVED IT and that last bit was so beautiful & so are the pictures!! x

    1. ANNEEEE THANK YOU DARLING. <3 Funny-- a monsoon? Monsoons are TERRIFYING. But you're still super fortunate to have the opportunity to do charity work in India for an entire year! Seriously, that's one of the neatest things ever.

    1. I know, right? xD Sarah, it's ten times better to see it in person. My state has a lot of wonderful sights. Literally, there are moose spotted near the road every two months or so, and there are days where you can go take photos on the train tracks with a clear mountain backdrop-- that's how intertwined urbanization and nature is up here. If you ever have the chance to see it, then come up and just do a ton of photoshoots. xD It's worth it.

  4. Absolutely stunning photos! I can't believe homecoming is almost here and how far we already are into the school semester.

    1. Thank you, Dani! And agh, yes, homecoming came around in such a rush, but helping decorating with the game was super fun! By the end of this week, school would have been ongoing for an entire month up here, and the thought of that startles me so much. That's one month from not having the freedom of summer, but the school year does offer some good tidings, as well.

  5. That looks so beautiful <3 Gahhh I wish I could go somewhere like that sometime. Only God knows :) Your life sounds so busy, but in a really good way :) And that's good. Also those pictures are so so pretty!

    1. Autumn, if we ever did a blogger meet up, I would take you and all of the other bloggers to go and visit this place, which is the neatest place tied alongside the state park.

      Life is busy. It's not the kind of busyness that involves having to go out and extrovert with others in the evenings, but it's a different kind of taxing, like when you have so much pressure on your shoulders from school and there are just so many expectations that people expect you to uphold, but you're afraid of slipping. But it does have it's good aspects. <3

  6. I love all these photos and your description. I just really want to go to the beach!! Sometimes I wish that watching the sunset and having no schedule and no worries could be my reality.

    1. Thanks, M. YOU SHOULD DEFINITELY GO TO THE BEACH!!! The beaches here aren't like the kind that people usually see in movies, with clear sandy beaches and a white foam accompanied with the light water, no, but it possesses a much stronger kind of beauty, if that makes any sense. If you have time to watch sunsets on a holiday or days when you've given all of your effort and just need a break, just watch the sunset. Make it a reality, because it is worth it.

  8. Ahh the imagery in this! And your photos are astonishing!

    1. The imagery nor the photos do no do any justice for the photos. You need to come and see this for yourself in order to even capture a fraction of the feelings and sensations that are taken in while just watching the sun set down on the beach... though the wind was blowing really hard. xD

    1. Thank you, Savannah! I need to go and comment on some of your previous posts, all which look super good so far-- I've had three essays due in the same week. THREE. It's so much to handle, and the only way I'm able to make time for that is to strictly use the laptop only for studying, but right now, I've caught up ninety percent of the way. Will go do that after replying to comments here. ^.^

    1. You did, Elizabeth?!?? That's literally the legit coolest thing. Where did you go visit? I'll go and check out and see if you posted about it, because more often than not, we bloggers tend to post much about our trips.

      Aww, thank you! <3 <3 <3 It's okay-- I actually love talking to super young children and seniors (not the school kind, although some of them are pretty nice) so you're fine. :)

    1. Thank you, Emily! <3 My nickname post-- I'm contemplating on whether I want to either post it or submit it to a writing competition (I can't do both until the competition has passed, which won't be for awhile) although I can say that you will get to find out more about who I am within the next week or so! I'm super nervous about this... >.<

    1. It's good to find things that make you feel good about life by just stumbling upon it, and that's partially the reason why I love the internet-- you get to open up to things that you usually won't be able to see unless we go out and explore. :)
